Jim Broadbent - Jim Broadbent Eyeing William Shakespeare Role

Veteran British actor Jim Broadbent is keen to tackle another William Shakespeare play and is on the look-out for an "irresistible" role.

The Bridget Jones's Diary star performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company when he was younger, and also appeared in the 1995 film adaptation of Richard Iii.

Broadbent has featured in a number of Hollywood movies in recent years but is now yearning to return to his roots with a role in a stage production of one of the playwright's tales.

He tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "I hope to do more theatre. If someone sends me an irresistible script I'll be there. There's loads of Shakespeare I haven't done. In fact I'd like to go back and live in Shakespeare's London."
