Dane Cook to Make Broadway Debut With 'Fat Pig'


Dane Cook


The comedian will join Josh Hamilton who has been cast in the Neil Labute's production.

Comedian Dane Cook is preparing to make his Broadway debut next year in an upcoming production of Neil Labute's "Fat Pig". Ashton Kutcher had been in talks to lead the project in 2009, but negotiations reportedly fell through and now Cook will tread the boards as a bachelor who falls in love with a plus-size girl.

Actor Josh Hamilton has signed on as Cook's co-star, while other roles have yet to be cast. The comedy was last staged off-Broadway in 2004 and enjoyed a successful run in London's West End in 2009.

Dane Cook was last seen gracing big screen in 2008 with "My Best Friend's Girl". He has completed production for "Answers to Nothing" which has not secured a release date yet.
