Phylicia Rashad, otherwise known as Clair Huxtable from “The Cosby Show,” made her debut in “August: Osage County” Tuesday night on Broadway. Rashad is playing “Violet Weston, the brittle, uncensored drug-abusing matriarch of an Oklahoma family,” according to the New York Times. Wait, isn’t the rest of the Weston family white? As a result of some “nontraditional casting, Ms. Rashad inherits a white stage family of three daughters, a husband, a sister and other relatives.” Well, if anyone can pull that off, we bet it’s Phylicia.

Lately, it seems like lots of actors have been making their way from Hollywood to Broadway. Here are some of our favorites who’ve given the stage a shot.
