Bryan Cranston, who rose to prominence with hit TV series Breaking Bad, says that he would agree to feature in the big-screen adaptation of the same series “in a second”. Last November, it was announced that a film on the hit drama series is underway with creator Vince Gilligan. Slashfilm further reported that the movie would be a sequel and will centre around Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman.
The AMC show, headlined by Cranston, was about the transformation of Walter White, a chemistry teacher, into a methamphetamine-making drug lord.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly Radio on SiriusXM, the actor also gave a shout-out to the series spin-off Better Call Saul, starring Bob Odenkirk in the lead.
“From a realistic standpoint, if I got called to do the movie or Better Call Saul which I don’t know would ever happen – I really don’t – I would do it in a second,” he said.
Cranston also called working on the show a life-changing experience.“My experience on Breaking Bad changed my life and my professional life. It gave me opportunities that would not have come,” he said.
The show ran for six seasons till 2013 and ended with White’s death. Over five seasons, the show clinched 16 Primetime Emmy Awards and 7 Golden Globes. It regularly features in the list of best television dramas ever made.
