Tom Hanks made his Broadway debut earlier this spring in Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy, and now the A-lister may have another splashy stage debut up his sleeve. The U.K.’s Daily Mail reports that Hanks is in early talks to transfer with the Tony-nominated play to the West End as early as spring 2014. A rep for the Broadway production declined to comment.
Hanks received a Tony nomination for his role as famed tabloid columnist Mike McAlary, whose coverage of the corrupt police beat in New York City in the late ‘80s and ‘90s earned him a Pulitzer Prize and a place in the national spotlight. The show opened on April 1 at the Broadhurst Theatre and will play a recently extended limited engagement through July 3.
Joining Hanks in the George C. Wolfe-directed show are fellow Tony nominee Courtney B. Vance, Maura Tierney, Christopher McDonald and Peter Scolari, as well as Peter Gerety, Michael Gaston, Brian Dykstra, Dustyn Gulledge, Danny Mastrogiorgio, Stephen Tyrone Williams, Deirdre Lovejoy, Andrew Hovelson and Richard Masur.
In addition to Hanks and Vance’s acting nominations, Lucky Guy also earned nods for Best Play, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design of a Play and Best Lighting Design of a Play.
