Bryan Cranston is back at it with the drug business in ‘The Infiltrator,’ but this time he’s breaking good.
In news to be filed under “Sure, okay,” Bryan Cranston has some interesting things to say about what we can expect from that new Power Rangers movie reboot — mostly that it’s “unrecognizable,” except not, and that it’s comparable to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, except also kind of not. But really, who’s to say?
It’s not much of a stretch to say James Franco is every parent’s worst nightmare. Could you imagine your kid — hypothetical or actual — dating the self-proclaimed artist occasionally known as Semaj? That’s the gist of Why Him?, in which Franco plays an obnoxious, foul-mouthed, tattooed billionaire dating the daughter of Bryan Cranston’s doting dad. He’s not technically playing himself, but it’s a pretty believable nightmare scenario.
As well as Better Call Saul stands on its own from Breaking Bad, the fan in all of us can’t help picturing Bryan Cranston popping up as a pre-lung cancer Walter White. Cranston himself is no stranger to the possibility, but might instead return behind the camera, if not for one very specific hangup about the series.
Bryan Cranston has a pretty iconic noggin and booming deep voice. So it kind of makes sense that the ‘Breaking Bad’ star will play Zordon, the big floating holographic head in the new ‘Power Rangers’ movie.
Bryan Cranston became a superstar as drug kingpin Walter White on AMC’s Breaking Bad. Clearly one of the hooks of this summer’s The Infiltrator is the way it flips Cranston’s image on its ear; this time he play the federal agent who goes undercover to take down notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Do androids dream of Bryan Cranston? This is a very real question we’ll get to answer in the near future, as the former Breaking Bad star and all-around TV treasure Cranston has signed on to lead a new sci-fi anthology series based on the writings of Philip K. Dick, and brought to life by none other than Battlestar Galactica alum Ron Moore.
Bryan Cranston’s most famous role to date (and the one responsible for his late-blooming popularity) was that of Walter White, the unassuming teacher-turned-meth kingpin on AMC’s hit drama Breaking Bad. His latest role has him slipping the shoe on the other foot as real-life DEA agent Brian Mazur, who infiltrated Pablo Escobar’s drug empire to engineer one of the most famous drug busts of all time. The first trailer for aptly-titled The Infiltrator offers our first look at this new dramatic thriller, which puts Cranston back in full-on mustache-mode.
In addition to starring in ensemble comedies like Top Five and Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart has made a career out of playing one-half of an unlikely pairing. See also: Get Hard with Will Ferrell, The Wedding Ringer with Josh Gad, the Ride Along movies with Ice Cube and the upcoming action-comedy Central Intelligence with Dwayne Johnson. Hart will continue his streak of Odd Couple comedies with Bryan Cranston in the long-developing remake of the hit French film The Intouchables.
Prequels often afford the ability to trace history of fan-favorite characters, even if certain backstories are best-left unexplored. Case in point, Better Call Saul has lent plenty of depth to Bob Odenkirk’s erstwhile Jimmy McGill, though the actor himself wants fans to “stop hoping” that Bryan Cranston’s Walter White drops by for an appearance.
