John Goodman & Tom Sturridge join Damian Lewis in West End revival of American Buffalo?

RadioTimes have announced that Hollywood actor John Goodman will star alongside the previously announced Damian Lewis in David Mamet’s 1975 play American Buffalo.

UPDATE: Baz Bamigboye claims Tom Sturridge will complete the cast.

Directed by Daniel Evans, the production runs at the Wyndham’s Theatre between 16th April and 27th June 2015. Goodman told RadioTimes that the play was “on my bucket list” and he said he was looking forward to the production immensely.

Considered a classic of the American canon and recognised as one of Mamet’s masterpieces, American Buffalo premiered at the Goodman Theatre, Chicago and opened on Broadway on February 16, 1977. The play was also adapted into to a 1996 film starring Dennis Franz (Don), Dustin Hoffman (Teach) and Sean Nelson (Bobby).

American Buffalo is produced in the West End by Playful Productions.

Producers are yet to officially confirm this news
