"American Pie" star Jason Biggs returns to the Broadway cast of The Graduate Aug. 20.
Biggs, who left his role as Benjamin Braddock to shoot Woody Allen's new film, will rejoin co-stars Kathleen Turner and Alicia Silverstone at the Plymouth Theatre. Josh Radnor — of ABC's "The Court" — stepped in for Biggs during his absence. Biggs and Turner are scheduled to stay with the play through mid-November; Silverstone departs Sept. 1 and will be replaced by Kelly Overton.
The remainder of The Graduate cast includes Murphy Guyer, Kate Skinner, Victor Slezak, Larry Cahn, Susan Cella, Ben Feldman, John Hillner, Jurian Hughes and Robert Emmet Lunney. Former "Dallas" star Linda Gray will step in for a vacationing Turner in the role of Mrs. Robinson from Sept. 17-22.
Born in New Jersey in 1978, Jason Biggs made his Broadway debut opposite Judd Hirsch in Conversations with My Father. On the silver screen, he appeared in "The Boy Who Cried Bitch," "American Pie," "American Pie 2," "Boys and Girls," "Saving Silverman" and "Camp Stories." He will be seen in Woody Allen's new film, which is tentatively titled "Anything Else" and co stars Christina Ricci, Jimmy Fallon and Allen.
