Somebody must be SERIOUSLY kicking herself for all those times she blanked out on her lines!
After only premiering a month ago on the Broadway stage, Katie Holmes' new play hasn't been as well-received as she probably would have hoped for her first foray back in the game since splitting from Tom Cruise this past summer!
And even though the actress was determined enough to fix the production problems by putting in extra rehearsal hours, it's apparently just not enough…as it was announced today that Dead Accounts will now be closing seven weeks ahead of its initial schedule on January 6th!
Producer Jeffrey Finn says in a statement:

We ADORE this play!!
David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize winning Glengarry Glen Ross was a Broadway hit in the '80s before they adapted the dark, depressing story into a 1992 feature film.
Al Pacino starred in the movie, earning an Oscar nomination for his role as Ricky Roma — the slick and successful salesman at the top of the food chain.
And now Pacino wants to bring it back to the stage!!
This time, he will play

The YouTube video
everyone eight extremely bored people have been waiting for, Sh*t Girls Say About the Show "Girls!"
You know when you stand between two mirrors and your reflection gets reflected and in that reflection is a smaller reflec…
Yeah, this is THAT parody.
HBO’s Girls is basically already Lena Dunham’s poorly received TV adaptation of the shark-jumping phenomenon, Shit Girls Say.
So “girls” making a sketch about the white-washed Girls is enough to make your brain bleed.
Will U tune in next week on Girls to watch whether David Mamet and Brian Williams’ daughters make an obligatory reference to the “sh*t girls say” about them?

And with his own material! All the better!
Back in 2008, John Leguizamo starred in David Mamet's American Buffalo, which was unfortunately a box office bomb of epic proportions.
We suppose Broadway is forgiving, because they'll be allowing him back with his play Ghetto Klown, which is being directed by
that dude from Short Circuit Fisher Stevens.
The show will run for 12 weeks. Previews begin on February 21st at NYC's Lyceum Theater.
We know he's gonna kill it!

We can kind of see the resemblance!
Al Pacino will be portraying Phil Spector in an upcoming HBO film, written and directed by David Mamet.
The film is still in early development so it has yet to be confirmed whether or not it will cover Spector's murder trial and sentencing to 19 years to life.
We hope it does though, because we'd love to see Pacino wear those crazy wigs.
What do U think of the casting choice?
