VIDEO: ALL THE WAY's Bryan Cranston Shares Advice from Audra McDonald on 'Letterman'
Bryan Cranston stopped by last night's Late Show with David Letterman and spoke about maintaining his voice throughout the grueling eight shows a week schedule of his new Broadway play All the Way, in which he portrays President Lyndon B. Johnson.
"It's a three-hour play," he explained, "so I talked to a wonderful actor, Audra McDonald, she did Porgy and Bess, and she told me that her Ear, Nose and Throat said, 'shut down on Mondays, don't say anything on Mondays.' So I started Silent Mondays!"
