God of Carnage

I mentioned a couple days ago that a new Broadway cast for Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage should be announced any day now, and sure enough, yesterday ArtsBeat delivered the news. They’re all familiar faces—though surely, none as familiar as the current cast—and will take over on November 17.

TV vet Jimmy Smits (Dexter, The West Wing, NYPD Blue, L.A. Law) will take the part of Alan currently being portrayed by Jeff Daniels; Annie Potts, whome you may remember as the Ghostbusters’ secretary, inherits the role of Annette, currently performed by Hope Davis; Christine Lahti, who you may remember best from Chicago Hope, takes over from Marcia Gay Harden’s Tony-winning performance as Veronica; and Scotsman Ken Stott will play Michael, currently being portrayed by James Gandolfini.
