Bryan Cranston Will Play Bryan Cranston for James Franco’s ‘The Masterpiece’

by Emma Stefansky December 30, 2016 @ 6:20 PM
Say what you will about James Franco, you can’t deny he isn’t a prolific artist. With a metric ton of projects that are either ongoing or announced, Franco has enough work to keep him busy for the next half a century. And like any actor-director, he has his favored collaborators, and he’s just announced that Bryan Cranston will play a younger version of himself for their third collaboration together.

Wes Anderson popped back up last month with a charming holiday-appropriate commercial for H&M, his first new work since 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was neat, but a pale substitute for a new feature. Fortunately, Anderson fans (or, as we’re more commonly called, Wes Fan-dersons) can take solace that his next major effort is well on its way: Anderson resurfaced today with a three-minute video in which he introduces the cast and first snippet of footage from his upcoming Isle of Dogs, a stop-motion animated project that returns to the talking-animal precocity of Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox.

‘Why Him?’ Red-Band Trailer Touts Family, Christmastime Togetherness, Moose Testicles

by Charles Bramesco November 15, 2016 @ 10:22 AM
The entertainment industry has done Bryan Cranston dirty. His award-hoarding turn as mild-mannered meth kingpin Walt White on Breaking Bad should have cracked Hollywood wide open for him, with high-power producers lining up to cast him in the next big prestige release. But for every Trumbo (which earned Cranston an Oscar nomination, despite plenty of shortcomings), there is a Why Him?, and the soggy prosthetic moose scrotum that goes with it.

More ‘Breaking Bad’ Stars Returning for ‘Better Call Saul,’ Says Bryan Cranston

by Kevin Fitzpatrick October 21, 2016 @ 10:33 AM
The second season of AMC’s Better Call Saul put the devil in the details to slyly confirm one major Breaking Bad return, but how many should we expect for Season 3? At least one more, according to Bryan Cranston, but perhaps not who you’re thinking.

Bryan Cranston Still Wants to Play ‘X-Men’ Villain Mr. Sinister

by Matthew Monagle September 17, 2016 @ 12:33 PM
Every comic book studio has the thing they do that frustrates fans. Marvel refuses to give the Black Widow her own spin-off movie; the DC Cinematic Universe keeps selling us on a version of Superman that breaks necks and gets freaky in bathtubs; 20th Century Fox casts incredible actors and buries them beneath layers of makeup and prosthetics. The last one is particularly frustrating when a great actor all-but shouts that he’s cool with hours in the makeup trailer and they still don’t seem to have a place for him.

Richard Linklater’s follow-up to Everybody Wants Some is another sequel of sorts, but in an intriguing twist, it’s not connected to one of his own films. Instead, the Boyhood director has been developing a sequel to The Last Detail, the classic 1973 film starring Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid. And now we have a few more reasons to get excited for Linklater’s latest: Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne.

Bryan Cranston Says the New ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Is Like ‘The Dark Knight’

by Britt Hayes July 6, 2016 @ 12:12 PM
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?

‘Why Him?’ Red and Green Band Trailers: James Franco Is Bryan Cranston’s Worst Nightmare

by Britt Hayes June 30, 2016 @ 11:26 AM
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.
