In the Spotlight Series: THE COUNTRY HOUSE's Eric Lange
Manhattan Theatre Club's New York premiere co-production of The Country House, the new play by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, is currently playing at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, starring Tony and Emmy Award winner Blythe Danner, Kate Jennings Grant (The Lyons, Proof), Eric Lange (FX's "The Bridge," "Weeds"), David Rasche(Regrets Only, Speed-the-Plow), Sarah Steele (Slowgirl, Speech and Debate), and Tony nominee Daniel Sunjata (TNT's "Graceland," Take Me Out). Below, BroadwayWorld brings you photos of Lange in the BroadwayWorld.com series 'In The Spotlight' by acclaimed photographer Walter McBride!
Tony and Emmy winner Blythe Danner (The Commons of Pensacola, Meet the Parents) stars as Anna Patterson, the matriarch of a brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists who have gathered at their Berkshires summerhouse during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. But when the weekend takes an unexpected turn, everyone is forced to improvise... inciting a series of simmering jealousies, romantic outbursts and passionate soul-searching. This witty and compelling new play provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives.
Lange starred on the first season of FX's hit drama, "The Bridge." He has a long list of TV credits but is perhaps best known for his recurring arcs on "Weeds" (Showtime) and "Lost" (ABC). On film, Lange will next appear in Dan Fogelman's Imagined (opposite Al Pacino) and Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler (opposite Jake Gyllenhaal). Previous films include Secretariat for Disney, and Barry Levinson's HBO biopic You Don't Know Jack. On stage in Los Angeles, Lange received an Ovation Nomination for his work in Driving Miss Daisy at the Rubicon Theatre. He was in A Streetcar Named Desire, also at the Rubicon, Ugly's First World at the Actors' Gang, The Normal Heart at the Hudson Backstage Theatre, and Asylum at the Court Theatre. Lange previously appeared in The Country House at The Geffen Playhouse. He is thrilled to be making his Broadway debut in this play. When not acting, Lange enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife, Lisa, and preparing to be a dad for the first time.
