Anne Hathaway will appear in Shakespeare in the Park's production of Twelfth Night this summer, the Public Theater announced today. The Oscar-nominated actress, who happens to have the same name as Shakespeare's wife, will play the lead role of Viola in the play, which is scheduled to start performances June 9. In case you're not familiar with the plot, Viola spends most of it dressed up in male drag as a servant to a duke whom she falls in love with. Hot.
