More on Broadway for actor

Washington
Harrell
Littrell

Now that his children are grown, you can expect to see a lot more of Denzel Washington on Broadway.

The Tony- and Oscar-winning actor, who is set to portray Walter Lee Younger in Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play “A Raisin in the Sun,” is lately finding more time for theater work.

“Up until nine years ago, I hadn’t been here in 15 years, from 1990 until 2005. Basically, that was because of raising my kids, my wife and I,” Washington said Tuesday.

Shows renewed

Showtime is staying in business with its Sunday offerings, announcing renewals for “Shameless” and “House of Lies.”

That will bring the dysfunctional family of “Shameless” back for a fifth season, and the crack team of management consultants in “House of Lies” back for a fourth season, on the premium cable network. Each will consist of 12 episodes that will roll out in 2015.

Bassist arrested

Todd Harrell, a founding member and bassist for 3 Doors Down facing a vehicular homicide case in Tennessee, was arrested Tuesday night on a DUI charge in Mississippi, police said.

Harrell was found “slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle” by officers responding to a citizen’s call about an impaired driver, D’Iberville police Chief Wayne Payne said.

Harrell was charged with a second-offense DUI involving a substance other than alcohol, Payne said. Police got a court order to take a blood sample from him.

“We don’t know what the substance is at the time. We sent the sample on to the crime lab for testing,” Payne said.
