Though both Jeremy Renner and Chris Pine were rumored for the role of Brick, the honor of saying cruel things to Scarlett Johansson on a Broadway stage will go to … Benjamin Walker, he of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (sort-of) fame. It's for real this time! Also cast: Ciarin Hinds as Big Daddy and Debra Monk as Big Mama. Previews begin in December.
