Larry Moss, who originally staged the play's 2002 and 2007 Off-Broadway engagements, returns to stage the ACT production that officially opens Sept. 24 and will play through Oct. 11.
Eason stars in the semi-autobiographical work which, according to press notes, "opens in the final hour of Jack Henry's lifelong dream, with only one thing that stands in his way: his brother. The play closely examines what happens to two brothers in a family of overachievers: when their parents assure their oldest son that he is the one destined for football superstardom, and they tell their youngest son he is too small to compete."
Eason, who previously played for the Houston Oilers, retired and began a new career as a screen actor, appearing in such films as "Pride and Glory," "Miami Rhapsody" and "Bright Shining Lie."
Runt of the Litter is also undergoing development for a screen adaptation with "Shawshank Redemption" director Frank Darabont attached. Eason has penned a screenplay based on the 1924 U.S. Olympic rugby team for Leonardo DiCaprio's production company Appian Way, and is currently at work on a remake of the 1977 movie "Something for Joey," the true story of Heisman Trophy winner John Cappelletti.
