Rian Johnson is honored that Angela Lansbury and Stephen Sondheim have agreed to be in Glass Onion

Though Angela Lansbury is perhaps best known as the star of “Murder, She Wrote,” the actress has had an enviable career that spanned decades (via IMDb). Whether you know her from films like The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Manchurian Candidate, or as the voice of Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast, Lansbury has been a welcome presence on every screen. Meanwhile, Stephen Sondheim is known for writing the lyrics to musicals like “West Side Story,” “Sweeney Todd,” and “Into The Woods,” effectively making the world of musical theater what it is today (via The New York Times). Working with Sondheim or Lansbury would be a dream come true for anyone who appreciates entertainment history. Thankfully, Glass Onion director Rian Johnson didn’t have to choose.

“You were so kind and so generous. We thought, my god, would any of them ever do it? We didn’t think they would. And they were both so cool,” Johnson told Deadline. “For both of them, apart from the honor of having them in the film, personally just being able to have 10 minutes with each of them to tell them what their work means to me was really special.”

While her guest appearances on Glass Onion are notable, it isn’t Lansbury and Sondheim’s first collaboration. The New York Times reports that one of Lansbury’s earliest stage roles was in the original production of Sondheim’s musical Anyone Can Whistle.
