The New York Post is reporting that Tom Hanks will make his Broadway debut this January in a limited run of Nora Ephron‘s new play Lucky Guy.

The show is about a former New York newspaper columnist named Mike McAlary, who died in 1998 from colon cancer at the early age of 41. The show follows McAlary’s life during two imports periods: when he wrote about the famous Abner Louima case (for which he won a Pulitzer Prize) and when he “wrongly accused a lesbian of making up a rape charge to publicize feminist causes.”

According to the paper, Hanks has been looking to do a play in New York for a while but nothing ever gelled until Ephron, who also wrote Sleepless in Seattle, showed him the script. 

The play will be directed by Tony winner George C. Wolfe.

I guess this means I gotta be back in NYC in January?
