Newbie To Kill A Mockingbird

One of the biggest hits on Broadway is To Kill a Mockingbird.  When the show opened last year, it starred Jeff Daniels.  Then he left and the role of Atticus Finch was taken over by Ed Harris.  It’s just been announced that when Mr. Harris leaves Broadway on April 19th, he will be replaced by Greg Kinnear.  Let’s play a little game I like to call “Who turned down that role?”  Because, lovely as Mr. Kinnear may be, does anyone really think he was the producers’ first choice?  Don’t you think there are a few actors in between Ed Harris and Greg Kinnear?  OK, so maybe they couldn’t get Scott Baio.  But what is David Faustino doing?  By the by, the press release indicates that this will be Kinnear’s Broadway debut.  Shocking!
