He's just that into you: Justin Long is Romeo to Evan Rachel Wood's Juliet

Posted by on Wed, Mar 18, 2009 at 3:25 PM

Theatre in the Park announced today that Justin Long, an actor seen in such titles as He's Just Not That Into You, Galaxy Quest, Live Free or Die Hard and the Peyton Reed-directed The Break-Up, will play her BF from the Montague side of the tracks in the Theatre's May production of Romeo and Juliet.

The production will run for five performances from May 15-17, at the TIP space in Pullen Park. Tickets are on sale for $50. 

Wood, whose star will continue to rise when her next film, Woody Allen's Whatever Works, opens the Tribeca Film Festival in April, is a Raleigh native and daughter of Ira David Wood III, artistic director of TIP. She received universal raves for her role in Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, and she's also reputed to be playing Mary Jane in a Broadway adaptation of Spider-Man, which will be directed by Julie Taymor, who brought The Lion King to the stage and also directed Wood in Across the Universe. Music will be by Bono and The Edge.

In this TV Guide red carpet interview on Oscar Night, Wood discusses the Spidey project and also gives a shout-out to the folks back home at Theatre in the Park.
