Boeing-Boeing's Hahn Lands TV Deal

News   Boeing-Boeing's Hahn Lands TV Deal Kathryn Hahn, the TV and film actress who made her Broadway debut as Gloria in the original cast of the Tony-winning revival of Boeing-Boeing, has signed a holding deal with Fox, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Hahn, whose screen credits include TV's "Crossing Jordan" and film's "Step Brothers," will be considered for both comedic and dramatic roles for the television network. Marsha Shulman, head of casting for Fox, told the industry paper, "In a time when there is less money for such deals, we're taking really specific shots, and Hahn was one that both [Fox entertainment president] Kevin [Reilly] and I wanted to pursue." About Hahn's work in Broadway's Boeing-Boeing, Shulman added, "She was doing the kind of comedy that reminded me of Lucille Ball. She is very approachable, she has a very positive, happy presence. She is a great physical comedian, and I think that is missing on TV."

A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, Hahn will soon be seen in Sam Mendes' "Revolutionary Road" and Neal Brennan's "The Goods: The Don Ready Story."
