Dane Cook, Broadway Actor


Wildly popular, oft-dismissed comedian and actor Dane Cook will now be adding Broadway to his résumé. He's making his debut this spring in a new production of Neil LaBute's Fat Pig, the 2004 incarnation of which starred Jeremy Piven. Cook will be playing the obnoxious friend of a guy (played by Josh Hamilton) who starts dating an overweight woman. Mr. Cook is warned to stay away from all sushi as he prepares for the role.
