Timothy Olyphant to Star Off Broadway in New Kenneth Lonergan Play

Timothy Olyphant, the actor who headlined six season in FX series “Justified,” will star Off Broadway in the world premiere of “Hold On To Me Darling,” the new play by current Sundance darling Kenneth Lonergan.

Olyphant hasn’t been on the New York stage since a 1996 stint in David Sedaris’ “The Santaland Diaries.” For his return he’ll collaborate with Lonergan, the playwright (“This Is Our Youth”) and filmmaker (“Margaret”) whose new movie, “Manchester by the Sea,” is the focus of strong buzz out of Sundance.

Adelaide Clemens (“Rectify”), Jonathan Hogan, Jenn Lyon, Keith Nobbs and C.J. Wilson will appear alongside Olyphant in the play, bowing at the Atlantic Theater Company under the direction of Atlantic artistic director Neil Pepe. The storyline follows a famous country singer (Olyphant) who decides to chuck it all and move back to his Tennessee hometown.

The casting of Olyphant serves as the latest headturning development in relation to Lonergan’s work this week. At Sundance, “Manchester by the Sea,” which stars a cast led by Casey Affleck, was nabbed by Amazon in a rich deal.

At the Atlantic, “Hold On To Me Darling” begins previews Feb. 24 ahead of a March 14 opening.
