Jennifer Aniston: I Want to Do Theater
Jennifer Aniston hopes her next acting role is on the stage. After working with Kevin Spacey on “Horrible Bosses,” who is the artistic director of the Old Vic theater company in London, Aniston says she would love for him to find her a theater role.

“I started at theater in New York, in things that aren't remembered but yeah, I love the theater and I would love to go back to it. If the right thing presented itself…yes - with Kevin, at the Old Vic.” Says Aniston.

Al Pacino was just nominated for a Tony for his role in “The Merchant of Venice,” but then again, he's been doing theater for years.

Wolverine and James Bond…er I mean…Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig starred opposite each other in Broadway hit “Steady Rain.” Since then Jackman has performed at the 2011 Tony's and is trying to create his own concert series to debut on Broadway fall of 2012.

Edie Falco, known for playing Nurse Jackie on the Showtime hit, was also nominated for a 2011 Tony for her work in the play “The House of Blue Leaves.”

In 2008, Katie Holmes made her first step on the Great White Way in the Broadway revival of “All My Sons” which I confused for a soap-opera for a very long time. Christie Brinkley, a model, made her Broadway debut in April playing Roxie Hart in the long-running musical “Chicago.” Then again, Ashlee Simpson did this same role in 2009, so…
