Hank Azaria seems like a rather odd choice for the roll of David Sarnoff in the pending Broadway production of Aaron Sorkin’s The Farnsworth Invention
Hank Azaria will play David Sarnoff, the head of RCA, and Jimmi Simpson (“The Rainmaker”) will portray the inventor Philo T. Farnsworth. Des McAnuff will direct the production, opening on Broadway at the Music Box Theater on Nov. 14, with previews beginning on Oct. 15.
Maybe this will give the tall, lean Azaria a chance to go on an all beef and cigars diet in order to fill out the roll of the short, stumpy Sarnoff.
Jimmy Simpson did a great job with the role of Farnsworth in San Diego, it’s good to so him getting the part on Broadway.
And gee, whaddya know, November 14… the play opens the day before my birthday… let’s have a party. Aaron?
