|Bryan Cranston & Mr. Will-W.|
Although it took a bit of time to happen, Bryan Cranston is now hotter than ever after years of Television work since first making his Television debut on CHiPs back in 1982. Whether you know him from Malcolm in the Middle in which he starred as Hal, or more recently his three-time Emmy Award-winning work on Breaking Bad as terminally ill, drug-dealing Teacher Walter White, Cranston is officially an A-list Actor now with a string of highly-buzzed films due in the next year.
Drive, Contagion, Red Tails, John Carter of Mars, Rock of Ages and Larry Crowne are all major titles he will be seen in soon and above this, Cranston is now in Toronto working on Len Wiseman's Total Recall reboot. He stars as Vilos Cohaagen, the central Villain opposite Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel.
The barely-recognizable Actor/Director came out in a Hairpiece, Dress Shirt, Plaid Tie (as seen on David Letterman) and Vest during a Coffee Break to greet Fans during filming, revealing that he wrapped up work on the forthcoming season of Breaking Bad just three weeks ago. He now is slated to continue production until September in Toronto. He tells me he starred in a Disney production here years ago. When asked "Was it Ice Princess?", he joked back, "Yes, I starred in the leading role as Ice Princess...", drawing a few laughs. He was actually referring to 2001's 'Twas the Night.
He was relieved to take a heavy costume piece off his chest, inviting me to feel his back which actually was quite strong to the touch. The Baseball Fan was wonderfully kind spending a couple moments to sign Autographs and take Photos as well, despite Set Assistants being clear about tight time lines for the overnight shoot.
AMC's Breaking Bad Season Four premieres July 17, 2011 at 10:00 PM, while Larry Crowne which sees Cranston starring as Julia Roberts' Porn-addicted Husband Dean opens July 1, 2011.
