Cool Hand Luke names Lee Boardman and Lisa Eichhorn in the cast

The cast for Cool Hand Luke has been announced, with former Coronation Street star Lee Boardman and Golden Globe nominee Lisa Eichhorn taking two of the lead roles.

Boardman, who previously played Jez Quigley on Weatherfield's cobbled streets, will appear as convict Dragline, with Eichhorn playing Luke's mother in the production when it opens at the Aldwych theatre in front of those booking London hotels on Friday September 23rd.

Joining the pair are Marc Warren (Luke), who is known for his TV roles in Hustle, Mad Dogs and Mutual Friends, Rob Falconer, Joshua McCord, Nathan Osgood and Kenneth Jay.

The play tells the story of a World War II veteran who has turned into a rebel and looks to survive in the only way he knows how.

Cool Hand Luke was also released as a film in 1967 and starred movie legend Paul Newman, who played the title role, George Kennedy and JD Cannon.
