"On Golden Pond"

Normally, I'm opposed to stunt casting, but this is good. From the NYT:

"...James Earl Jones is also returning to the New York stage. After a 16-year hiatus from Broadway, he will play opposite Leslie Uggams in a revival of Ernest Thompson's 1979 weeper, "On Golden Pond," due to open April 7 at the Cort Theater on West 48th Street."

In fact, I'm predisposed towards smacking myself for even calling it stunt casting, since James Earl Jones is a multiple Tony Award winner. This should be interesting. You know, as long as P. Diddy isn't going to play the grandson.
