Jones, fondly remembered for her film musical roles in "Oklahoma!," "Carousel" and "The Music Man," won an Academy Award for "Elmer Gantry" and appeared on Broadway in 42nd Street, Maggie Flynn and South Pacific.

Modine recently appeared on Broadway in The Miracle Worker and received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for "And the Band Played On." "Family Weekend" is set to begin shooting in Detroit this month.
