Australian actress Rose Byrne is set to join James Earl Jones for her Broadway debut in a revival of classic comedy You Can't Take It With You.

The Bridesmaids star and Tony Award nominee Annaleigh Ashford will play sisters in the Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman play, about a family of eccentric New Yorkers who clash with another clan over a real estate dispute.

Star Wars icon Jones was previously announced as Grandpa Vanderhof, while Kristine Nielsen and Mark Linn-Baker were also unveiled as part of the cast.

You Can't Take It With You, directed by Scott Ellis, will open for previews in August (14) at the Longacre Theatre.
