Political satirists, Stephen Colbert recently sat down with actor James Franco on his show The Colbert Report, in which they discussed Franco’s new film Oz the Great and Powerful and his debut on Broadway. When Franco was discussing his role on the new Broadway play, Of Mice and Men, he pointed out that one character, Slim, was not yet cast and told Stephen if he was interested in taking on the role.
Colbert’s response was very positive and seemed interested in taking on Broadway for the first time, adding, “Is it a big time commitment? Because I’ve got this show to do,”.
We don’t know for sure if Colbert will be taking on his first Broadway role, but it would be interesting to the funny man up on the stage.
