Casting Couch: Shia and Alec are Orphans; Bo Bice is a Pump Boy

Tis the season of new announcements. With the new lot of shows coming in late Winter, casting has been announced for some of their productions. First up, Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf are set for Lyle Kessler's Orphans. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the production will open at the Schoenfeld on April 7, 2013 with previews beginning March 19. Second, American Idol alum Bo Bice will lead the John Doyle helmed Pump Boys and Dinettes. Pump Boys will begin previews at the Circle in the Square Theater on March 19 with an opening set for April 8. LaBeouf and Bice are not your standard Broadway hoofers, so how do you think they'll do? Will you go see them?
