    Such a stunning play, i think Kirk Douglas played this role in the old movie.

    Loved the book..never seen the play yet…

    As for Mr. McKenzie.. I’d definitely hit it..

    Good for him! The guys from The OC seem to be really moving on in their careers.

  • Adelaide

    Yay. I am so happy for Ben. I think he’ll be great in this role.

  • Frankie

    That is excellent, I LOVE this play so much, wish he was playing Tom though but such a good career choice.

  • cami

    How much do I wish I lived in LA right now, I hope we get opening night pictures (hint, hint Jared!).
    I love that he is doing something different, isn’t September 12 his birthday?, What a stressful day for him!

  • bea

    He could have made more money playing variations of his OC character. He said those were the kind of role he was offered after the show ended. Instead he takes on challenging roles lilke this.

    I admire this guy.

    Funny that it’s the actors from The O.C. (Adam, Ben) who barely get attention from the paparazzi who seem to be getting more jobs. Rachel and Mischa on the other hand…

  • cam

    I’m proud of him.
    Thanks Jared.

    well adam and ben have careers,and i am proud of both of them,not only they have better careers , they also looks better than the girls of the o.c

    Smart career choice, Ben! I am also fascinated with him on Southland (a cop show on TNT). And now this. Hope for a great success of the stage. / Also love his work ethics, keep staying away from a Hollywood fame pit. Way to go, Ben!

  • jill

    He’s turning 32 next month! He looks so young!

  • ana

    In addiiton to the play Ben will also start production on Southland at the end of October. The next two months will be very busy for him.
