First Look! Scarlett In 'Cat On a Hot Tin Roof'

Tony winner Scarlett Johansson is back on Broadway, and this time she's taking on the super sexy role of Maggie Pollitt in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

The role was made famous by the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor in the 1958 film version (which also starred Paul Newman), but the part of Maggie has also been played by Jessica Lange, Kathleen Turner, Ashley Judd, and Anika Noni Rose. 

Playing Maggie is a far cry from Johansson's last on-stage role as a virginal teenager in Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, a part that won her the Tony. "I never thought I would do another play after View," she told the New York Times. "I was just so tired. I thought I was just going to become an organic farmer."
