Daniel Craig will make his Broadway debut this fall alongside fellow screen icon Hugh Jackman in "A Steady Rain," an emotional, two-character play by Keith Huff about two Chicago cops trying to get through a rough day.
Craig might be new to the big lights of Broadway, but this isn't his first time on stage. The "Defiance" actor worked with the Royal National Theatre in London and was nominated for a 2002 London Evening Standard Theatre Award.
Jackman is known for his dangerous claws in "Wolverine," but the theater vet won a Tony in 2004 for "The Boy from Oz."
The play opens Sept. 29 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in Manhattan.
Hugh Jackman knows how to make the ladies purr -- and his 9-year-old son Oscar is following in his dad's footsteps!

Hugh says Oscar will even walk up to girls and tell them, "You know my dad is Wolverine."
Sexiest Wolverine Alive Hugh Jackman just conquered the box office with $175 million in worldwide ticket sales for "X Men Origins: Wolverine," and now he wants to conquer another musical... with Beyoncé!
Following their dazzling Oscar musical number, Mario asked Jackman if he would do a musical with Beyoncé, perhaps directed by Baz Luhrmann. "Me and Beyoncé. I will do anything," he told us. "I am the one talking up all those rumors. And Mario, maybe you can be in it too, buddy!"
As for the success of "Wolverine," says Hugh, "I was blown away. I was so grateful to the fans and to everybody who came out in force and seemed to love the movie. I just want to say thank you to them. I love my job. I feel like the luckiest guy. Don't tell, but I'd do it for free!"
This weekend, Jackman's going head-to-head with the crew of the Starship Enterprise as "Star Trek" hits theaters, but Jackman has no worries. "I am a big believer that there's always room for good movies. I am going to go see 'Star Trek.' My good buddy Eric Bana is in it... I'm not competitive about it. I hope they both do well."
So, if Wolverine and Spock duked it out, would the action hero take down the Vulcan? "Mate, let's be honest. It's not really fair. I might be a little bedazzled by the ears and maybe the costume at first. That might throw Wolverine, but I don't think it will go twelve rounds."
In the meantime, "Wolverine" fans can rest assured since there already is a sequel in the works. Jackman told Mario, "Yes, mate. The fans have been very vocal about the story they want to hear and that's the Samurai story set in Japan."
Hollywood's leading men may act tough onscreen, but in real life these celebrity dads melt for their children! Now "Extra" takes a look at some star dads in Tinseltown doing what they do best -- enjoying time with their little ones.
Hugh Jackman is all muscle in the upcoming "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," and the movie star tells "Extra" his rock hard bod is working wonders in the bedroom!
Jackman confesses he wanted audiences to be uncomfortable watching him and think, "Okay, this guy's dangerous." Hugh says his wife Deborra-Lee wanted to rip his clothes off, "She was like, 'Hugh, this is kind of ridiculous. I'm not sure who you are right now. Now, get into bed.'"
The heartthrob also tells "Extra" he's good pals with his "Australia" co-star Nicole Kidman, saying, "Nic and I are genuinely good friends. In fact, Nic and my wife shared a house together when Nicole first came to Hollywood. So we all know a lot about each other. We could ruin each other's career." He continued, "But we won't."
Is it true Hugh Jackman is angry about a rough cut of "X-Men: Wolverine" leaking on to the web? You don't want to tick off Wolverine!
That's true -- Jackman's not a happy Aussie. The actor admits, "It's a serious crime and there's no doubting that it was very, very disappointing. I was heartbroken by it."
Tens of thousands of peeps download the pirated version of the flick. The 40-year-old says viewers didn't see the finished version that will be on the big screen. Jackman tells the press, "People are seeing an unfinished film from months ago, so it's kinda like a Ferrari without a paint job." The FBI is investigating the leak.
"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" slashes into theaters May 1.
