Actors set for Broadway ‘Knife’

Kind, Ireland will co-star with Cannavale

Richard Kind, Marin Ireland, Adam Rapp and Joey Slotnick are among the thesps signed up to appear alongside Bobby Cannavale in the Roundabout Theater Company’s upcoming Broadway staging of Clifford Odets’ “The Big Knife.”

Kind, who’s appeared on the Rialto in “The Producers” and “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” will play the villainous Hollywood producer in “Knife,” a noir tale about a successful film star, Charlie Castle (Cannavale), whose career and personal life are haunted by a past mistake. Ireland (“Homeland,” “Reasons to Be Pretty”) co-stars as Charlie’s wife, while Rapp, the legit writer-director (“Red Light Winter”) showing up in a rare thesping gig, has signed on to play a scribe. Chip Zien is onboard as Charlie’s agent.

Ana Reeder, Brenda Wehle, Reg Rogers, Billy Eugene Jones and Rachel Brosnahan will also appear in the production, to be directed by Doug Hughes (“Doubt”).

Odets (“Awake and Sing!”) is currently having a Broadway moment, with Lincoln Center Theater’s revival of “Golden Boy” winning strong reviews when it opened last month.

“Big Knife” begins previews March 22 prior to an April 16 opening at the American Airlines Theater, where the Roundabout’s production of William Inge play “Picnic” will open its limited run later this week.
