Comic actors Tim Kazurinsky and George Wendt are set to star in Northlight Theatre's upcoming production of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, starting November 2. Artistic Director BJ Jones will direct.

Wendt and Kazurinsky will star as famously mismatched roommates Oscar and Felix. When recently-failed marriages lead them into sharing an apartment, Felix's finicky habits and Oscar's slovenly ways make for a disastrously funny combination.

Wendt is best known for his role as Norm Peterson on Cheers. His Broadway credits include Elf, Hairspray, and Art. He will be returning to Northlight after his appearance in the 2002 world premiere Rounding Third.

Kazurinsky's other Chicago credits include Chicago Shakespeare's upcoming Midsummer Night's Dream and I Remember Dada at Second City. His television work includes Saturday Night Live, Married with Children, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
