Jennifer Garner may be returning to Broadway this fall, playing the role of Roxane in a revival of "Cyrano de Bergerac".

A film, TV actress, and producer as well, Jennifer Garner reportedly is heading to Broadway, set to join the cast of the revival of Edmond de Rostand's romantic classic "Cyrano de Bergerac".

David Leveaux of the musical "Nine" is in hand to direct the play which is about to feature a translation and adaptation by Anthony Burgess. Garner, who's said to be in negotiations, will probably play Roxanne, the French socialite with whom the title role Cyrano, played by actor Kevin Kline, is secretly in love.

"Cyrano de Bergerac," tells about the lover-warrior with a heart as big as his unsightly, overlong nose, would run for 10 weeks, beginning in October. It was memorably brought to the big screen in the 1987 film "Roxanne," in which Steve Martin played the role of Cyrano.

Garner most recently was reported to be working on a TV show described as "The View for mothers." The movie siren, moreover, has also been cast to appear in the drama comedy "Juno" which is slated for a December 14, 2007 release date.
