Perhaps Cranston should start writing his second Tony speech now.
And now I’m ready for the inevitable HBO adaptation which will net him yet another Emmy nomination or film adaptation to net him another Oscar nomination. It’s really amazing how many more opportunities and accolades Cranston continues to get every year.
For other casting, I hope someone reads this thead: https://www.goldderby.com/forum/movies/network-remake-dream-cast/August 8, 2018 at 10:27 am #1202605490
Does the Network transfer mean that Michelle Dockery and the rest of the cast are also transferring over? I feel like maybe this would be a good opportunity for a more high-profile American actress to net a Tony nomination/win, although there’s nothing wrong with Dockery.August 8, 2018 at 12:27 pm #1202605573
Wow, didn’t realize Network would make it in for the fall. I have to see it, so I think I’m going to have to eat my To Kill a Mockingbird ticket for the fall trip in favor of this since it’s a limited run.
Although this was probably not made as public, I believe To Kill a Mockingbird is a limited run as well since tickets are currently on sale through March 17th, 2019.August 8, 2018 at 12:31 pm #1202605575
