Bryan Cranston Feels Weird About Fame

25th Annual Producers Guild Awards

Huge fan o Bryan Cranston over here, but I’m guessing I’m one of many.

The 59-year-old TV veteran talked to THR about life after Breaking Bad, his upcoming role as LBJ in HBO’s All the Way, and his experience playing blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in the Toronto-debuting Trumbo. And, as Cranston is wont to do, it’s funny and interesting as hell.  Here’s the interesting part about fame:

You’ve been out of Breaking Bad for a while now. How do you make your career decisions these days? I tell my agency [UTA], “Do the best you can.” They say, “We want to tell you about the deal.” I say, “Are you happy?” “I think we could get a little more.” “All right, try.” I don’t want to appear smug, but I don’t need a job. I’ve been really poor, foreclose-on-your-house poor. And I’ve been rich. Rich is better. But I’m just now starting to get used to the hour of fame. I haven’t been able to let the dust settle yet.

Do you like your “hour of fame”? Being [famous] is almost like being a pregnant woman. People think they can just put their hand on your belly and tell you, “Oh, you’re going to have a boy!” It’s like having a complete stranger fondling you. And they have this sensibility where they feel comfortable coming up to you and saying, “You know that thing you did? I didn’t like that movie.”

Oh yeah, it happens all the time. They’re not in the storytelling world, but they hear buzzwords. So they’ll go, “I didn’t like your character’s arc.” But I’m open to all of it. The only failure in art is when you move someone to no emotion whatsoever. I’d rather have people fiercely angry with me so long as they’re moved to some emotion. Even if the emotion was off-target — even if I was trying to move the audience one place and they go another. You missed, but at least they felt something.

Yeah, So This Happened…..

Yeah, So This Happened.....

When Julia Louis-Dreyfus heard her name being called out as the winner of the Best Actress in a Comedy, she began to make her way to the stage. Funnily enough, she got stopped on the way by “Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston — who opted to play tonsil hockey with the “Veep” star. Page Six reports:

Prior to the steamy moment, Dreyfus and Cranston had performed a bit on stage in which she pretended not to remember that he had once appeared on “Seinfeld” as a romantic interest for her character.

That kiss cleared up the confusion.

“Um, yeah, he was on ‘Seinfeld,’ yeah,” Dreyfus dead-panned before accepting the award.

Too funny!

Bryan Cranston is Writing a Memoir

25th Annual Producers Guild Awards

My husband doesn’t love to read, but I think I have found a book that he will make an exception for.  Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, is penning a memoir about his life and work as an actor.  The book will be released in the Fall of 2015.

According to Rolling Stone:

In a press release, the Emmy winning actor said he would, “tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad.” As for his writing chops, Cranston has a couple of screenwriting credits to his name, but Scribner publisher Nan Graham added that Cranston, “writes the way he acts – with fierce commitment, intelligence and humor.”

Cranston, who won four Emmys and one Golden Globe for his role in Breaking Bad, is currently performing on Broadway in All the Way.  He is playing the role of Lyndon B. Johnson.   Cranston will be making his next big-screen appearance in the Godzilla remake coming out next month.
