Bill Pullman will join the cast of Manhattan Theatre Club's The Other Place beginning February 5. Pullman will play Ian, replacing Daniel Stern, who will leave the show to attend to family matters in California. Stern will play his final performance on February 3. The Other Place's limited-engagement at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre was recently extended until March 3.
Starring Emmy winner and Tony nominee Laurie Metcalf, Sharr White's The Other Place tells the story of a neurologist (Metcalf) whose research leads to a potential breakthrough in Alzheimer treatment drugs. Just as it does, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod. Directed by Joe Mantello, the production also stars Zoe Perry and John Schiappa.
Pullman currently stars as President Dale Gilchrist in TV's 1600 Penn. He made his Broadway debut in 2002 in Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?. His other theater credits include Oleanna and Curse of the Starving Class. His many films include Ruthless People, Spaceballs, The Accidental Tourist, A League of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle, Malice, Wyatt Earp, The Zero Effect, While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day, Lost Highway, Brokedown Palace, Igby Goes Down, The Grudge, Dear Wendy and Alien Autopsy.
