Hollywood stars line up to record bed time stories for audio series

Actors Colin Firth, Meg Ryan, Susan Sarandon, Naomi Watts and Kim Basinger are also among the host of celebrities taking part in the Audible.com releases, while Dustin Hoffman will tackle Jerzy Kosinski’s Being There, Jennifer Connolly will read Paul Bowles’ The Sheltering Sky, and Jackson will bring to life Chester Himes’ A Rage in Harlem.

The titles are due to be released early next year (12), reports TheWrap.com.

It won’t be Jackson’s first attempt at reading a bedtime story – he also narrated Go the F**k to Sleep, a book which pleads with children to fall asleep in calm but expletive-laden verses.
