Josh Radnor’s follow-up to “HappyThankYouMorePlease” — which also stars Elizabeth Olsen — centers on a 35-year-old yearning for a college lifestyle.

Allison Janney is heading back to school.

The actress, best known for her work on The West Wing, has joined the cast of Liberal Arts, Josh Radnor’s follow-up to HappyThankYouMorePlease. Radnor is starring in the pic with Elizabeth Olsen.

The movie has been casting up ahead of its summer start in Ohio with Richard Jenkins and Elizabeth Reaser among those already on board.

Janney will play a cold English professor in the film, which centers on a 35 year-old (Radnor) still yearning for the life of a college student but who must come to terms with his age and responsibilities.

In a nice bit of homecoming, the scenes on campus will be filmed at Allison’s alma mater, Kenyon College, which Radnor attended as well. Janey got her acting start at Kenyon when as a freshman she auditioned for a play Paul Newman was directing and got the part. At the suggestion of Newman and his wife Joann Woodward, she studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York and went on to make her Broadway debut in Noel Coward’s Present Laughter. Her performance earned her the Outer Critics Circle Award and Clarence Derwent Award.

Opening night of the World Science Festival in New York is going to feature a more glittering lineup of stars than most Broadway shows. Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Allison Janney, Liev Schreiber, David Morse and Bill Camp are among the actors coming together on June 1 at Alice Tully Hall to participate in a reading of a new play written by Alan Alda about the scientist Marie Curie.

Mr. Alda, who has written five screenplays and a carton-full of television scripts, said on Monday that “Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie,” is his first attempt at playwriting. The idea struck him about three years ago when he was planning to organize a reading of excerpts from Curie’s letters for the World Science Festival. “Then I found out her letters were all still radioactive and I switched to Albert Einstein,” said Mr. Alda, who has a passion for science. “But I love Marie Curie and I think her story is so important and dramatic, I wanted to explore it and write a play about it.”

Its title is a wry reference to the beleaguered character played by Matthew Perry, but the real star of the NBC freshman sitcom “Mr. Sunshine” is the indomitable Allison Janney, seated on the Victorian sofa, above right. As the diva-fierce owner of a San Diego sports arena, she takes the role of Crystal Cohen well past over-the-top. Cohen’s home, above, echoes her quirkiness.

The residence was designed to appear “eccentric, verging on crazy,” set decorator Anne Ahrens wrote in an e-mail. “A bit like her personality. The look for her was based on Hollywood Regency mixed with the glamorous and outrageous look of Tony Duquette.”
