Greg Kinnear to Join To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway as Atticus Finch

Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird is welcoming a new face to its Broadway company. Producer Barry Diller announced today that Academy Award nominee and two-time Emmy Award winner Greg Kinnear will make his Broadway debut in the iconic role of Atticus Finch beginning January 5, 2022, at the Shubert Theatre. Jeff Daniels, currently reprising his Tony Award-nominated performance as Atticus Finch, will take his final bow on January 2, 2022.

Greg Kinnear first came to national attention as the first host of the popular television show Talk Soup, which he hosted from 1991 to 1995. After hosting a late night talk show in 1994, Kinnear turned to film where he appeared in such flicks as Sabrina (1995), Dear God (1996), You’ve Got Mail (1998), Mystery Men (1999), Nurse Betty (2000), We Were Soldiers (2002), Stuck on You (2003), Little Miss Sunshine (2006), and Baby Mama (2008), among many others. He received a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nomination for his turn as Simon Bishop in the 1997 film As Good As it Gets starring Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt.

Currently, Tony Award-nominee and Emmy Award-winning star Jeff Daniels and Tony Award winner Celia Keenan-Bolger lead a cast that includes Portia as Calpurnia, Hunter Parrish as Jem Finch, Michael Braugher as Tom Robinson, Russell Harvard as Link Deas, Neal Huff as Bob Ewell, Erin Wilhelmi as Mayella Ewell, Noah Robbins as Dill Harris, Zachary Booth as Horace Gilmer, Gordon Clapp as Judge John Taylor, Patricia Conolly as Mrs. Dubose, Christopher Innvar as Sheriff Heck Tate, Ted Koch as Mr. Cunningham, and Amelia McClain as Miss Stephanie, with Ian Bedford, Rosalyn Coleman, Anne-Marie Cusson, Michael Bryan French, Steven Lee Johnson, Tyler Lea, Mariah Lee, Geoffrey Allen Murphy, Luke Smith, Yaegel T. Welch, and William Youmans rounding out the ensemble.

Set in Alabama in 1934, Harper Lee’s enduring story of racial injustice and childhood innocence centers on one of the most venerated characters in American literature, the small-town lawyer Atticus Finch, played by Daniels. The cast of characters includes Atticus’s daughter Scout, her brother Jem, their housekeeper and caretaker, Calpurnia, their visiting friend Dill, and a mysterious neighbor, the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley.
