Jackman: Back to Broadway?


Vulture hero Hugh Jackman recently took a break from teaching robots to box to participate in a top secret, Mike Nichols–directed reading of a new play by Nora Ephron, Stories About McAlary, about the late legendary Post and Daily News columnist Mike McAlary. He's not yet committed — according to Michael Riedel, many thought he was miscast as the hard-boiled newspaperman — but should he sign on, you can expect McAlary to hit Broadway next year, and print journalism to be saved shortly thereafter.
