NEW YORK, March 15 (UPI) -- Actor David Strathairn is to co-star with Jessica Chastain in the Broadway production of "The Heiress" this fall, producers said Thursday.
The play by Ruth Goetz and Augustus Goetz is being directed by Moises Kaufman.
Strathairn is best known for his work in the film "Good Night, and Good Luck" and in HBO's "Temple Grandin."
