Wolverine and Bond on Broadway. Together!
Get me to New York in the fall. This from The New York Post:
Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman will team up in a new play this fall on Broadway, The Post has learned. The drama, "A Steady Rain" (excellent choice. As you can see, they both look great wet) by Keith Huff, is about two Chicago cops whose lifelong friendship is put to the test when they become involved in a domestic dispute in a poor neighborhood. Craig ... will be making his New York stage debut. He started off in the theater in London, playing bit parts, but he has not appeared in a play in several years. Jackman won a Tony Award in 2004 for his role as Peter Allen in "The Boy From Oz." "The Boy From Oz" regularly grossed more than $1 million a week. Jackman became the most sought-after leading man in the theater, though he's turned down every offer to star in another show until now. "Everybody wanted him to do a musical, but he wanted to do a serious play," a theater source says ... Theater sources say Craig and Jackman have the potential to match Broadway's biggest box- office champ, Julia Roberts, who sold over $10 million worth of tickets in just 12 weeks in the play "Three Days of Rain" in 2006. Although "A Steady Rain" is harsh and harrowing, one Broadway wag predicted that even those theatergoers whose tastes run to splashy musicals will want to see it. Said the wag: "Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman in police uniforms? All the boys will be there!"
