Bond and Wolverine to hit Broadway

Daniel Craig & Hugh JackmanDaniel Craig (aka James Bond) and Hugh Jackman (aka Wolverine) are set to team up in a new dramatic play, A Steady Rain, this fall on Broadway.
The play, 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.
Although Craig began his career doing theatre in London, this will be his Broadway debut. But Jackman, a Tony award winner for The Boy From Oz, is no stranger to the stage.
Jackman gave audiences worldwide a taste of his love for live performances when he hosted the Oscars this year proving his singing and dancing talents. But even though that left audiences clamoring for Jackman to star in a musical, he wanted to do a Broadway drama.
According to the New York Post, 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 for the play Three Days of Rain in 2006.

    I just don’t get the Daniel Craig thing. I have not seen his movies, so maybe if I did, I would get what women see in him. His body is nice, but that is about him…Hugh Jackman…yes, nice.
    Is 007 worth the watch?

    Well, I’m not right into these actors or anything, but it does sound pretty good.

    Really, I’ve never seen a Bond movie. They just don’t look interesting to me. I have to have someone just rent it and put it on. I didn’t want to see the first Jarassic Park years ago, when I did, I enjoyed it. Same with Con-Air and same with Batman last year, had no desire to see it, but when I did, I loved it. So I will take your word for it and watch it, but it’ll probably take a bit for me to actually convince myself to rent it.
    I am hearing the same thing about the new Star Trek, everyone says it is a must see.
