Jude Law will play Shakespeare's melancholy Dane on Broadway this fall.

The 36-year-old British actor will star in "Hamlet," opening Oct. 6 at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York for a 12-week engagement. Previews begin Sept. 12.

The critically acclaimed production comes from London's Donmar Warehouse. Law will be joined by the rest of the British cast under the direction of Michael Grandage.

It will be Law's first Broadway appearance since 1995, when he appeared in "Indiscretions" with Kathleen Turner, Cynthia Nixon, Roger Rees and Eileen Atkins.
