In other Denzel news, the actor is headed back to Broadway!!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will return next year to star in Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh.

The Iceman Cometh is an epic 1939 drama, first produced in 1946, set in a down-market New York bar and following the circuitous conversations of its go-nowhere patrons. The one bright light in this dim world is the occasional visits of Theodore Hickey, a colorful traveling salesman whose garrulous manner appears to bring some relief from the atmosphere of hopeless desolation and empty dreams. That role will be played by Washington in the new production.
