With the label "two-time Tony Award nominee" (rather than plain-ole by-the-book country boy Luke Duke, as we know him!), Tom Wopat is making the news for launching the 10th national tour of the stage production of "Chicago" at the Belk Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Tuesday, November 11. Our "Dukes of Hazzard" cuz dons the lead role of Billy Flynn in the musical.
BroadwayWorld.com, which also has a nice cred page for Wopat (with photos!), has the coverage, as does Playbill and several others. You can also learn more about the production from its official site, ChicagoTheMusical.com.
Robin Wright Penn, meanwhile, has been generating buzz for her role in what is not-so-affectionately been dubbed "the Dakota Fanning rape movie," "Hounddog." Our own Kelly Capwell of "Santa Barbara" was at the movie's premiere with its other stars in the Big Apple the other night. See some photos of our lovely star here.
