Broadway/OffBroadway actors in dramatic PRISONERS movie

Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Terence Howard, Viola Davis, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo, and Len Cariou.

Even though they are probably much more well known for their film acting fame, except of course for Len who created the role of Sweeney Todd, these actors have performed in either Broadway or off-Broadway plays. Their acting chops go well whether it is closeup ( cinema) or footlights ( stage) time. Will we see more of them on Broadway in the near future?

PRISONERS has just been voted second runner up for the People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival and will open this week in the USA.

They are actors first and foremost! They have been winners or nominees for Oscar acting honors or other film awards. Some have been winners or nominees for Tony awards. Does it matter where they show off their craft?
