HOLLYWOOD, June 4 (UPI) -- Kevin Bacon has joined the cast of the Hollywood adaptation of the Tony award-nominated play "Frost/Nixon."

The play is based on a series of televised interviews that David Frost had with former President Nixon in 1977.

Frank Langella and Michael Sheen are reprising their Broadway roles as Nixon and Frost, respectively. Bacon is set to play Jack Brennan, Nixon's chief of staff. Already on board are Sam Rockwell, Toby Jones and Matthew Macfadyen, Hollywood Reporter reported Monday.

Ron Howard is slated to direct while Working Titles partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce the treatment of the hit Peter Morgan play with Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer.

Shooting is scheduled to start in late summer.
