Tonys 2012: 'Columnist' Star John Lithgow on (Not) Winning

On the red carpet at Sunday's Tony Awards, John Lithgow predicted he would lose in the best play category category to one of his rivals: Philip Seymour Hoffman; James Earl Jones; Frank Langella or James Corden.

(Corden, the relative newcomer from One Man, Two Guvnors, won the trophy in an upset victory over Hoffman.)

But Lithgow, who already has a Tony under his belt, was pleasantly resigned to his fate, raving about his role as a '60s-era political journalist in The Columnist and making plans to do more Shakespeare in the future.
