The Producers' Roger Bart Films Role in SCI FI Channel's The Lost Room
Bart originated the role of Carmen Ghia in the show and eventually succeeded Matthew Broderick as Leo. He returned to the role on May 16. According to a production spokesperson, Bart missed a couple of performances this week but will be in the show this Saturday and Sunday, July 22 and 23. It is expected that his understudy will play Leo on Tuesday evening, July 25, and for both performances on Wednesday, July 26. Hunter Foster, who has previously played Bloom, will again assume the role on July 27.
The Lost Room, a six-hour miniseries scheduled to air in December, stars Peter Krause (TV's Six Feet Under, Broadway's After the Fall) as a homicide detective who stumbles upon a seemingly innocuous motel room key that unlocks the door to a world of unimaginable power. Bart plays the detective's major enemy. The cast also includes Elle Fanning as Krause's daughter.
