NEW YORK, June 21 (UPI) -- A production of the epic "The Coast of Utopia" at New York's Lincoln Center Theater has drawn a number of Hollywood actors into its ensemble.

Actors Ethan Hawke and Brian F. O'Byrne will be joined on the set of the three-play, nine-hour epic by actors Billy Crudup, Martha Plimpton, Richard Easton, David Harbour, Jennifer Ehle and Josh Hamilton, Daily Variety reports.

Tom Stoppard's play follows the lives of 19th century Russian intellectuals.
