It wasn't that long ago that Craig Bierko "felt like a dinosaur" creaking along in the fast-moving tech world. But a Twitter account, a Facebook account and a new Hulu web series, Leap Year, later, the actor is now ready to "punch my way into this online stratosphere." "I think web series are the new wave of entertainment," Bierko tells "What's happening in that world is kind of amazing and I think we're on the verge of something great."

Premiering Monday, the 10-episode weekly series, which revolves around five friends who try to start their own business after getting fired, is "a comic take on the world with everyone losing their job," Bierko says. He plays Andy Corvel, the "slightly demented" Richard Branson-type boss who administers the axings. Find out what drew him to the project, why he thinks Hollywood is playing catch-up to the World Wide Web and more.
