Skyfall star Ralph Fiennes has emerged as the frontrunner to play Henry Higgins in a new Broadway production of beloved musical My Fair Lady.
Music mogul Clive Davis is working on the show with director Bartlett Sher and he recently revealed he was hoping to land Anne Hathaway and Colin Firth as his stars, but now it appears he has another actor in mind to play posh Higgins, who was portrayed onscreen by Rex Harrison, according to the New York Post.
My Fair Lady is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, about a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from a well-to-do professor.
