NEW YORK - Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter is hoping to rip up the stage when she stars off-Broadway in a new play by Hamish Linklater.

The Flea Theatre said Friday the actress from such films as "Broadcast News" and "Raising Arizona" will be in "The Vandal" from Jan. 18-Feb. 17.

The play will also star Zach Grenier and Noah Robbins. Jim Simpson will direct. The Flea says the new work is a play "about death and vandalism in Kingston, N.Y."

Hunter, who also starred in the TV series "Saving Grace," was last off-Broadway in "Impossible Marriage" in 1998 and played the "Mystery Guest Star" in "The Play What I Wrote" on Broadway in 2003.
