James Franco to Join Nicole Kidman on Broadway?

James Franco is in talks to join Nicole Kidman in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ play Sweet Bird of Youth, according to Showbiz411.

The 32-year-old actor would make his Broadway debut in the role of Chance Wayne, which Paul Newman played on film and Christopher Walken played on Broadway in the last production of the show.

James will get to test out his stage presence next year when he cohosts the Oscars with Anne Hathaway.

FYI: James and Nicole both received nominations for Independent Spirit Awards!

James was nominated in the Best Male Lead category for his work in 127 Hours and Nicole in the Best Female Lead category for Rabbit Hole.

    What’s gross is a jealous wanna be actress continuing to insult someone way out of their league in looks, talent, and apparently from their posts, class. Give it up Bijou Anastasia.
