Casting Alert: Hartnett and Culkin Broadway Bound?
Last year it was announced that an unfinished Tennessee Williams play called In Masks Outrageous and Austere would be completed and would eventually head to Broadway in a version directed by Oscar nominee Peter Bogdanovich. Well, here's who I hear they're lining up for the juicy roles in this heated melodrama about glamour people: Bogdanovich's ex, Cybill Shepherd; dreamy Josh Hartnett; grown-up Macaulay Culkin; and Oscar winner Juliette Binoche. It doesn't sound that austere, but hey, it definitely sounds outrageous, and I will surely be there.
