Judy Greer Of 'Arrested Development' To Make Broadway Debut Alongside Katie Holmes In 'Dead Accounts'

It's been a big year for Judy Greer. The comedic actress is not just returning with the rest of the cast to "Arrested Development," but she's set to make her Broadway debut alongside Katie Holmes in the comedy "Dead Accounts."

Described as "the hilarious story of a brother, a sister and the 27 million dollar [sic] secret that turns their surprise family reunion upside down," "Dead Accounts also features Broadway veteran Norbert Leo Butz, who has won Tony Awards for the Broadway adaptations of "Catch Me If You Can" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."

Greer, whose cast bio on the "Dead Accounts" website bills her as "one of the most prolific actresses of her time," will be portraying Jenny in the comedic play.

The actress is not the only cast member with star power. Katie Holmes, who just divorced husband Tom Cruise, is cast as Lorna in "Dead Accounts." Holmes, 33, made her debut on the Great White Way with "All My Sons" in 2008.

"Dead Accounts" is being directed by famed Broadway director Jack O'Brien, whose credits include "Catch Me If You Can," "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," "Hairspray," "Porgy and Bess," and "Henry IV."

The play was written by Theresa Rebeck, creator of the television show "Smash" on NBC and Pulizter Finalist for writing "Omnium Gatherum."

Fans of Broadway welcomed the news that Greer would be making her Broadway debut.

"Judy Greer making her Broadway Debut ! You go girl !" tweeted @AwesomeRob.

"Whoo-hoo! Judy Greer's in @DeadAcctsBway! That's the kind of casting that gets me excited. (Maybe I can get Jack O'Brien to introduce me)," wrote theater pundit Howard Sherman.

But it's the return of "Arrested Development" that has fans salivating. The critically acclaimed show, which had been axed by Fox in 2006, is being brought back to life by Netflix. The show is set to air sometime next year. Greer plays Kitty Sanchez on the cult hit.

Not only is Greer being kept busy with her upcoming Broadway Door and "Arrested Development," but the actress also tweeted she wrapped up her 40th film, a remake of the horror classic "Carrie," late last month.
