Jones, Redgrave Drive “Miss Daisy”

redgrave_jonesIt’s certainly deluxe casting: Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones in a Broadway revival of “Driving Miss Daisy.” But won’t he be a little old for the early scenes in Alfred Uhry’s play? When Morgan Freeman did the part off-Broadway (and then in the movie) in 1987 he was 50: he could play middle-aged and elderly. Jones is almost 80.
