Veteran actor James Earl Jones is doubling up on Broadway – he’s already landed a new stage project before his stint in a revival of Driving Miss Daisy comes to an end.
The Star Wars legend is wrapping up his final weeks in the hit New York play, in which he stars alongside Vanessa Redgrave, and they are due to bow out of the production on 9 April.

But Jones won’t be out of work for long – he’s set to portray a fictional former president in Gore Vidal’s The Best Man, reports trade publication Daily Variety.

Michael Wilson will direct. Further casting details and production dates for producer Jeffrey Richards’ latest revival have yet to be announced.
