Bryan Cranston to Get Mad as Hell, Not Take It Anymore for Stage Revival of ‘Network’
Bryan Cranston to Get Mad as Hell, Not Take It Anymore for Stage Revival of ‘Network’
Public opinion has swayed back and forth on Network in the decades since its release in 1976. To its many fans, the film’s cynical take on the feedback loop between the media and the outraged public has remained freakishly prescient, all but predicting the rise of the frothy-mouthed ravings that now cover the internet. To others, Paddy Chayefsky’s script went too broad, denouncing vague evils while indulging in fits of self-righteousness that have presently trickled down to the lesser works of Aaron Sorkin. As with pretty much any movie, it comes down to a matter of taste, but there’s no denying that Sidney Lumet‘s film retains a troubling relevance in today’s cultural and political climate. We are indeed mad as hell, and so long as the option exists, we’d prefer to not take it anymore.

That didn’t prevent a few people from raising their eyebrows when it was announced that Cranston would be joining the cast of the new Power Rangers reboot as their leader and mentor Zordon. Sure, we all know that Cranston got his start as a Power Rangers voice actor back in the day, but is he really so loyal as to work on a new live-action movie when he could be out there, winning Oscars or lighting up Broadway

Bryan Cranston Still Wants to Play ‘X-Men’ Villain Mr. Sinister
Every comic book studio has the thing they do that frustrates fans. Marvel refuses to give the Black Widow her own spin-off movie; the DC Cinematic Universe keeps selling us on a version of Superman that breaks necks and gets freaky in bathtubs; 20th Century Fox casts incredible actors and buries them beneath layers of makeup and prosthetics. The last one is particularly frustrating when a great actor all-but shouts that he’s cool with hours in the makeup trailer and they still don’t seem to have a place for him.

In news to be filed under “Sure, okay,” Bryan Cranston has some interesting things to say about what we can expect from that new Power Rangers movie reboot — mostly that it’s “unrecognizable,” except not, and that it’s comparable to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, except also kind of not.
