'On Golden Pond' Revival Faces Closure

24 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Broadway revival of On Golden Pond is set to close on Sunday unless its ailing star, James Earl Jones, can return to the production next week. Jones, 74, has been replaced by Charles Turner since taking leave from the New York production on June 15 to battle a bout of pneumonia. But following the actor's absence, box office receipts have plummeted, with the play filling less than 40 per cent of the seats at the Cort Theatre. Producer Jeffrey Finn says, "No one wants to close this amazing production, and we're all eager to take down the provisional closing notice, but if he (Jones) is unable to return in the near future, closing is our most financially responsible decision." On Golden Pond opened in April to largely positive reviews, particularly for Jones, who portrays professor Norman Thayer. »

Jones sent to 'Room' for Hallmark pic

10 February 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

James Earl Jones is reteaming with his Roots: The Next Generations director Georg Stanford Brown for the Hallmark Channel original movie The Reading Room. The movie centers on a widower (Jones) who opens a reading room -- a library of sorts where he teaches people how to read -- in a lower-income neighborhood to honor his wife's dying request. But he encounters problems when the room becomes a target for street thugs, who later burn it down. Room co-stars Keith Robinson (Fat Albert, NBC's American Dreams), Joanna Cassidy (HBO's Six Feet Under), Lynne Moody (ABC's General Hospital), Douglas Spain (HBO's Band of Brothers) and Gabby Soleil (Johnson Family Vacation). Brown, who is set to direct Room, will take the role of a minister in the movie, which is targeted to premiere during Thanksgiving. »
