NETWORK's Bryan Cranston Reveals His 'Acting Crush' and Talks Shakespeare in Fan Question Interview on Twitter

Bryan Cranston currently stars in Network, a new show that depicts a dystopian media landscape where opinion trumps fact.

Cranston answered fan questions on Twitter, hosted by the National Theatre's Twitter account. Cranston reveals his "acting crush," who he'd want to interview if he were a real news anchor, and more! Watch all of the videos in the Twitter Moment below:

Howard Beale, news anchorman, isn't pulling in the viewers. In his final broadcast he unravels live on screen. But when the ratings soar, the Network seize on their newfound populist prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV.

Hilarious and horrifying by turns, the iconic film Network by Paddy Chayefsky won four Academy Awards in 1976. Now, Lee Hall (Billy Elliot, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour) and director Ivo van Hove(Hedda Gabler) bring his masterwork to the stage for the first time, with Bryan Cranston(Breaking Bad) in the role of Howard Beale.

Network runs until March 24 at the National Theatre. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
