Justin Long is heading to Broadway.

The actor will make his Broadway debut in the play, Seminar, written by Theresa Rebeck (Mauritis, Omnium, TV's Smash) and directed by Sam Gold (Look Back in Anger). He will join Jeff Goldblum in the production beginning April 3 for an eight-week engagement at the Golden Theatre.

Long plays Martin, taking over for Hamish Linklater whose final performance takes place April 1. It was previously announced that Goldblum would be replacing Alan Rickman in the role of Leonard.

Seminar centers on four aspiring novelists, who sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. Some thrive, while others flounder; friendships are made, while others are broken.

Best known for his film and television work, Long has starred in He's Just Not That Into You, Accepted, Going the Distance, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Galaxy Quest and roles on series Ed and New Girl.

Seminar is produced by Jeffrey Finn, Jill Furman, John N. Hart Jr., Patrick Milling Smith, Roy Furman, David Ian, David Mirvish, Amy Nauiokas and James Spry.

Additional replacement casting will be announced shortly.
