Zach Braff to make Broadway debut

Jun 27 2013, 10:34pm CDT | by

Zach Braff is set to make his Broadway debut.

The 'Scrubs' actor will star in the musical 'Bullets Over Broadway', based on Woody Allen's 1994 film starring John Cusack.

Zach will play a naive playwright (played by John Cusack in the movie) who gets caught up with gangsters and actress Helen Sinclair as he tries to get his latest show produced

While the female lead has not yet been announced, Vincent Pastore, Brooks Ashmanskas, Betsey Wolfe and Lenny Wolpe, will all join Zach in the production.

The musical is being produced by Woody's sister and movie producer Letty Aronson along with Julian Schlossberg.

Zach recently set up a fundraising campaign run through Kickstarter.com, to raise $2 million through donations for the independent follow up to his 2004 hit movie 'Garden State'.

The 38-year-old actor reached out to the public in a funny pitch video, featuring cameos from his former 'Scrubs' co-star Donald Faison, as well as 'The Big Bang Theory' star Jim Parsons and comedian Chris Hardwick, in a bid to raise money for his next feature called 'Wish I Was Here', which he co-wrote with his brother Adam.

He said: "I was about to sign a typical financing deal in order to get the money to make 'Wish I Was Here,' my follow up to 'Garden State.' It would have involved making a lot of sacrifices I think would have ultimately hurt the film.

"After I saw the incredible way 'Veronica Mars' fans rallied around Kristen Bell and her show's creator Rob Thomas, I couldn't help but think (like I'm sure so many other independent filmmakers did) maybe there is a new way to finance smaller, personal films that didn't involve signing away all your artistic control."

The campaign closed with $3.1 million in May.
