And I know he's young so of course he hasn't, but Timothee Chalamet would be a treat to see in any drama. "Huh? Chalamet is too young to have been on Broadway? He’s 24 not 8. Lucas Hedges is 23 and in THE WAVERLY GALLERY right now. Heck, Matthew Broderick was in his teens when he was in countless Broadway plays. <<edited by BWW staff>>

Allegedly, Steve Carell has no interest in performing on Broadway. Of course, other people have said that and then persuasive producers or great roles have coaxed them to the stage.I'd love to see three of today's Oscar nominees onstage: Christian Bale (who got his start in theatre in the UK), Melissa McCarthy, and Richard E. Grant.
I’d like to see Kate Winslet on Broadway one day. She also only needs a Tony to complete the EGOT (Altho no idea what she got her Grammy for!)
Also, while there are plenty of exceptions, generally very few actors in their early 20s have been on Broadway, especially if you don't count child actors (which Chalamet was not, to my knowledge). It may have been wrong to say "of course" he hasn't, but it's not that much of a stretch.

Arnold Schwarzenegger (Lee) and Clint Eastwood (Austin) in True West.I was going to nominate Roger Howarth (Todd in One Life to Live) but a check on IBDB says he was in The Lion In Winter.Sandra Bullock, Amy Adams and Isla Fisher in Crimes of the Heart

It's too late, but Jack Nicholson.
Benedict Cumberbatch is overdue. He's done a lot of work on the London stage, but never in New York, to my knowledge. Same goes for Tom Hiddleston. I imagine both have gotten offers many times that didn't pan out. I'll also add Claire Foy to that category of British stage/screen stars who just have never done a play in New York before. Lily Collins as well.As for a younger group without as much stage experience, I would love to see Olivia Cooke, who was really amazing in Amazon's Vanity Fair. Many actors mentioned previously in this thread I fear would struggle to make their subtle choices come across in big theaters, but I think Margo Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence, and Anne Hathaway could all carry star vehicles.On a related note, it's been over 40 years now since Meryl Streep has been on Broadway. It's been over a decade since her last stage performance (Mother Courage). I would pay so much money that I don't have to be able to see her on Broadway.
Both Anna Kendrick and John Travolta have appeared on bway.The former even got a. Tony nom. The later was in the original run (as a replacement) of Grease. High Society - Anna Kendrick
