Comedian Jim Gaffigan ("I'm from Indiana. I know what you're thinking, Indiana...mafia") has been cast in his first Broadway role.

The guy who has mined humor out of Hot Pockets and bacon will be starring this spring in a revival of the basketball drama "That Championship Season," along with Kiefer Sutherland, who will also be making his B'way debut. Chris Noth, a stage vet best known for TV's "Sex in the City," and Jason Patric are also in the cast.

Brian Cox, currently on movie screens in "Red," will play the former coach of the middle-aged former court stars.

Gregory Mosher, who has directed such plays as "Our Town," "Speed-the-Plow" and, most recently, "A View from the Bridge" in New York will be leading the creative team on this one. Previews are set to begin in March.

So, do you think Gaffigan has what it takes?

  • Love Jim!
