Broadway Casting Updates

There are a few casting updates that have come out in the past day or two upon which I wanted to give you all a quick updates.  First of all, Denis O'Hare has been announced as the Baker in Shakespeare in the Park's production of Into the Woods.  O'Hare is a Tony winner for his supporting turn in Take Me Out back in 2003, and has appeared in the TV series True Blood for a number of years.

A Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, possibly Tennessee Williams' greatest play, is in the works.  Tony winner Scarlett Johansson has already been announced to be in talks for the role of Maggie the Cat, a role made famous by two-time Oscar winner Elizabeth Taylor.  Today, it was announced that film star Chris Pine is in talks to star as Maggie's husband Brick -- the role played by Oscar winner Paul Newman in the film version of the play.
