Well, this just has Tony's written all over it!

Mike Nichols announced yesterday that he would be directing the Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman next fall, and Philip Seymour Hoffman would be stepping into the role as Willy Loman!

Although Hoffman is arguably a lot younger than Loman for the majority of the piece, Nichols doesn't seem too deterred, and explains:

“Willy is different ages over the course of the play — young, middle-aged, old — but what matters is finding the right man to play the part. I’m thrilled to be doing this with Phil.”

We're thrilled, too!

There's no way that this will be anything less than spectacular!

What do U think?? Are U excited for a revival of Death of a Salesman??

    This could be the most boring news I've read in a coon's age.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman can do anything and be anyone. Death of a Salesman is a very deep story. In this day and age it has limited appeal when people would rather watch lame things like Glee and vampires that sparkle. That's a real shame, but that's the dumbing down of America.

    Hoffman looks like road kill.

    Mazel Tov! Philip Seymour Hoffman is an incredible actor who will bring a new dimension to the role of Willy Loman! Indeed, this opus will be getting a Tony — just wait and see. In fact, I'm planning to attend a performance during previews.

    If I were to call him a walrus, would he smack me in the head?
