Close set for return to stage

Glenn Close is returning to theater after more than 15 years – and it won’t be in a musical.

“I am planning a play in the fall,” Close said in an interview Monday at the Sundance Film Festival, where she’s promoting the film “Low Down.”

The 66-year-old actress wouldn’t say what play she’s joining in advance of the official announcement.

“I’m not sure what the producer’s plan is. I think he might want more of a cast before,” Close said.

Raising money

The most interesting man in the world is helping a Vermont-based company raise money to fight cancer in dogs.

Jonathan Goldsmith is a Manchester resident made famous by his role in the Dos Equis beer commercials. But he’s also a dog lover hoping to raise funds for the Denver-based Morris Animal Foundation, which promotes veterinary research for companion animals, horses and wildlife.

Lohan plans film

Lindsay Lohan is attending her first Sundance Film Festival.

The 27-year-old came to the independent cinema showcase Monday to announce that she will produce and star in a film called “Inconceivable” that is set to start shooting in March.

She described the film as a psychological thriller about a woman trying to reclaim something she lost. No director or co-stars has been announced.

A crew from OWN, which is airing a reality series about Lohan, filmed the actress’s news conference. Reporters were told that if they asked personal questions, they would be escorted out.
