Phillip Seymour Hoffman May Return to the Boards
Broadway vet and Tony-nominee Phillip Seymour Hoffman may be returning to Broadway some time soon. According to the New York Post, Hoffman is in talks to star in a revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman in 2011 to be directed by Mike Nichols. Hoffman would play the show's titular salesman, Willie Loman, and there is also buzz that Linda Emond would play Willie's wife, Linda. Hoffman was last seen on Broadway in his Tony-nominated supporting performance in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night back in 2003. Emond's last Broadway appearance was in 2003 when she starred in Yasmina Reza's Life X 3, for which she was nominated for a supporting actress Tony. No dates or further casting have been announced.
