Well, a staged reading is technically acting, right???
Natalie will be taking on the role of Fran Kubelik, who was played by Shirley MacLaine in the classic movie.
Here are the other famous folks who'll be joining her for the reading:
- JK Simmons as Sheldrake (originally Fred MacMurray)
- Ken Jeong as Dobisch (originally Ray Walston)
- Nick Kroll as Kirkeby (originally David Lewis)
- Mindy Kaling as Miss Olsen (originally Edie Adams)
- Collette Wolfe as Sylvia (originally Joan Shawlee)
- Jake Johnson as Dr. Dreyfuss (originally Jack Kruschen)
Quite the cast! Sounds like Natalie will be in VERY good company for her first project since her baby was born!
…Wonder who they'll get to play Jack Lemmon's role….
