Peter Fonda - Peter Fonda Keen To Return To Broadway

Movie veteran Peter Fonda is eager to bring his career full circle and return to Broadway, more than 50 years after making his acting debut on the New York stage.

The Easy Rider star launched his career at the age of 21 in a 1961 Broadway production of Blood, Sweat and Stanley Poole before moving into Hollywood, but he's keen to build on his theatre resume and is flipping through scripts in a bid to find the perfect project.

The 73 year old tells New York Post columnist Cindy Adams, "What I want is Broadway. I'm reading stuff now. I don't want comedy; I want drama... I saw the recent South Pacific revival here and it had me weeping... I'm an emotional fella. I saw my friends Ben Foster and Alec Baldwin in Orphans before it closed. I love live theatre. Love the stage."
