They are familiar faces on American TV, but fans may be surprised to hear that Kiefer Sutherland and Chris Noth are now to tread the boards on Broadway.
Kiefer, best known as 24's Jack Bauer, will swap saving the world form terrorism for the more down-to-earth role of a former American jock.
Chris, who plays Sex and the City's Mr Big, will be working alongside Kiefer in a revival of Jason Miller's 1972 play, That Championship Season.
The work follows the lives of four former US college athletes who gather for a reunion with their high school basketball coach 20 years after winning the state championship.
