James Earl Jones returning to Broadway this fall

NEW YORK (AP) - James Earl Jones is coming back to Broadway in a play that's almost as old as he is.

The 87-year-old two-time Tony Award-winner will star in a fall revival of the zany "You Can't Take It With You," the 1936 comedy about an engagement that forces a wealthy uptight family to meet an off-kilter one. It was written by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman.

Previews will begin in August, with official opening set for Sept. 28. Additional casting and the theater will be announced later. Scott Ellis will direct.

Jones, who won Tonys in 1969 for "The Great White Hope" and in 1987 for "Fences," was in "Driving Miss Daisy" in 2010 opposite Vanessa Redgrave, and Gore Vidal's "The Best Man" in 2012.
