LATEST: Katie Holmes would be perfect for the lead role in a Broadway revival of play ALL MY SONS, according to the show's producer.
Holmes is said to be in final negotiations to join John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest on stage, playing Ann Deever in an autumn 2008 New York production of Arthur Miller's post-World War II tale.
Representatives for the actress have refused to confirm the reports, but producer Eric Falkenstein is desperate to cast her.
He says. "Katie is very well suited for the role of Ann. There is an additional layer of soul to Ann and from the work I've seen of Katie, she has always impressed with multi-faceted characters. She would nail it.
"Despite being in the spotlight and her celebrity status, the fact remains that she has a tremendous record of performances. I think Katie is a tremendous actor. Whenever she decides to come to the stage she'll be terrific."
In January (08) Holmes spoke of her desire to conquer the New York stage, revealing, "There's nothing concrete. I've always had that fantasy when I was growing up, to be on Broadway."
