Is Debra Winger Broadway Bound?

Rumor has it folks that Academy Award Nominated actress Debra Winger(Terms of Endearment, An Officer and a Gentleman, Urban Cowboy) is set to make her Broadway Debut this fall in a new production of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?". She will play the title role of the Mom which of course was made famous by the great Katharine Hepburn in the 1968 film which also starred Spencer Tracy and Sidney Poitier. The producers are looking at Bill Pullman, Barry Bostwick and Larry Bryggman for the Spencer Tracy role. I loved Brygmann in the play "Festen" which ran here on Broadway a couple of seasons ago. My money is on him! Producers are said to be looking at TV’s Amanda Bynes as the couple’s daughter. Still to be cast is the Sidney Poitier role, Dr. John Prentice, although I’m told Mekhi Phifer, of "ER," may be the final choice.
I love Debra Winger and can't wait for this to happen! Exciting stuff for sure! Who cares that she's known to be a pain in the neck to work with! (Will Ms Shirley Maclaine be there on Opening Night?) I will get to see one of my favorite actresses live on Broadway!
