From the NY Times:

Another major film star is heading to Broadway: Two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington will play Troy Maxson in a revival of August Wilson’s “Fences” in late spring of 2010, according to an executive involved with the production.

James Earl Jones played the role of Troy, a former baseball player now working as a garbage collector, in the original 1987 Broadway production of “Fences,” which won the Pulitzer Prize for drama and the Tony Award for best play that year. “Fences” was one of the late playwright’s greatest commercial hits on Broadway, running for 525 performances.
