UPDATE (Dec. 10): After this post was first published, the schedule was tweaked. Othello will run through Jan. 18.
ORIGINAL POST: Some details have emerged about Daniel Craig’s non-007 projects. Namely, it appears the off-Broadway production of Othello, in which the actor will play Iago, will have a short run.
The schedule is not yet on the website of the New York Theatre Workshop. However, on the message board of the MI6 James Bond website, poster Red_Snow found a link to a casting notice for the play on the website of Playbill.
The notice says all roles have been cast, but that “Equity actors for understudies and possible replacements” are being sought.
Also, according to the notice, the play’s first rehearsal will be Oct. 11, the first preview on Nov. 16 and the play will open on Dec. 5. The closing will be Jan. 15.
The actor is involved with various projects, including the heist movie Logan Lucky, filming this fall, and the limited TV series Purity, which goes into production in 2017.
At this time, it’s uncertain whether Craig will return for Bond 25. Regardless, the Othello production, which was announced last year, won’t take up an enormous amount of the actor’s time.
Updated for those who thought Craig was playing Othello (even though the post never said that).
