20 Film Stars Who Have Done Broadway
1. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson is one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood. It is evident in her projects that Johansson is capable of portraying a wide variety of roles. So it comes as no surprise that the actress would give Broadway a shot.
One of Hollywood’s most talented actresses, Johansson did not disappoint, and has won Best Featured Actress in a Play for her role in A View from the Bridge in 2010, where she starred alongside Liev Schreiber. She plays Catherine, an orphan girl studying to be a stenographer who is living with her relatives.
As if she didn’t have a demanding enough schedule in between filming Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Hitchock, and Her, Johansson once again graced Broadway in 2013 as Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Maggie is the leading role in the play who, through the neglect of her husband, becomes a young and bitter bride.
Besides her engagement in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, ScarJo, as media outlets have nicknamed her, was busy promoting money making superhero action movies that same year.
