PREVIEW: Alina Cho's exclusive interview with actors Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones on the Broadway show "The Best Man"

Imagine this: It's time for a U.S. presidential election. One candidate is a man with ethics, and the other candidate is a man who could best be described as unscrupulous. Is this 2012? Nope, it's 1960.

The Broadway show "The Best Man" was written by Gore Vidal and made it's original run in March 1960. More than five decades later and it seems the essentials in politics may not have changed that much.

In the latest Broadway run, the show features the legendary actors Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones. In an exclusive joint interview, CNN's Alina Cho talks with the actors about the show revival and their legacy.

See a preview of this exclusive interview above, and tune in for the full interview on "Early Start with Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin" Tuesday, April 24th at 5am Eastern.
