20 Film Stars Who Have Done Broadway

By  | 

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.
