Beau Bridges will replace Tony-winner John Larroquette as J.B. Biggley in the Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. It will be Bridges first appearance on Broadway in 38 years, since he starred in Who’s Who in Hell. “When the musical How to Succeed came my way, I jumped at the chance,” said Bridges, in a statement. “Samuel French recently published Acting: The First Six Lessons, a play I co-authored with my daughter Emily. We performed the play in Los Angeles for two months, and that experience reignited my desire to be on stage. I am very much looking forward to again spending time in the heart of New York City.”

Bridges will perform for six months, beginning Jan. 3. He will act opposite Darren Criss and Nick Jonas, who are both slated to take over the J. Pierrepont Finch role currently played by Daniel Radcliffe.
