Debra Winger will take the place of Laurie Metcalf in the Broadway cast of David Mamet's upcoming play "The Anarchist," alongside Patti LuPone.
Metcalf withdrew after a scheduling conflict.
Winger's profile has risen in recent years, after she took a self-imposed six-year hiatus from Hollywood. She's made occasional appearances on television, including a 2010 turn on "Law & Order," HBO's "In Treatment" and an onscreen comeback with Jonathan Demme's 2008 feature, "Rachel Getting Married." Winger is also scheduled to appear in this summer's romantic comedy"Lola Versus," which stars Greta Gerwig.
