first_img All the Way How cool is it to be working with Bryan Cranston, who is at the height of fame right now— You don’t know that! He could get even more famous. [Laughs.] Michael McKean Show Closed This production ended its run on June 29, 2014 See McKean in All the Way, opening March 6 at the Neil Simon Theatre. Would you ever want to star in another Broadway musical? You really hit the ground running with Hairspray. Hairspray was a lot of fun to learn—but a year and a half later I was back with The Pajama Game and that was hard. I had two big spotlight dances but also all the choral dances and everything. Getting into that stuff, at the time I was 58, and it’s like, enough is enough. There are parts I’d love to play, but I don’t think it would be on Broadway. But you never know! This is your second political play on Broadway in a row—what about All the Way hooked you? I was in Ashland, Oregon—my daughter [Nell Geisslinger] is an actress up there—so we were up there seeing some shows, and this play about LBJ sounded interesting to me, it was called All the Way. The very next day, [producer] Jeffrey Richards called me and said, “Hey, I hear you’re up in Ashland, why don’t you see this play called All the Way?” I said, “Well, I already saw it!” So a couple of months went by and he called me again, and he said, “Well, we’re gonna do the play, and do you want to play Hoover?” After two political roles on Broadway, would you ever want to run for office? Never! Never! I can’t imagine a worse life. I have my own superpowers. I don’t need someone to elect me to have power over other people. It’s awful just to have your life turned upside down and shaken loose. It’s just crazy. I don’t need that House of Cards thing. I love watching, but I ain’t gonna be in it! Star Files Do you remember the incident? Yes, I was standing on the curb and that controversial yellow light came up and one woman decided she wanted to make a left at exactly the same moment that a guy thought he was gonna charge through the yellow light, and they collided and double-teamed me. I’d love for there to be a cautionary tale, but you can’t tell people not to stand on the corner and wait to cross, ‘cause that’s what you’re supposed to do! [Laughs.] Touché! How does having this superstar in the cast change the experience? I’m a big Breaking Bad fan, and the guy’s incredible, but it’s turned out to be more than that. He’s transformative. This is a guy who finds whatever there is to be found and he makes strong choices. He’s right on the money. Bryan’s star is very bright, but his LBJ is brighter. It’s active and it’s a real guy and he’s just doing a magnificent portrayal. Speaking for theater fans everywhere, why hasn’t Waiting For Guffman [which McKean contributed lyrics to] become a musical? Chris [Guest] and Eugene [Levy] looked at it—there are people who want to do Best in Show and Spinal Tap as musicals… The main problem, I think, in adapting any of these for the stage is these films were created improvisationally and because they were documentary-style, the viewer was essentially a character. I don’t think that works the same way on stage. Plus, Guffman’s got some great songs in it, but you can’t do a musical with only five songs. Related Shows This is a juicy role—how did you approach embodying J. Edgar Hoover? A lot of characters in this play, online, you can find them speaking extemporaneously, but you can’t find that with Hoover because he never did anything that wasn’t rigidly prepared. He was a stammerer when he was a kid, so I think his control of his image became very important to him. So I did some research on his life and tried to get a feel for what the guy is like inside. In this case, it’s a very simple action in this play, just to destroy Martin Luther King. He felt that King was a communist, and an organized black revolution could be the kind of trouble that he couldn’t address. He had a pretty good-sized ego and he thought he could defeat world communism. He was afraid of anything he couldn’t control. It’s so wonderful to see you back on Broadway after your accident—how are you feeling? Oh, I’m fine. I broke my leg, and I’m really lucky that that’s all that happened. I did some physical therapy in Los Angeles and I encountered people who are in much worse shape than me. I was up on the stage about six months after it happened, so I’m very lucky. View Comments Has it changed the way that you walk around the city? No. My wife, [actress Annette O’Toole] won’t use that corner now. If we’re walking together and we get to that corner, she says, “No, let’s go down and cross over here.” I say, “Well, the corner isn’t what hit me.” In over two decades on the Great White Way, Michael McKean had never missed a performance—but in 2012, on his way to perform in The Best Man on Broadway, the stage and screen star was struck by two cars, sending him to the hospital in critical condition. Now, the Laverne and Shirley, This Is Spinal Tap, Best in Show and SNL funnyman is back with a vengeance in a new dramatic role, playing FBI director J. Edgar Hoover opposite Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon B. Johnson in All the Way. Below, McKean chats with Broadway.com about returning to Broadway after his accident, sharing the stage with Walter White—err, Bryan Cranston—and his thoughts on a Best In Show musical.last_img read more

first_imgIt’s finally Friday, and we think you deserve a reward. No, not peanut butter cups—the Lessons of the Week, of course! Every Friday, Broadway.com recaps the craziest things we’ve learned in the last seven days. Ready to be shocked, amused and just a little bit angry? Great! Check out this week’s lessons below.Meryl Streep Steals Broadway RolesThe great and powerful Meryl has been cast in another film remake of a Broadway show—Master Class. We can’t wait to see her Streep it up as Maria Callas, but we’re hurt she hasn’t appeared on actual Broadway in almost 40 years. What are you afraid of, M? Jazz shoes? Tiny dressing rooms? The occasional roach? What?This Xmas, Give the Gift of Idina MenzelFa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la moo. Yep, If/Then leading lady Idina Menzel has announced that she’s recording a Christmas album. But there’s one catch: She’s Jewish. Hey, works for us! We’ll keep it right next to our other favorite, the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John holiday album. Ooh-ooh-ooh, honey.Vampires Will Suck in a Musical (Again)First there was Dance of the Vampires. Then Dracula. Then Lestat. But alas, every vampire musical thus far has been a major flop. Will the in-the-works musical adaptation of True Blood be the exception to the rule? Hey, as long as it has sexy vampires ripping their shirts off and biting people’s necks, we’re there.Wait, Lea Michele Has More to Say!Glee star Lea Michele’s new memoir Brunette Ambition taught us tons of useful info, like how to make gluten-free pizza with a fried egg on top. But the Broadway babe has so much more material, she’s writing a sequel. Maybe she’ll remember to thank her Glee mama this time.What Happens on B’way Stays on B’wayWe’ve been betting our bottom dollar that the new musical remake of Honeymoon in Vegas would dance its way to New York next season—and luck be a lady, our dreams have came true! Bring on the singing Elvises, pole dancers and endless buffets! We’re ready.Nothing You Read About DanRad Is TrueThe Cripple of Inishmaan star Daniel Radcliffe wants to set a few things straight: He does not have a giant bronze statue of himself at home, he does not order beer from monks, and he is not getting married soon. That’s his evil twin, Raniel Dadcliffe. Get it right, people.B’way’s Beginning to Look Like HogwartsSpeaking of Raniel Dadcliffe, his pal Rupert Grint is riding his broomstick to New York to star in It’s Only a Play (with a ton of other big stars) next season. Wow, two Hogwarts students on Broadway in the same year? This is fantastic news! Your move, Hermione.You Can Now Step on Kristin ChenowethIf you’ve ever wanted to throw cigarette butts and used gum on your favorite Broadway stars, now is your chance! Kristin Chenoweth, Daniel Radcliffe (not to be confused with his evil twin), Jim Parsons, Paul Rudd and more are being inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Come on, boots! Start walking!Tupac Was a Theater GeekOn opening night of Holler If Ya Hear Me, Tupac’s brother Mopreme told us something else awesome about the late legend: He loved blasting Les Miz in the car. Damn, this is information we really could have used when we were getting beaten up in middle school.Lindsay Lohan Needs a Wake-Up CallThe screen star has announced she’s planning to make her West End debut in Speed-the-Plow, despite being a no-show on some important press opportunities. Lindsay, we know you’ll probably oversleep and miss some performances, but let’s make a deal, OK? As long as you don’t pull a Piven and get mercury poisoning, we’ll call this whole thing a success.

first_imgHave you heard the news? It’s Friday! To celebrate, we’re bringing you a recap of the weirdest, wildest and most WTF stuff that happened this week. From stories about Annaleigh Ashford’s messy house to a lavish secret passage to the wax museum, a lot of um…interesting stuff went down in the last seven days. Find out what we learned below!NPH Might Be Going to SpaceWell, he hasn’t confirmed he’s lifting off to the moon, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility according to our weekend poll. After hosting the Oscars, maybe the Tony and Emmy winner, host, director, producer and magician will pick up a few more of our suggestions for his bucket list. Our Claymation HIMYM idea is gold, NPH, gold!Cabaret Was Emma Stone’s Sex-EdThere’s a few risque moments in Cabaret that would make even grown adults squirm, but the new star of the Broadway revival announced she first saw Alan Cumming play the Emcee at the ripe old age of nine. Wow. And we thought we were cool because our parents let us watch Grease.Disney Needs an Ice-Cold DirectorThomas Schumacher of Disney Theatricals is really serious about this Frozen on Broadway thing—he’s got a concept, and now he’s shopping around for someone to helm the new musical adaptation. We’re sure he’ll probably spring for someone with actual stage credits, but we’d love to see the director of this masterpiece give it a go.Annaleigh Ashford Had a Hoarders HomeOn her Ask a Star video, the You Can’t Take It With You star revealed that her childhood home was just as cluttered as the Sycamore household’s—and completely packed with antiques and other old treasures. Wow, does your family also collect lots of snakes? Hang on, calling A&E. They’re gonna love this.Les Miz Needs a Cast Album. Now.We’re so beyond thrilled that Honeymoon in Vegas and Side Show have announced they’re recording cast albums before the musicals even begin previews. Meanwhile, if we want to listen to Ramin Karimloo’s gorgeous rendition of “Bring Him Home,” we’re forced to scrounge on YouTube. What gives, Miz?Michael C. Hall Has Great LegsHmm, we’re not exactly sure what Hedwig director Michael Mayer looks for in potential headliners, but there’s no doubt the role has one absolute requirement: Super sexy legs. NPH had ‘em, Andrew Rannells had ‘em, and now, does Michael C. Hall ever have ‘em. Pardon us while we sob on our Stairmaster.Club Cumming Is Coming to Your HouseGood news, lieblings—Cabaret star Alan Cumming could be making house calls! On the new episode of Show People, the Tony winner revealed that he’d love to take his exclusive dressing room party Club Cumming to your apartment for hire. Booze, Spice Girls tunes and vegan soup?! We’re in!On the Town Has Secret Wax AccessThe Lyric Theatre doesn’t have an after-hours nightclub like 54 Below, but what it lacks in posh bars, it makes up for in lavish secret passages to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Video blogger Alysha Umphress even gave us an all-access tour! No idea why anyone would ever need this, but if you do, you know where to find it.Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Got a New ProjectOK Lin, in honor of the great news that you and your wife Vanessa are expecting, we’re writing a rap: A little bundle of joy / oh boy, oh boy / time to stock up on lots of awesome toys / you’ve got a new off-Broadway show / and with a baby in tow / you’ll be the coolest freestyling dad we know! (We never said it would be a good rap.)B’way Stars Are as Screwed Up as YouWe learned so many lessons on the opening night of It’s Only a Play (especially that the revival feeds F. Murray Abraham’s “f*cking soul”), but according to Stockard Channing, the main takeaway is that stars are just as screwed up as the rest of us. Wait. Just as screwed up?! Excuse us. We beg to differ.
