Wolf Hunts Broadway Acclaim

Scott Wolf will be working hard this summer. The “Party of Five” heartthrob is taking over the starring role in Broadway’s “Side Man.” Its producers are hoping the one-two punch of tourist-friendly Wolf and a Tony nomination as Best Play will boost the show’s sagging box office. “I know they’re hoping I’ll bring in people who might know me from television,” Wolf told the New York Post. “I hope I will.” For Wolf, the chance to star in “Side Man” means facing New York’s notoriously tough drama critics. But he insists, “I needed a break from Hollywood . . . I’m not one to bash Hollywood — it’s been good to me, certainly — but there is a part of me that can get too comfortable doing television. ‘Party of Five’ is a good show, well-written and contemporary. But let’s be honest, it’s not ‘Hamlet.'”
