NEW YORK, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Sirius satellite radio is broadcasting "Theater of the New Ear," two radio dramas featuring some of Hollywood's top stars.

Among the celebrity voices to be heard on the satellite network Sept. 2 through Sept. 5 will Marcia Gay Harden, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Peter Dinklege, Hope Davis, Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

The first play, "Sawbones," was written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, best-known for their quirky movies "Fargo," "Raising Arizona," and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"

"Sawbones" was originally presented live in New York as the top half of a double bill with "Hope Leaves the Theaters." Sirius will also broadcast that radio play, written and directed by Oscar-winner Charlie Kaufman, scriptwriter of "Being John Malkovich" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind."
