“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston will visit Astoria tonight for a screening of his latest film.
Cranston, who is also known for his roles in “Malcolm in the Middle” and his appearances on “Seinfeld,” will attend the screening of “Trumbo” at the Museum of the Moving Image, 36-01 35th Ave., at 8 p.m.
“Trumbo” dramatizes the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whose career came crashing to a halt when he became a victim of the Hollywood blacklist in the late 1940s.
“‘Trumbo’ tells the story of the Oscar-winning writer’s war with the U.S. government and studio bosses over words and freedom, which entangled Hollywood icons from Hedda Hopper and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger,” according to a statement sent out by the museum.
Director Jay Roach will also attend the screening.
Tickets cost $30 and are already sold out. However, the museum is offering standby tickets and will attempt to get as many people as possible into the screening.
It is unlikely that Cranston will take questions from the audience after the screening, according to a spokeswoman for the museum.
