Berry and Jackson's casting in the Broadway production of the Olivier Award-nominated play has been rumored for months. Berry made the announcement during the premiere of her new film "Frankie and Alice." No official casting has been announced.
The New York Post first alluded to the casting of the two Hollywood heavyweights in July. Jackson has participated in previous readings of the play for industry members.
The Mountaintop is aiming for a fall 2011 Broadway arrival. Sonia Friedman (La Bete, La Cage aux Folles) and Jean Doumanian Productions will present the play that will be directed by Kenny Leon (Fences, A Raisin in the Sun).
