Garfield swings to ‘Salesman’

Actor in talks for Broadway stint

Andrew Garfield is in talks to join Philip Seymour Hoffman and Linda Emond in the brewing Broadway revival of “Death of a Salesman.”

Although reports have confirmed the casting, it’s said the deal isn’t done. If everything comes together, the Mike Nichols-helmed prodution of “Salesman” would land Garfield on the Rialto boards in the spring, just prior to Sony’s summer release of the comicbook reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man,” in which the thesp stars as the title wallcrawler.

The latest starry play revival from Scott Rudin, “Salesman” is said to have lined up the Ethel Barrymore Theater for its run. Venue is occupied in the fall by the limited engagement of “An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin.”

In “Salesman,” Garfield would play the role of Biff, football-star son of Willy Loman, the salesman protag played by Hoffman. Emond is on board as Willy’s wife, Linda.

Rudin is coming off a busy legit season that included new tuner “The Book of Mormon,” new play “The Motherfucker with the Hat” and play revival “The House of Blue Leaves,” toplined by Ben Stiller and Edie Falco. He was also on board the producing team of “Jerusalem,” and the prior season he produced the Denzel Washington-Viola Davis starrer “Fences.”

Dates, theater and further casting have yet to be confirmed for “Salesman.”
