James Earl Jones to star in "Driving Miss Daisy"
SYDNEY (AP) — James Earl Jones and Angela Lansbury say despite their decades on the stage and screen, they're still thrilled by acting in their 80s.
The veteran actors were in Sydney on Monday to rehearse for their upcoming roles in the stage production of Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer-Prize winning play "Driving Miss Daisy." The production will tour throughout Australia starting next month.
Jones says being enthusiastic about what he does keeps him energetic even as he approaches his 82nd birthday this month. Lansbury says being on stage gives her a rush that can't be matched on the screen.
Both actors jumped at the chance to perform in "Driving Miss Daisy," which began as an off-Broadway play and inspired the Oscar-winning film starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.
