If you want to be an EGOT winner, then you’ve got to be a jack of all trades, or an actor of all mediums. It’s no wonder there are so many stars appearing in the upcoming Broadway revival of Of Mice And Men.

After nearly forty years of taking a break from the stage, John Steinbeck‘s Of Mice And Men is coming back toBbroadway with an all star cast. James Franco, Chris O’Dowd, and Leighton Meester will all be starring in the show, all making their Broadway debuts. The show goes into previews on March 19th and opens on April 16th.


The cast and director got together for a photo call to take pictures together, as their previews and opening night are fast approaching. They all look happy to be working together and excited to share the show with us.

James Franco and Chris O’Dowd will be playing the lead roles, and Chris has expressed how he thinks his role will be a challenge due to the fact that his character Lennie is mentally disabled. “It’s a massive challenge to play someone mentally disabled. I’m going to have to just let it develop.”

Leighton Meester will also be in NYC to act in the show. Hopefully her new secret wedding husband Adam Brody will come out and support her. Wouldn’t it be a treat to sit next to him in the audience?

The show will only run through July 27th, so be sure to see these stars rock the stage while you can!
