Actor James Franco is set to make his Broadway debut in an upcoming adaptation of John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice And Men.

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes star will play intelligent field worker George Milton, who travels around California in search of work with his mentally disabled best friend, Lennie Small.

Franco announced the news during an appearance on U.S. late show The Colbert Report, but few other details were available as Wenn went to press.

The multi-talented hunk was originally slated to make his stage debut opposite Nicole Kidman in a 2011 production of Sweet Bird of Youth, but the project never came to fruition.

Of Mice and Men was last staged on Broadway in 1974, with James Earl Jones and Kevin Conway in the leading roles.
