[ # ] Josh Hartnett wants to be Tom Cruise
July 2nd, 2008 under Stage

Not only does Josh Hartnett want to be Tom Cruise, he is Tom Cruise. Well he will be playing Tom Cruise’s role in the West End stage version of Rain Man starting next month according to What’s on Stage.

Hollywood pin-up Josh Hartnett is best known for films such as Pearl Harbour, Black Hawk Down and The Virgin Suicides. Commenting on Rain Man, which marks his professional stage debut, Hartnett said: “It has always been my intent to work on the London stage. While I’ve had many opportunities, it was only when I read the complex and charismatic character of Charlie Babbitt that I knew the time was right. I feel very fortunate to make my London bow … Can’t wait to live and work in London, a city I adore!”

Josh Hartnett a Hollywood pin-up? I don’t know how Rain Man will translate on the stage, but with Josh Hartnett as the lead I don’t think very well. I think he would be better suited playing the role of Raymond aka Rain Man.
Saying something positive, at least it is not a musical version of Rain Man.
