Actors Studio names trio as co-artistic directors

Move aims to split up org's duties for busy co-prexys

NEW YORK — The Actors Studio has appointed board members Carlin Glynn, Lee Grant and Stephen Lang to serve as co-artistic directors of the 60-year-old nonprofit dedicated to the development of actors, playwrights and directors.

Move aims to split up artistic direction duties at the org for its busy co-prexys Ellen Burstyn, Harvey Keitel and Al Pacino and exec director Deborah Dixon.

“We are all thrilled to have three longtime members and valued teachers to share in the responsibility of the artistic direction of (the studio),” said Burstyn on Tuesday. “As a co-president, along with Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel, we’ve discovered a successful formula for maintaining our busy careers and for sharing the responsibility of the studio’s future.”

Glynn’s credits include a Tony-winning turn in “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” as well as bigscreen roles in “Continental Divide,” “Sixteen Candles” and “Gardens of Stone.” She has served as a drama instructor for Columbia U., the Actors Studio Drama School and Sundance Institute Filmmakers Lab.

Grant won an Oscar for her role in “Shampoo” and Emmys for “Peyton Place” and “Neon Ceiling.”

Multihyphenate Lang has acted in features including “Tombstone,” “Manhunter,” “Gods and Generals” and “Gettysburg.” He has appeared in legit shows “A Few Good Men,” “Death of a Salesman” and “Wait Until Dark.”
