Clive Owen will star in a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Old Times” to kick off the Roundabout Theatre Company’s 50th anniversary season.

It will be Owen’s Broadway debut, though the English actor — known for roles in “Children of Men” and TV’s “The Knick” — has extensive stage experience in the U.K.

Owen starred in the world premiere production of Patrick Marber’s "Closer" at the Royal National Theater, as well as the play’s film adaptation, for which he won a Golden Globe and received an Oscar nomination.

Direction for "Old Times" will come from Douglas Hodge, who won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his role in 2010’s acclaimed revival of “La Cage aux Folles.”

"Old Times" will be Hodge’s Broadway directorial debut.

The Roundabout has a long relationship with Pinter. The company has put on 10 Pinter productions since 1971, including 1991’s “The Homecoming,” which marked the start of their first Broadway season.

Previews for “Old Times” begin on Sept. 17, with an Oct. 15 opening.
