Call it his next big event: EW has confirmed that TV vet Blair Underwood will make his Broadway debut as Stanley Kowalksi in the upcoming revival of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. Yep, he’ll be the one, like Marlon Brando before him, screaming “Stella” and looking yummy. No word yet on who will be joining him as twisted sisters Blanche and the aforementioned Stella.
Two-time Golden Globe nominee Underwood, who can be seen onscreen alongside Emma Roberts in The Art of Getting By come Friday, most recently starred in NBC’s canceled sci-fi series The Event. Tony-nominated director Emily Mann will helm the play, which aims to open in Spring 2012.
