Jessica Chastain is set to play the part of Catherine Sloper in the revival of the 1947 play “The Heiress”. The part to be played by Chastain won Olivia de Havilland her second oscar and Cherry Jones won a tony in the 1995 broadway revival. This will be Chastain’s broadway debut.
And somewhere in the midst of all this, she’s going to be in Kathryn Bigelow’s Navy Seals/Bin Laden movie set to start shooting shortly
I will definitely see THE HEIRESS with Chastain…Now lets hope for 2 strong actors to play Morris and the father…
I can picture Brian Dennehy as Catherine” s father and Robert sean Leonard or Billy Crudup as morris…DREAM CAST!!!!
This woman seems unstoppable.. I have no doubt she will captivate NY audiences, I have thoroughly enjoyed her presence onscreen this year.
