The six degrees of Kevin Bacon could very soon include Transparent creator Jill Soloway.

EW has confirmed that The Following star is in discussions to join the cast of Solloway’s new Amazon comedy pilot, I Love Dick.

The series, based on Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel of the same name, would feature Bacon as Dick, a charismatic professor who becomes the object of obsession for a struggling, married couple. Kathryn Hahn will play Chris, one half of the couple, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news.

The role would mark Bacon’s return to the small screen after a three-season stint on Fox’s The Following, which ended last year; Bacon is also attached to reprise his role in a possible TV series based on the sci-fi film Tremors, EW previously reported. 

Solloway, the creator of the Golden Globe-winning series Transparent, will executive produce the series and direct the pilot.
