Kevin Anderson, who recently left the Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman July 25, found himself back in the show July 31. Anderson performed the role of Biff in the Friday, Saturday matinee and evening and Sunday matinee performances this past weekend, confirmed Anderson's agent.
Ron Eldard took over the role of Biff on July 28, but soon dropped out of the production. It could not be discovered as press time the reason for his absence, but sources close to the production reported Eldard's voice had been bothering him. His understudy reportedly filled in for a few performances before Anderson was asked to return.
Anderson was nominated for a Tony Award for his portrayal of Biff. Eldard most recently appeared Off-Broadway with Calista Flockhart and Paul Rudd in bash, Neil LaBute's collection of monologues. Eldard made his Broadway debut as Terry Malloy in On the Waterfront. His television and film credits include "Sleepers," "Scent of a Woman," "Mystery Alaska", HBO's "When Trumpets Fade" and a season of NBC's "ER."
