McGregor to star in Guys revival
Ewan McGregor
Ewan McGregor last appeared on the London stage in 1999
Actor Ewan McGregor is to make his West End musical debut in a new production of Guys And Dolls.

The revival of the 1950s show sees the Star Wars actor play the lead role of Sky Masterson, a chronic gambler who falls in love with a missionary.

McGregor sang and danced in the Oscar-winning film Moulin Rouge, but this will be his first stage singing role.

The show - directed by the Donmar Warehouse's Michael Grandage - will open in late spring.

A venue for the production is yet to be confirmed.

McGregor - whose last stage appearance was in Little Malcolm and His Struggle Against The Eunuchs in 1999 - signed up after Grandage agreed to put the musical back to a later date to accommodate his filming commitments.
