Is Kevin Spacey Returning to Broadway?
According to the New York Post, a Broadway return may be in the works for Tony Award winner and Emmy-nominated House of Cards star Kevin Spacey.
The publication reports that Spacey is in the process of adapting the 2005 Oscar-nominated film Good Night, and Good Luck for the stage. George Clooney, who directed the historical drama and cowrote the screenplay with Grant Heslov, will not have a large hand in the production (aside from a possible producing credit), though Heslov may join the project.
Good Night, and Good Luck portrays the conflict between radio and television journalist Edward R. Murrow and anticommunist U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. David Strathairn starred as Murrow, with George Clooney as television producer Fred Friendly, and Frank Langella as CBS chief William Paley. Spacey would take on the role of Murrow in the stage production, which is currently in its very early stages.
Spacey was last seen on Broadway in the 2007 revival of A Moon for the Misbegotten. His other Broadway credits include The Iceman Cometh (Tony nomination), Lost in Yonkers (Tony Award), Long Day's Journey Into Night, Hurlyburly, and Ghosts. He has starred in the hit Netflix series House of Cards as Frank Underwood since 2013, a role that has earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.
