Home Theater Zach Braff Goes Off Broadway Again; John Slattery Waits for “Mad Men,”...

“Scrubs” star Zach Braff is heading back to off Broadway. The “Garden State” director-writer appeared last summer at the Second Stage company in “Trust” and got great reviews. Now he’s written a play that Second Stage will produce this coming August. No cast announcements yet. But Braff is connected to lots of good actors in New York, where he’s resumed residence after success in Hollywood. Actually, as he said the other day, “I’m back and forth.”  I’m sure this play, like “Trust,” will have all the summering Hamptonians making the trip into the city…

…Meantime John Slattery, who co-stars in “The Adjustment Bureau,” opening in movie theatres next week, is also waiting for the “Mad Men” situation to be resolved. Slattery– aka Roger Sterling–  was at last night’s premiere of “Good People” on Broadway with wife actress Talia Balsam, whose famous mother, Joyce van Patten, will soon open at Studio 54 in “The People in the Picture,” a musical. Slattery has absolutely no inside info; no one does. Balsam had a funny observation though (she plays Roger Sterling’s ex wife on “Mad Men”): “As a fan, I used to get really angry when it took so long for The Sopranos to come back–like a year and a half. Now we know how it really feels!”
