Bryan Cranston Reveals What Makes Him 'Mad as Hell' on 'The Late Show'!

Bryan Cranston appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday (December 10) and spoke up about what makes him “mad as hell.”

The 62-year-old actor, who is currently starring in a stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning 1976 film Network, described how prevalent the script from screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky is today after 40 years.

“It is something that brings you back to the 1970s and ships you back into 2018 quickly,” Bryan expressed. “So a lot of things that we discuss, you know, in the show about being addicted to whatever the modern technology is at the time… or how about ‘fake news,’ that’s an element we deal with. And the manipulation of audiences by having a news outlet having an agenda of what their audience [listens] to. It’s really, very prescient from what he was writing.”

Bryan then revealed that the line “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore” made famous by Peter Finch, who went on to win the Oscar, wasn’t actually the line as written by Paddy. In fact, it was originally, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

“I think what makes me angry is people accepting duplicity and the diminishment of integrity and lack of accountability that we’re finding now in our society,” Bryan added when Stephen asked about what makes him “mad as hell.”
