Pop singer Sophie Monk, Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos, and Oscar winner Mira Sorvino will join writer/performer Chazz Palminteri for an industry only reading of Palminteri's new Broadway play Human in September. The play, helmed by Jerry Zaks, is aiming for a Fall 2013 Broadway opening.

Palminteri, who will be starring as a Wall Street banker in the new play, previously starred on Broadway in his solo show, A Bronx Tale, and also starred in a film adaptation of that work. His additional stage credits include the 2002 Off-Broadway production of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, while film credits also include The Usual Suspects and his Academy Award nominated role in Bullets Over Broadway.

The cast of the reading is not confirmed for the Broadway production.
