Sounds like it is almost a ‘go’. And full disclosure, I hate Of Mice and Men with a deep, deep passion. We had to read that book in highschool and it was like swallowing nails. Ugh. Hated every second of it. So, I am not psyched they’re bringing it to Broadway again with these 2 actors that I happen to like a lot, especially Chris O’Dowd.
The Oscar-nominated actor James Franco (“127 Hours”) is set to make his Broadway debut this spring as George in a revival of John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men,” possibly opposite Chris O’Dowd (“Bridesmaids,” “Girls”) as Lennie, a person directly involved with the production said on Thursday.
