Star of the stage, Billy Porter, is in talks to join director Barry Levinson’s adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel The Humbling, which centers on an aging stage actor whose empty life is altered by a "counterplot of unusual erotic desire" - he gets involved with a much younger woman, after retiring to his upstate New York farm, and they engage in all kinds of sexual experimentation, until the fun ends.

Porter, whose role isn't yet public info, joins a cast that already includes Al PacinoGreta GerwigDiane Wiest and Mandy Patinkin.

Todd Gilbert and Avi Lerner are producing.

Porter can currently be seen starring in Kinky Boots on Broadway, a performance for which he won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.

He last appeared on the big screen in the Chazz Palminteri-directed ensemble holiday drama Noel.
