Katie Holmes headed for Broadway

The former Mrs. Tom Cruise is wasting no time in reviving her acting career.

Not quite two weeks after "amicably" settling her divorce with "Mission: Impossible" star Cruise, 33-year-old Katie Holmes has taken on her next big project.

The "Dawson's Creek" actress is heading back to Broadway, as a cast member of the new play "Dead Accounts."

She'll star as "Lorna" in Theresa Rebeck's five-character stage comedy, which will be directed by Jack O'Brien. "Dead Accounts" will be showcased at the Music Box Theatre in New York City starting this fall.

It will be Holmes' first return to the Broadway stage since she starred in 2008's "All My Sons," but that's not all she's got up her sleeve. Holmes also recently taped a guest appearance as a judge on "Project Runway."

Plus, she is expected to start shooting "Molly" - a film she co-wrote and will produce - any day now. It's about a single mom raising her daughter.

    i have many people who have reblogged my info and thank you so much! i've been working for 29 years and cannot tell you how blessed i have been right now at the firm i've been with.... the kids today need 2 careers especially the way things are– if they are unable to find a job in one field they have the other field to fall back on. the kids are next and i hope all is well when its their turn to find careers.

    i've been down this road of job stress since 2005 and i cannot express how serious it is to put a buck away. i work with the richest people in the world and their back to taking subways. so everyone is cutting a corner somewhere and there is no reason why we can't. take a vacation, go out to dinners. in between the fun – save $200-$300 a paycheck . i'm not suzie orman but i am in the heart of what is happening to us every single day.

    i just hope everyone understands the tough times are not over yet and people are taking charge of their financial lives.

    we're in still terrible financial times..the best thing to do is keep your money near you. if you have $1000 live like you have $700-which is what i keep telling the kids coming into the world. you work as a life guard, put 40 bucks away in an account, burger king put 40 bucks away. we have to get real about financials. if we are blessed with it, we have to keep it there.

    Katie is rich and on her own and not a desperate housewife at all, which is what i'm glad to see. I don't think TC went with other women, he just could not take it anymore and had to bow out. i am sure Suri will do great and TC can finally move on.

  20. simple analysis

    his past wives have left cruise because of the scientology manipulation and control. nicole kidman has to get permission by scientology leaders to see her own kids, which is a joke.

    katie's siutation will be different her father is a lawyer and will make sure Katie will not lose Suri. Katie and Suri will move on shortly, Cruise will be there as their father, i do feel he is a good father. Cruise needs to get away from marriages right now... everybody will survive - its a done deal.

      How can people who limit anything within the confines of a marriage, call it a marriage. The two people become partners and if one denies access to the money made DURING the marriage, it never existed. Let greedy Tom keep his money. I'm sure it brings this "family" man and "husband" great pleasure

    forgot to include she is an estimated worth of 25m-30mil on her own. that's not too bad for 33 yr old actress who is not experienced in the industry. as i previously said i feel she will remain in theater, it seems that is where she is most comfortable.

    she does not have much acting experience in the industry, she is well liked and she did a good job as jackie kennedy. she has to keep acting and continue her acting lessons and i think she will primarily remain in theatre. Tom Cruise will take care of his family, however he needs to not be married for now.

    he's still hot for his age, great body and will get married again but he needs a break.

      I know you mean well. I don't see Cruise taking care of his family - he takes care of his money. Did you see him in 'Rock'? He looked old, had a gut and was flabby. Only certain angles enhanced him. I see him as a squirmy little man who needs to control in compensation for his size.

    Good for Holmes, whose primary role in this divorce was to create her own status and start boosting her career. She is no actress by far, she doesn't come across the screen or on broadway like most talented artists do. She has quickly pushed her divorce, enrolling Suri in a Catholic School, and now her priority is herself. Good move all around. Wonder how successful she will be? Still because she is known as Tom Cruises ex, no doubt this has made it easy for her to launch herself. Before she was tied to Cruise, she sat in limbo for quite a while doing non productive roles. No doubt she'll not pass anything up that is offered to her, she wants to reach fame, but at what price? She's and opportunist and that is not meant in a Positve way. If Holmes wants to project that she was used, well here's one for her that everyone already suspected when she announced she had a crush on Tom Cruise, and how she aggressively moved in with him, 80% of Tom's fans knew she was using Cruise. You know Karma is something one should never mess with especially if it's for "greed'. Their was an intent on Holmes part entering into a relationship with Tom Cruise, Lucky for her she had a child from him, that was her ticket to where she is now. No doubt Cruise will emerge from this, and will go on to be better as an actor. His beliefs are his, it has no bearing on anyone, for he has never done anything to maliciously hurt anyone, and has always been an honorable man and artist. He has made his mistakes, and continues to be responsible as a good father to his three children. I wish for him continued success, Happiness, and may he eventually find someone who will respect his work as an actor, for their work is not easy, they don't have a set schedule, and this is their living. I feel as a good provider to his family, this is part of the benefits, that go with a marriage, for financial is part of the security in any relationship. Holmes has traveled beyond what she would normally do if she was single or with anyone else, her name allows her to walk into any place and be serviced, she has also been privy to many top designers, so in essence Cruise gave her more than she could ever do for herself. It appears she doesn't feel that way, with her arrogance in all that she does.

      crush? noooooooooo he went full speed to get her. he is very agressive when he wants something, he was not a lump head when he pursued her..he became controlling after the marriage so she had to let him go.

    Judging from the little temper tantrum, I'd say Carol Marks is the one really spoiled. You must be some old bird who's giney has been tingling for Cruise since you saw him in his tighty whities 30yrs ago. Calm down & take a valium or something chick. Why get so worked up over people who wouldnt take the time to scrape you off the bottom of their shoe? Oh, & get a man, but keep your mouth shut when with him (unless you're on your knees) if you want to keep him.

      You are so right! How can anyone think that the inexperienced senator from Illinois has done our country any good? First thing to do to get out of a hole? Stop digging! The housing bubble started with Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, & ACORN. Banks were forced to make home loans to people who could not pay them back. Our best solution to this mess is to get rid of Obama before he drives us over the cliff!

    karma, karma, karma... what did he think, he screws over 2 woman, maybe even more, and especially his last wife and he thinks G-d is sleeping. get real.... money, fame and other superficialities can really screw your head up....he's in la la land if he thinks he can get away with his past misdeeds to other woman, and who knows to others we don't even know about... he totally got what he deserves and the party might not be over yet. Katie Holmes was just a pawn for doling it out. wake up Tom.

      Tom let her go because Katie promised not to tell about his g@y exploits and all the weirdness that goes on in the church of Scientology. He is a closet freak and knows it will kill his career.

    This woman, Katie Holmes is REALLY a piece of work. First Katie Holmes breaks-up a family and up roots Suri, their daughter, from the only life and home Suri has ever known, and taken away from her Daddy . . . . Now Katie and Suri are in New York....for what ? ? What was the big deal for Katie ? Katie had MILLIONS & MILLIONS, to spend and at least, Suri was in a WHOLE family, (which is very important for a child)......... Still now, Katie has MILLIONS, and now, Katie has decided, she wants to go back to being and actress. Which Katie was NEVER good at, anyway, Katie CAN'T act !! Its all about WHAT KATIE WANTS..WANTS..WANTS......who is REALLY spoiled ???

      carol marks: The real question is 'who here is misogynistic?' Clearly, it's you.

      God forbid a woman wants to go back to having a job or getting out of marriage that makes her unhappy. Money doesn't translate into happiness.

    My take, I think she signed a 5 year prenup. If she made it to the 5 year mark, she got a specific amount, anything less was less money. I wish her luck in the future, but I'm sure she is going to be just fine.

      I think at the time of getting the cast together for Dark Knight, Katie was still under the controlling influence, and not able to make too many of her own decisions.
