James-Franco-InsertEveryone knows that James Franco isn’t one to sit around, he’s everywhere, and now that everywhere includes the Broadway Stage. The popular actor confirmed the news earlier today, he spoke briefly of his upcoming work during the ‘Live Talks with James Franco’ event in California.
So obviously there are two choices here for Franco, the role of Lennie and the role of George. Franco didn’t confirm his character today but Us Weekly reported that Franco was given the role of George. The role of Lennie went to Chris O’ Dowd according to the same report.
It will be an interesting ensamble, though the other major roles have yet to be announced. We will of course keep you updated as the project moves further along into production.
