‘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.

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.

Dick, and brought to life by none other than Battlestar Galactica alum Ron Moore.

by Britt Hayes April 20, 2016 @ 7:12 PM
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.

Bob Odenkirk is Tired of Your Walter White on ‘Better Call Saul’ Questions

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.

‘Trumbo’ Review: Bryan Cranston Plays the Blacklisted Screenwriter In This Gaudy Pick-cha

When the first trailer for Jay Roach’s Trumbo dropped this past summer, I thought I was getting a brief peek at what would become one of fall’s most buzzed about biopics and with an Oscar-worthy leading role. After all, it stars Bryan Cranston as Dalton Trumbo, the politically undeterred Hollywood screenwriter blacklisted for his Communist beliefs during the Red Scare. A movie about movies with a great cast, what could go wrong? But that’s just the thing with biopics, especially ones about Hollywood, which face the risk of mistaking homage for pastiche.
