Justin Long signs up for Broadway debut

- Associated Press - Thursday, March 1, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) - The first new student has been revealed for the Broadway play "Seminar" _ Justin Long.

Producers announced Thursday that Long will make his Broadway debut alongside Jeff Goldblum on April 3 for eight weeks as a new cast takes over at The Golden Theatre.

The original cast is Alan Rickman, Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater, Jerry O'Connell and Hettienne Park. They will play their final performance April 1. Other replacements will be revealed later.

In Theresa Rebeck's play about the soul-torturing world of authors, four budding writers are taught about life by a crass, pugnacious novelist-turned-tutor. Long will take over Linklater's part.

Long's films include "The Break Up" and "Dodgeball." On TV, he was in "Ed" and "New Girl." He's also known for Apple's "Get a Mac" ads.
