James Franco to Join Nicole Kidman on Broadway

James Franco seriously does it all. He can add Broadway star to his jam-packed résumé, which includes being an Oscar-nominated actor, Oscar co-host, director, author, Vanity Fair cover boy, college grad student and more. He’s set to star opposite Nicole Kidman in a revival of Tennessee Williams’ Sweet Bird of Youth, where James will play a gigolo who becomes the companion of Nicole’s aging actress. The play’s director, David Cromer, has praised James’ talent and said, “Very rarely do you find an actor who can really take on the varied complications of this character, which is one of those virtually uncastable Williams parts.”
