Smokin’ red head Cynthia Nixon has signed on to do a British tv show! She will play the role of performing artist Penny Arcade in an ITV adaptation of “An Englishman in New York.” She will play opposite John Hurt who will be playing the role of Quentin Crisp.
Filming began in New York earlier this week. Since the show is centered in New York, Cynthia won’t have to leave the comforts of home to be on the show.
I’m not sure if the show will be seen in America but it will be on UK tv in 2009.
