Heather Graham has reportedly left her role in a play to focus on her film Half Magic, weeks before it begins.

Days after she took part in promoting Neil LaBute's new play The Money Shot, the 44-year-old actress was forced to give up her first New York stage appearance since 2003 when the movie got the green light, reported Deadline.

The Hangover and Boogie Nights star was to play a glamorous Hollywood star desperate to make a successful comeback in The Money Shot, which is slated to begin performances on September 4 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in Greenwich Village. The official opening takes place on September 22 with a limited run through to October 12.

But Heather will now focus on Half Magic, which she wrote and will direct and star in opposite Josh Lucas.

The comedy, which would also mark her debut as a director, follows a woman who wants a nice guy and great sex in the same package.

A replacement for Heather's role in The Money Shot has yet to be announced.

If you're looking for work, you could find it at a government agency, university or hospital. Being employed by a big bureaucracy will have unexpected benefits.More
