NEW YORK (AP) - Al Pacino is getting some help in "Glengarry Glen Ross" on Broadway this fall _ from Bobby Cannevale.

Producers of the David Mamet revival said Thursday that Cannavale will play Richard "Ricky" Roma, the part Pacino played in a 1992 film version of the same play.

Previews will start on Oct. 16 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and an opening night has been set for Nov. 11.

Cannavale, who has appeared on "Nurse Jackie" and won an Emmy in "Will & Grace," was last on Broadway playing a recovering addict opposite Chris Rock in the Tony-nominated play "The Motherf---- With the Hat."

The actor is also slated to star in a new production of Clifford Odets' "The Big Knife." It begins previews on March 22 at the American Airlines Theatre.
