Los Angeles, March 19 IANS | 4 months ago

Actor Kevin Spacey is heading back to the London stage to reprise a character he first portrayed over two decades ago in TV movie "Darrow".


The "House of Cards" star will play a pioneering 19th century American lawyer Clarence Darrow in a "One-man" play at The Old Vic venue, marking his 10th anniversary as the theatre's artistic director, reports contactmusic.com.

Spacey also tackled the role of Darrow in a 2009 Old Vic revival of "Inherit The Wind".

A statement issued by the actor reads: "I am thrilled to be returning to The Old Vic stage, for the first time performing in the round, such an exciting transformation of our Old Vic space for actors and audiences alike.

"As I celebrate ten years at the helm of this very special theatre it feels great to be returning to the character of Clarence Darrow, whom I played both onstage in Inherit the Wind and 22 years ago in the film Darrow, directed by one of my 'House of Cards' collaborators, John Coles."
