Jeff Goldblum said he is "grateful and thrilled" to return to the London stage
Jeff Goldblum is to star in the Old Vic's first West End play, Neil Simon's The Prisoner of Second Avenue.
The play will open at the Vaudeville Theatre on 13 July, while the Old Vic itself is being used for Sam Mendes' Bridge Project.
Simon's black comedy about a couple in New York opened on Broadway in 1971.
The play marks a return to the London stage for Goldblum, who last appeared alongside Kevin Spacey in an Old Vic production of Speed-the-Plow in 2008.
Jeff Goldblum, who is friends with Spacey, said: "I'm so grateful and thrilled about being back in London on the stage. My recent experience at The Old Vic was the best time I've ever had."
The play is being directed by Terry Johnson, a multi-award winning playwright and director.
Goldblum will play Mel, who is made redundant and has a nervous breakdown.
Sam Mendes is returning to the Old Vic for the second year of The Bridge Project that will run from 12 Jun until 21 Aug.
Mendes will direct his theatre group of British and American actors in two Shakespeare plays, As You Like It and The Tempest.
