Katie Holmes is Bound for Broadway

Katie Holmes is Bound for Broadway

Katie Holmes will reportedly make her Broadway debut in a production of Arthur Miller‘s All My Sons this fall.

Back in March, Katie was still in final negotiations, but now the deal is all but certain. Producer Eric Falkenstein told OK! Magazine he thinks Katie is perfect for the part.

Katie is very well suited for the role of Ann,” he says. “There is an additional layer of soul to Ann and from the work I’ve seen of Katie, she has always impressed with multi-faceted characters. She would nail it.”

“Despite being in the spotlight and her celebrity status, the fact remains that she has a tremendous record of performances,” he says. “I think Katie is a tremendous actor. Whenever she decides to come to the stage she’ll be terrific.”

A formal announcement is expected to take place within the next 10 days.

    At least she chose a great play. But then, you can hardly do wrong with Miller. He remains one of the best dramatists ever alongside O’Neill. I saw two productions of The Crucible and Death of a salesman and they were both outstanding.

    She made HUGE mistake not reprising her role in the Batman movies. That is going to be the blockbuster hit of the summer.

    She was great in Pieces of April along with Patricia Clarkson, but she tends to pick bad roles, so let’s see.

    OMG!! She’s going to play Ann? Is the director on drugs, or did Tom pay him some nice green backs for this?

    Marie:

    I’m so glad she’s NOT in Batman. She was sooo out of place in that movie. Next to Christian — she didn’t have a chance!

    # 25 3cents @ 05/13/2008 at 10:23 am Agree with 2cents – she got this job the same way she got to “run the NYC marathon”. Cruise money and pressure
    ===================
    She NEVER ran the full marathon. She knows it and so do a great many people who ran in it know it’s all LIES!!

    #31, I too thought she was terrible in Batman am glad she didn’t revive it. She ruined the movie for me in fact. Saw no acting, nothing. Wonder where did this director or producer see her ‘multifacet’ acting.

    Miapocca Says:

    Please dont ever compare Jen Garner to this RoBoHo…Garner deserves much better.,..she is a kick **** lady with a stable NORMAL family and a ridicullously WELL adjusted HAPPY kid with a beautiful name to boot….

    How insulting….KH fans you might do better comparing Holmes to the low level gold diggers in hollywiers, even Paris Hilton has a job adn serious cash flow coming in, which is more than I can say for your RoBoHo

    She ran that marathon, folks. You’d think that after months of scrutiny with NO eveidence and even officials pokespeople backing her, you’d realize that she ran the marathon.

    I think she’ll do great in the play.

    julie Says:

    that’s right, there IS no evidence that she ran the marathon. Just
    another illusion money can buy.

    kit Says:

    From what he’s seen she has had great performances? On stage? So, does that mean she didn’t have to try out for the part?

    American Says:

    I think the producer was referring to her film and TV work and then Holmes auditioned for him

    2cent Says:

    American,

    If you think those in the organizing committee of the NY marathon would come out and admit that Katie’s participation was bought, you must be incredibly naive.

    2cent Says:

    By the way, had TC not jumped Oprah couch I would never have noticed KH. She turned me off to her acting completely in Batman. Basically, she has neither beauty nor talent nor charisma. All TC money hasn’t helped her fashion ambition either.

    It seems like Just Jared cannot understand English. Nothing in the statement made by the producer implied that she is joining the play, infact in the 3rd paragraph he seems to be wishing her well for the future, not welcoming her to the play.

    “Whenever she decides to come to the stage she’ll be terrific.” = Good luck to her for the future.

    I will be very surprised even shocked if she is a member of the cast.

    It’s apparent that Katie Holmes is not a particularly talented actress by any standard, but once she married Tom Cruise her opportunities to work in films and on stage, if she wanted, were increase a 1,000 fold. It’s not about her talent but whom she married. It’s sure not how it should be or very fair . . . but then in life not much is fair . . . Seems like she might have sold her soul to the devil for more fame and profit . . . so to speak

    julie Says:

    Well said 2cent. KH seems with time to have even LESS beauty, Less charisma, Less talent , LESS style and she didn’t start out with much to begin with.
    She is a declining bimbo, doesn’t look like she can even handle Suri.

    julie Says:

    She is a declining bimbo. TC can’t buy her the qualities she lacks.

    KH needs to take a parenting skills class.

    can the cruises please go away already? they have outstayed their welcome…..by a long time. if they are such a “happy family” and they are so content in their own company and doing such domestic things (like baking cupcakes…blah blah blah…..wtf ever), they should be more then satisified just spending time at home ALONE (where the general public doesn’t have to witness their freakish posing and posturing). they have no clue how rediculous they appear to the REAL world.
