Whose Star Will Shine Bright on the Big Stage?

Prospects: Law, who as a newcomer in 1995 earned a Tony nomination and a Theatre World Award in Broadway's Indiscretions, "is a real actor with wonderful stage presence," says Musto. "This will be both a media event and a credible theatrical experience. And there's always an appetite for a new (Hamlet)."

Josh Hartnett

Project: The film idol steps into Tom Cruise's shoes in a new London stage adaptation of the 1988 film "Rain Man", in which a self-absorbed guy played by Cruise takes a cross-country trip with his mentally challenged brother, played by Dustin Hoffman. The show opens Aug. 28.'

Prospects: Hartnett, 30, is "a dreamy matinee idol, but I don't think this is the project that will prove he's the new Olivier," Musto says. "He brings a little cachet, though — and on a scale of Tom Cruise adaptations, I'd rather see this than "Legend" or "Days of Thunder"."
