Broadway Actors Take Over The Newsroom

If you didn't overdose on Broadway stars after this past Sunday's Tony Awards, and the season finale of Smash, then you're in luck. HBO is continuing its habit of plucking Broadway actresses and actors right out of their dressing rooms and into the casts of shows -- like Lena Dunham's Girls (see Dunham's ex-gay-boyfriend on the show, Book of Mormon star Andrew Rannells). And Aaron Sorkin's new drama The Newsroom is no exception. The show is about a tortured Howard Beale-esque talking head (Jeff Daniels, a noted theater actor), and it premieres Sunday, June 24th. For a sneak peek at scenes featuring prolific New York theater actors, Alison Pill, John Gallagher Jr. and Thomas Sadowski visit! And in the meantime, here's the trailer to get your heart pumping. Our deadlines here at Paper seem like two weeks on a Disney cruise ship compared to this!
