Armie Hammer — one of the stars of “Call Me by Your Name,” the buzzy film that looks poised to make a run at the Oscars — has lined up his Broadway debut this summer in the play “Straight White Men.”

He and Tom Skerritt will lead the cast of the show, produced by Second Stage Theater. Hammer is Second Stage’s latest casting headturner following news earlier this year that Chris Evans would star in Second Stage’s production of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Lobby Hero.” That play inaugurates the New York nonprofit’s takeover of Broadway’s Hayes Theatre, where “Straight White Men” will play after “Lobby Hero.”

Written by Young Jean Lee, “Straight White Men” follows a family Christmas gathering at which a man and his three adult sons come face to face with issues of identity and privilege. The play won raves in a separate Off Broadway run in 2014 at the Public Theater. Anna D. Shapiro (“August: Osage County,” “Fish in the Dark”) directs the Broadway incarnation. [Source]

The Academy announced on Wednesday that it’s inviting 774 new members — a record-breaking number.

It marks the second year in a row that the institution has broken its own record; last year, it set a new high-water mark by inviting 683 new membersAdditionally, people of color make up 30% of the new class — a significant statistic following the #OscarsSoWhite protest that made waves in 2016. According to the Academy’s announcement, there has been a 331% increase of people of color invited to join the Academy from 2015-2017. The Academy has vowed to make its membership better reflect the world demographics, after many years of criticism that women, racial minorities and international artists were under-represented. As a result, the number of new-member invitations has risen steadily. [Source]
