One of the more interesting side gigs among filmmakers these days is Jason Reitman's occassional live readings of famous scripts. The format is pretty straightforward: he picks a script he likes, rounds up a bunch of starry friends and then hosts a live performance with the cast embodying the various roles, and reading it live on stage. “The Breakfast Club,” “Shampoo,” “Reservoir Dogs,” “The Princess Bride,” “The Big Lebowski,” "The Apartment" and "American Beauty" have all been given new interpretations, but his latest choice might be his most intriguing yet.

When we last heard of the Broadway revival of the Pulitzer prize winning “Glengarry Glen Ross,” it was reported that Al Pacino would be joining the cast as the sadsack and desperate Shelley “The Machine” Levene, played by Jack Lemmon in James Foley’s 1992 film adaptation, instead of the role that nabbed him an Oscar and Golden Globe nod. And now, The New York Times is reporting that the role of the voluble Ricky Roma will go to the underrated Bobby Cannavale.

Of David Mamet's many accomplishments for the stage, the Pulitizer prize winning "Glengarry Glen Ross" may still be his finest moment. And at least for cinema fans, it's the most memorable. With a script from Mamet, James Foley directed the searing 1992 movie that brought together the unforgettable cast of Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin and Jonathan Pryce to immortalize the work into one of the most quoted movies in recent memory, and also one that is said to be used by lots of actors for audition purposes. Certainly, there are some choice monologues to choose from. But if you're ever wanted to see it performed on stage, you'll get another shot.
