This news does not give us a Great Depression! It makes us happier than tending to rabbits!
James Franco is set to make his Broadway debut in John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, which will go up at the Longacre Theater.
James will play the part of the quick-witted migrant ranch worker, George Milton, while Family Tree and Girls star Chris O'Dowd is set to make his debut as the simple-minded, Lennie Small. Maybe a shirtless Seth Rogen can play Curley's wife?!
The play's opening night is set for April 16th, with previews beginning March 19th, and tickets going up for sale on January 11th. We could stroke a puppy we're so excited! But lightly. Not the way Lennie strokes it.
Break a leg James…but don't break your arm. You know what, just stay away from hiking in general during the rehearsal process!
