    "Boardwalk Empire" star Michael Shannon will be back on the boards this spring.

    Michael Shannon (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”) has joined the cast of the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of Eugene O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.”

    Shannon will play James Jr, the eldest son of the Tyrone family which already includes Jessica Lange (Mary), Gabriel Byrne (James) and John Gallagher Jr. (Edmund).

    Previews for the limited engagement production will begin March 31, 2016, with an April 19 opening at the American Airlines Theatre.

    The show marks Shannon’s return to Broadway after making his debut in 2012’s “Grace” alongside Paul Rudd. He was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in 2008’s “Revolutionary Road.”
