NEW YORK (AP) - Brendan Fraser and Denis O’Hare will star in the comedy “Elling.”

Producers announced Thursday the casting for “Elling,” which will arrive on Broadway in November. It will begin performances at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Nov. 2 and open Nov. 21.

“Elling,” adapted for the English stage by Simon Bent, is based on the Norwegian novels of Ingvar Ambjornsen. The books, about a pair of roommates, were previously made into the 2001 Oscar-nominated movie by the same name.

O’Hare will play the compulsive title character and Fraser will play the enthusiastic Kjell. It will be Fraser’s Broadway debut, though the actor has performed on the stage in London.

Producers say Jennifer Coolidge and Richard Easton will co-star.

The production premiered in London.
