Race is Spader’s Broadway debut, but he is no stranger to his role. He is a three-time Emmy-Award winner, twice for his role on legal drama “Boston Legal” and once for his role on “The Practice” – also a legal drama. Each time, he played a lawyer.
Spader began his rise to film fame with a role in the 80s brat-pack film “Pretty in Pink,” and went on to roles in “Wall Street,” “Sex, Lies and Videotape,” “Wolf,” “Driftwood” and “Secretary,” among many others.
Race, directed by author David Mamet, is currently playing at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre and has been extended to June 13.
