Chris Pine Joins Scarlett Johansson in 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof'?

Scarlett Johansson may be teaming up with Chris Pine for a new Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

The 27-year-old actress’s Avengers co-star, Jeremy Renner, was rumored to be playing her alcoholic husband, Brick, but Chris is “now a leading contender [but] no final decisions on the role [have] been made,” according to the N.Y. Times.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof would mark Scarlett‘s return to the Broadway stage. She won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress for her work in 2010′s A View From the Bridge.

Mitt Romney and his creepy wife baptize Jews after their deaths into the Mormon cult against family wishes. this includes Anne Frank and other Holocaust victims. These people are crazy freaks and they obviously hate and disrespect Jews.

Some of you are so humorless on this site. JESUS!

I love Chris Pine, but I vote Jeremy Renner because he and Scarlett had amazing chemistry in The Avengers and I’d like to see that explored in different roles.

If CP wants to play this role… I hope this happens… I saw the movie on TV with Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman… a great movie… Chris would be awesome like Brick, I think…

Jeremy Renner because him and Scarlett Johansson have amazing chemistry! Plus Renner is a great actor!

I think Jeremy And Scarlett would be good together. I like Chris Pine very much but I don’t know if he has the intensity for Tennessee Williams.

Oh and I believe every horrible thing they say about Mitt Romney and his wife and religion. He is a greedy, unexeptable candidate for president.

I vote for Jeremy Renner.

I vote for Jeremy Renner as well.

Sean Penn – Sean and Scarlett would bring the house down, and sell every single seat. It would be monumental. Sean is a great stage actor.

I love Jeremy…..all the way! He’s HOT!

Chris Pine would ROCK as Brick. Its an incredibly difficult part, but he has the intelligence to really get behind that character. I’m sure Dominique would love having him in New York, too!

If his excuse for doing this play is to be near his girlfriend, perhaps he should rethink his priorites? Isn’t it better to have someone who really wants to do the play instead of someone who may end up doing a half-ass job?

Renner is a very good actor. Pine? don’t know. he really doesn’t have much other than Star trek. his other films have been rather forgettable…..
As for his “girlfriend”, she’s an opportunist… wonder how many “HW doors” opened for her! LOL

U said it esmeralda, his so called gf sure makes sure she drops enough hints to link her name to his…Christina sounds like dominique herself…stick to twitter u silly dumb twit

Dont quit your day job! What world are you living in?
Oh yeah…make believe!
