In addition to the previously announced Frank Langella (as President Richard Nixon) and Michael Sheen (as Sir David Frost). Frost/Nixon at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, will feature Remy Auberjonois (as John Birt); Shira Gregory (as Evonne Goolagong); Corey Johnson (as Jack Brennan); Stephen Kunken (as Jim Reston); Stephen Rowe (as Swifty Lazar/Mike Wallace); Triney Sandoval (as Manolo Sanchez); Armand Schultz (as Bob Zelnick); and Sonya Walger (as Caroline Cushing).

Previews for the 20-week Broadway engagement of the London sensation begin March 31.

The play earned three recent Olivier Award nominations including Best New Play. British Sheen and American Langella (a two-time Tony Award winner) were also Olivier nominated (separately) in the category of Best Actor.

Frost/Nixon recently transferred to London's West End following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse. Prior to coming to Broadway, the production is playing at the Gielgud Theatre through Feb. 3.

According to the producers, "Frost/Nixon tackles the question: How did David Frost, a famous British talk-show host with a playboy reputation, elicit the apology that the rest of the world was waiting to hear from former President Richard Nixon? The fast-paced new play shows the determination, conviction and cunning of two men as they square off in one of the most monumental political interviews of all time." Designs for Frost/Nixon are by Christopher Oram, with lighting by Neil Austin, and the music and sound score by Adam Cork. Video design is by Jon Driscoll.

Frost/Nixon will be produced on Broadway by Matthew Byam Shaw, Arielle Tepper Madover, Robert Fox and Act Productions.
