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.

    Katie did Dawson’s Creek and a few low budget, no-name VHS movies. That makes her a great candidate! The only reason she’s in magazines or on Justjared is because of who she married. Nothing more. No one even knew who she was before all the public display of kissing with her and Tom.
    She’s a gold digger.

  • American

    Yes, #43. There could be this elaborate conspiracy or…she ran the marathon! Why is that so hard to believe?

  • libraesque

    #52, you must be new to the internet or at the very least to JJ. The whole marathon scandal was picked apart, so you need to google it yourself and read the facts.
    NOTHING about katies participation adds up, even hard core marathoners chimed in on the simple fact that you CANNOT run a 26 mile marathon 1) without a bra, and not have your nipples bleeding and fall off 2) run a marathon and be photographed in high heels a couple hours later…and thats JUST for starters

    so educate yourself and google. get all the facts, then make your own decision

  • Emma

    Scientology project. BOYCOTT!

  • Emma

    “Yes, #43. There could be this elaborate conspiracy or…she ran the marathon! Why is that so hard to believe?”

    Maybe since everything directly and indirectly involving Scientology is fake and dishonest, just as you are.

    “American”, change your nickname to American Freak, that’s more appropriate, since you are a member of the Cult. You don’t fool anyone here. You are very transparent.

  • American

    Yeah. It was picked apart and guess what? No eveidence of cheating! None at all! Spokespeople had to even come out and defend her. No way could they have covered everything up. There are cameras and witnesses everywhere. It’s strange about the bra and hugh heels things but that’s not evidence now is it?

    I’m not a Scientologist.

  • 2cent

    Well we all know what spokespeople will say–whatever their payee commanded. Who are the witnesses? Paid spokespersons? Camera every yet only caught picture of KH at two points–somewhere in the line and at the end of the line. Let’s see more pictures then, good if some showing her soaking in sweat.

    You said ‘no EVIDENCE of cheating’ and we say ‘no EVIDENCE of honest running’. Show your evidence, witnesses and let us judge how credible they are. Then maybe you’ll win this case. Although I doubt it would make your KH talented, beautiful, charismatic and stylish, or your TC taller, less creepy, less manipulative, less calculated, less greedy and less fake (of his gayness).

    You are not a Scientologist American, just a paid employee of TC. Keep earning your worth.

  • American is a Freak

    “american” : “I’m not a Scientologist.”

    Yes, you are. And you are a liar as well, like all cult nuts.

  • masha

    Glad for Katie! Go you girl, ignore all these stinking bigots!!!

  • rien

    Glad for Katie? I feel sorry for Arthur Miller! Such a character like Ann Deever needs to be played by somebody who has the capability to do it. And Katie Holmes does not have it. She is a pale, plain actress…I even loathe myself to call her an actress, she is a tv-star. She can not and will not conquer the big screen, let alone the stage.

    Joan Allen, talk to the Broadway director, please…..don’t let him ruin the play!

    Stinking bigots? Think, masha. Think for one cent, then we talk again!

  • Lidya

    Katie, you must have done something right. I hope what ever the director saw in you…the public will see also. ignore the jelous people. The more successful someone is and the more famous…people get nastier.
    All the best and I’ll be one of the first people to see the play when it comes out.

  • susanna

    Not true Lydia, many famous, succesful people are adored and respected by the public. TC and his GF made their own bed they now lie (and I mean lie) in.

  • libraesque

    #62, you mean BEDS….plural, and in seperate rooms!


    and I have to agree with whoever posted above that the quote definitely sounds like Falkenstein is wishing her well IF and WHEN she goes to Broadway….”Whenever she decides to come to the stage she’ll be terrific.”

    #56, if that isn’t evidence WHAT is? OH WAIT, theres the issue of her chip not being visible. Theres the issue of her having headphones on, a VIOLATION of the rules. theres the issue of her sweats being so long they were dragging on the ground and yet after 26 miles they weren’t dirty or frayed. theres the issue of her not having a drop of sweat on her, or ANY color in her cheeks.

    I could go on and on but I won’t because it doesn’t matter to me what you believe. Your blind devotion to this couple is embarrassing, and you couldn’t make a valid point if you tried.

    btw, you never did answer my question about ALL the charities tc gives to ALL the time. I’ll keep asking till you answer

  • American

    It’s stupid to think that anyone who defends them is either a Scientologist or paid to do it.

    Do you question other people if they ran the race or not? There’s no evidence and testimony taht she in fact ran the race. Just face it. You’re being stupid.

  • eh!

    American wrote: “There’s no evidence and testimony taht she in fact ran the race. Just face it.”

    He or she finally admit that KH did not run. Yes, you are Smart!

  • libraesque


  • Emma

    “American”. Not “anyone”who defends them” is a scientologist or paid to defend them. However, YOU are one, I’m sure of that. This site is infested with cult people writing “innocent” comments, designed to change public opinion. Anyone can see that. You are more subtle and less aggressive now since many know the truth about it, but the goal is the same. To lure people in.

    Your people even run commercials on the site, so you’re here and active alright, and you “American” , are one of them.

    You know, what really is stupid is to defend a cult if you truly know what it is about and what it does to people. It is not only stupid, it is irresponsible. If you know the truth about the cult of scientology it is not possible to defend it, nor those who promote it. Period.

  • American

    Are you people hearing yourselves? Plants? Secret identities? Recruitments? It’s something staright pout of the X-Files.

    I’m not a Scientologist and she ran that race. Get it through your heads

  • tkfan

    Good luck Katie!!!

  • Bree

    Marie: TDK glory belongs to Bale,Eckhart especially Ledger.

    Its wise for Katie to leave the role. Read the L.A. Times and Empire movies for the spoiler of Rachel Dawes.
    The second trailer shows that anyway if your eyes are quick to see the details.

  • hoyas

    I saw on CNN Showbiz that they are desperate to hire her. Katie is an awesome versatile actress and her presence will bring attendance to the disappointment biz of Broadway lately.
    Katie rocks in Pieces of April,The Gift,Batman Begins,Ice Storm,Singing Detective and Thank you for Smoking.

  • juliette

    Katie was not asked back for Batman because Nolan did not trust she could pull it off for the Dark Knight, and anyway, Katie was not respected by audiences neither by critics, so in a way it’s better for her not to continue on with something everybody hated her in.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal was signed for two sequels and Rachel Dawes will have more importance in TDK and the following sequel. But Maggie is much better actress and she can star along with Christian Bale and others, as Katie was so mediocre she was out of place in Batman. The big mistake is that Maggie should have been cast right away for Batman Begin.

    Katie’s career is pretty much over if all she has left is to go to Broadway for a supporting role. Tom must have bought the theater. Katie has zero talent.

  • dion


  • gotham

    Im entertained and smile away because blessings drives jealous people insane. Maggie G. is not signed for part 3 when rumors are already leaking of Selina Kyle’s appearance/Catwoman.
    The truth and justice will set Katie free.

    The joker will do many fans a favor.

  • Ruby

    :):):):):):) LOVE HER

  • redwhiteblue

    Very good move by Katie.The only sad part is Im far from NY so I wont get to see her in this play. So sweet for the family to support the filming of Connor too on the set of Will Smith’s movie. Suri is so cute.

  • peach

    I wanted Katie so much for TDK but after learning the spoilers I changed my mind because it will be fun to witness that instead for Maggie. Read Cinematical and L.A. Times on what Aaron Eckhart giving away major spoilers. —(if you hate spoilers dont read them)

    Also google Empiremovies on TDK trailer breakdown because they talk about Rachel Dawes. —-(-if you hate spoilers again last warning to stay away)

  • Dan

    She is a TV actress, not particularly successful or talented. All she had was a pretty face. She looked cute and that’s gone. She doesn’t have the raw talent to work on serious projects. She hasn’t done anything to merit this type of role. She looks and acts like a cult zombie now.

    This opportunity is bought and payed for with cult money. She is pathetic , and so is the attempt to construct a fake image for her that is based on air.

    Boycott anything related to the Cult of Scientology.

  • TMZ

    Comments #69,70,71 and 73, 74, 75, 76, 77 are obviously all from the same loser, probably that Katie Holmes weirdo which has 100 aliases on IMDb. What kind of tool is that to idolise a crappy c-list actress as Katie Holmes?!! Pathetic. Get yourself some taste.

  • renee

    Im proud of her.

  • libraesque

    WHAT are you proud of???

    can’t you people READ???
    The producer said “Whenever she decides to come to the stage she’ll be terrific.”

    where in that sentence do you hear that they are even considering her????

  • Donald

    Yes, the scientologists are very proud of their image robot. What a transformation! They especially like her new hairdo in the picture above, and the new, fake lips. Could you sue them for robbing someone of their personality and looks?

  • American

    This part, #81:

    “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.”

    Sounds like they’re considering her

  • dean

    How can ANYONE run a marathon wearing yoga pants that are so long they drag on the ground?

    And IF you do wear yoga pants, how, after 26.2 miles are the yoga pants NOT dirty and frayed from the dragging on the ground?

    HOW can ANYONE run in the NYC marathon and be allowed to wear head phones? Since it IS against the rules for ALL legally entered participants.

    HOW can ANYONE the has entered the NYC marathon be allowed to NOT have their chip show on their shoe?

    Since it IS a rule that ALL chips MUST be visible on ALL legally entered participants shoe!

    Just some SIMPLE questions. I’d like the answers to be kool-aid free!

  • Brad

    She didn’t run that marathon. Give me a break. Everything about this insignificant and corrupt person is fake. Her image is based on smoke and mirrors. No substance at all.

    People see this for what it is, an attempt by the cult to create a fake image and ideal in order to promote their money-hungry, brain-washing cult.

  • American

    You sound like a complete idiot, #85.

    Fake racing for promoting Scientology (when I don’t even think she’s ever said the word aloud)?

    Why has no evidence ever come out, Dean? Just these silly questions that you’ve come up with after overanalyzing everything?

  • jessie

    Haha. “American” is obviously an idiot. I bet he’s a member of the cult. Morons fall for that kind of crap.

  • dean

    Okay, cult lover #86 If they are such “silly” questions, then tell us the answers!

  • dean

    Oh and NO she did not “say” a word. BUT she did wear an advertisement for the cult on her head.
    oh, forgot about that?

  • American

    I’m an idiot yet I’m not foolish enough to fall for the silliest crap that the tabloids feed you?

    What ad on her head?

  • dean

    The tabs don’t feed me, cult lover. I have a mind of my own and I use it. The facts are the facts and a picture is worth a thousand words.
    Per the pictures that the GMD let his PR team release, kh was NOT following the NYC marathon rules. WHY?

    The hat on her head was an advertisement for that fake fund that the cult set up to take further advantage of the 9/11 victims.

  • carrotts

    Congrats to her. I love TomKat the couple too.

  • American

    Some mind of your own? You swallow everything that the tabloids say.

    She simply wore hat with an insignia or her preferred faith and you see that as Holmes running that race to promote her religion?

    How the hell should I know why she had headphones on but wouldn’t that prove she ran it in a way? You’d think an elaborate conspiracy between the Chucrh of Scientology and the New York City marathon would have seen that

  • 2 American

    It doesn’t have to be elaborated. It’s simple as this, some people can be bought, and there are ways to let things appear a certain way without risk of losing a job. Health department workers get paid to pass supermarkets, restaurants all the times. It really doesn’t need to be elaborated. A few thousands could do wonder sometimes. A couple of mortgage payments would work fine for a marathon where thousands of people mingle, most don’t know who ran next to them.

    KH did not run 26 miles, a few miles may be, not all 26.

  • American

    She ran that race. There is just no way that no evidence could have come about after so much scrutiny.

  • dean

    ALL of the evidence proves that she did NOT run the full 26.2 miles. NONE of the evidence proves other wise.

    The cult lovers are the ONLY ones that believe what they are brainwashed to believe.

    Some of the runners wear tee shirts in memory of a loved one. katie HAD to wear that cult hat.

  • 2 American

    Listen honey, unless you ran next to KH all 26 miles, you have as much evidence of her running that marathon as we for her not running.. Why don’t you quit? Maybe this is your job?

  • American

    Why don’t YOU quit? Is it YOUR job to bash her as it is supposedly my job to defend her?

    There’s no evidence. Just circumstantial stuff like headphones (pretty good oversight for this biog conspiracy) and wearing high heels several hours later.

  • dean

    AND the FACT that she did NOT obey the rules and have her chip on the top of her shoe in an UNobstructed place for it to register.

    GEE! If you cannot see her chip then how can it register??? OH THAT’S RIGHT! The guy NEXT to her was wearing HER chip.

    HEy cult lover, all you have to do is “jump ship” and you too will be able to read and hear the truth!

  • solaris

    1. Is there any rule in this Marathon, that everybody has to obey? Like: having a number, chip to monitor if the contestant take the route or take short cuts, certain barricade or directions (arrows) so that the contestants can see where to run?
    If yes, they who do not follow can be called “joining” the Marathon. It is not like in a film that an actor is uncredited from time to time. Possibility: KH joined but she did not finish the run. Very bad? For me, it happened.
    2. American, do you have a proof at all that she joined or not? You can not simply defend somebody because you like her. Otherwise, many criminals will be set free:
    “Your honor, I don’t have proofs, but I believe she doesn’t commit a crime, because I like her…”
    Okay, KH is not a criminal, but I am only saying, that you have to start thinking logically.

    An advise from a stranger, American: Don”t share their lives. Open your mind a little bit, and don’t defend anybody blindly. You will be disappointed heavily in the end.

    An actor is only an entertainer. You can like or dislike, but you don’t have to swallow every words of theirs and make it as your rule. If she joined the marathon or not, if she takes part or not, does it hurt you?
