The Scarlett Johansson-toplined revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” has gone from possibility to certainty, with a production also starring Ciaran Hinds, Benjamin Walker and Debra Monk gearing up for a run that begins in December.
Set to direct is American helmer Rob Ashford (“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”), best known for staging musicals in the States but also the director of well-received play revivals in London.
Johansson, whose last gig on Broadway scored her a Tony for her turn in the 2010 revival of “A View From the Bridge,” will play Maggie the Cat. Hinds, last on the Rialto in 2007 play “The Seafarer,” is onboard as Big Daddy and Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) — returning to Broadway after his breakout 2010 perf in musical “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson — is set to play Maggie’s husband Brick. Monk takes on the role of Big Mama.
Ashford is no stranger to starry play revivals, having won raves in Blighty at the helm of the 2011 Jude Law starrer “Anna Christie” and the Rachel Weisz-toplined 2009 staging of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” both produced by London’s Donmar Warehouse.
Stuart Thompson, one of the producers of “View From the Bridge,” produces “Cat.”
Production of the 1955 Tennessee Williams play is the third to land on Broadway in the last decade, with a 2003 revival starring Ashley Judd followed in 2008 by an all-black production with a cast that included James Earl Jones and Phylicia Rashad.
Newest version of “Cat” begins previews Dec. 18 ahead of a Jan. 17 opening at the Richard Rodgers Theater.
I added some amazing scans of Scarlett in the October issue of Vogue (Russia) to the gallery.

She says her actions got lost in translation. Actress Scarlett Johansson was spotted holding hands with ex-squeeze Jared Leto at the Democratic National Convention Thursday – even resting her head on his arm at one point – but insists the political pairing was completely platonic.
“Scarlett and Jared have remained friends, nothing more, nothing less,” her rep told the Daily News Friday. “This is very innocent. Scarlett wasn’t even aware that Jared was going to be at the DNC.”
The rep said the “Avengers” star is still dating New York advertising guru Nate Naylor, her boyfriend of about a year. Johansson, 27, dated Leto back in 2004 before her two-year marriage to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds. Leto, 40, is known for his role in “Requiem for a Dream,” his band 30 Seconds to Mars and his long list of Hollywood hookups, which includes Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz and Ashley Olsen. Sitting amid a sea of stars including Don Cheadle, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks, Johansson beamed Thursday night as Leto whispered in her ear and snapped photos with a cell phone.
As we previously announced. Scarlett attended yesterday to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte (North Carolina). You can watch the video of her speech clicking here and here you have some extracts:
“I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.”
Johansson, dressed in rust-colored pants, stilettos, a tan blazer and a shirt featuring an American flag, spoke of growing up in a struggling middle-class family in New York City and living in a housing development for lower-middle-class families. Her family depended on benefits for school transport and food, she said, and some of her friends still depend on Planned Parenthood and Medicaid.
“That’s why I’m here today, to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”
“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for,” she said. “I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”

Democrats have lined up some star wattage for Wednesday’s events at the Democratic National Convention. According to a tentative schedule given to CNN, Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington are set to appear in Charlotte.
No final details have been released, but given the Democratic party’s strong ties to the Hollywood, the rumor doesn’t come as much as a surprise.
Representatives for Johansson did not comment for CNN’s story. Washington’s said she was currently filming in Los Angeles, but did not deny a scheduled appearance.
If this ad featuring Scarlett Johansson looks a tad familiar, congratulations! You are a true fashion historian, as well as, most likely, a classic movie fan.
At first blush—yes, we just went there—this ad for Dolce & Gabbana foundation appears to showcase a fresh, natural look. Technically, it does. But look closer, young padawans—note the strong eyebrow, the slightly winged eyelid, the long, blond hair, the mouth that is both smiling and pouting.
Someone—and by someone we mean some Francophile at D&G—just might be trying to channel a bit of Catherine Deneuve into our ScarJo. Not that we’re complaining. Even when she’s just wearing a bed sheet, (and, we presume, a whole lot of foundation), the girl looks fantastic.
