You may consider the following great news... or you may not. Writer Max Borenstein, the man responsible for killing off Bryan Cranston and for keeping the titular monster hidden for most of the recent "Godzilla" tentpole, is back for more foggy, hidden-in-darkness, mayhem. Deadline reports that the writer has been tapped to pen "Godzilla 2," which amounts to a show of confidence from producers Legendary Pictures. Borenstein also penned the company's upcoming King Kong prequel "Skull Island," so clearly they think he's got blockbuster chops. And while many complained about the lack of Godzilla in "Godzilla," Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah are promised to appear in the sequel. "Godzilla 2" arrives on June 8, 2018. »

What would be Bryan Cranston's greatest acting challenge? A one-man show dramatizing baseball's postseason, of course. The Breaking Bad actor fronts a short for the 2014 Major League Baseball playoffs, which will air on TBS. The video, released on Tuesday, shows Cranston as he tackles a fake stage show, set on a makeshift baseball diamond. "I sunk a lot of money into this, but you never know when inspiration will hit you," he says while watching a clip of Bugs Bunny throwing a pitch and hitting a homerun. "Any actor that tells you he's not inspired by Bugs

Godzilla Blu-ray Godzilla has a long and storied history on the big screen, and has been responsible for some memorable movie moments along with some dull ones. Gareth Edwards. 2014 Godzilla blockbuster is not without problems, but it mostly lands itself firmly in the former camp. After a compelling opening sequence, we get the story. Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is a member of the Us Navy and has a fancy title that basically means he.s good with explosives. Early on, he heads to Japan to get his dad, Joe (Bryan Cranston), out of trouble with the law after a trespassing charge. Instead, the two become embroiled in a mystery surrounding a giant winged creature known as the Muto and a second creature known as Godzilla, who also happen to be natural enemies. It.s basic, monster-oriented premise is highly entertaining, but Godzilla is not without problems. Ford.s an unlikeable hero, »
And you thought Bryan Cranston's Tony Award-winning performance as Lyndon Johnson in All the Way on Broadway was impressive! But it turns out that what the actor has really always wanted to do was a one-man show about...baseball? "Then it hit me: Why not dramatize the entire Mlb postseason," the Breaking Bad star muses in the long-form teaser he shot for TBS' upcoming coverage of the Mlb postseason, in which Cranston dons the uniform of nearly every team expected to make the playoffs (and some that won't, sorry Red Sox). Sure, he hit a few creative roadblocks along the way, Cranston recalls in the hilarious-yet-touching video, but then inspiration struck in the form of »
Bryan Cranston has traded his porkpie hat for a baseball hat in a new short meant to promote the upcoming baseball playoffs. The concept: Cranston is putting on a one-man show about baseball that's influenced by Bugs Bunny and involves throwing baseballs at the audience. It's funny fun times. If this play ever happens, he better say, "I am the one who knocks it out of the park." »

Bryan Cranston goes from “Breaking Bad” to bad baseball in a silly commercial for the Mlb on TBS. “I've been doing a lot of TV and movie work, but I felt it was time to get back to the basics by diving right into my great passion — baseball,” the Emmy-winning actor says in the video released Tuesday. Thus, his creative brainchild: dramatizing the greatest moments of the major league postseason in a (fake) one-man show. “It would be my greatest acting challenge,” he says.

Who’S It For? Those who like a slow build up, big screen excitement, and can overlook some ordinary humans since there is an extraordinary reptile.
Godzilla reminds us that we like to be teased. That is something most blockbusters have forgotten. I’m not saying one is always better than the other, but there is something pretty spectacular about sitting through Godzilla and wondering, worrying, and hoping that we’ll finally get the Godzilla action we paid for. »

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.
The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

With the final four episodes of Breaking Bad looming last fall, Vince Gilligan hinted, “A great many chickens will come home to roost for Walt.” And, sure enough, in “Ozymandias,” the third-to-last episode of AMC’s harrowing, Emmy-winning meth drama, many of said chickens knocked down the front door of his house and made themselves comfortable in his living room.
During that hour of punishing and mesmerizing television, Walt (Bryan Cranston) would lose much of his blood money and most of his family (except for his baby daughter, whom he kidnapped in a moment of desperation), the latter being the »

In today’s world of comic-book remakes, it’s rare that an actor gets to portray multiple characters within any given universe. It’s even more rare that an actor gets to take part in a story that hasn’t been told before. But Ben McKenzie has done both.
In 2011, McKenzie got the chance to voice an animated Bruce Wayne in Batman: Year One, and three years later, he’s playing a young James Gordon in Fox’s upcoming series, Gotham. And despite the fact that Gotham is a prequel and therefore telling a new story, McKenzie is very aware »

In some parallel universe somewhere, Harrison Ford isn't a big screen legend, Bryan Cranston is still known as the dad from "Malcolm in the Middle," Emily Browning is a household name, and Batman used to date Buffy. Casting for movies and TV shows can be a tricky business, but when the right performer is picked to play the right role, magic can occur. It's interesting to note however just how many of those magic combinations almost never existed, with many iconic roles nearly going to other stars (or potential stars) We've dug up eleven of the juiciest TV and film casting rumors from the recent years that never came true. See which stars almost played Batman, James Bond, Bella Swan, Neo, and more below: »

Godzilla is a 2014 American science fiction monster film directed by Gareth Edwards. It is a reboot of the Godzilla film franchise and retells the origins of Godzilla in contemporary times as a "terrifying force of nature". The film is set in the present day, fifteen years after the unearthing of two chrysalises in a mine in the Philippines. From the pods come two giant radiation-eating creatures, known as "MUTOs", which cause great damage in Japan, Hawaii and the western United States. Their awakening also stirs a much larger, destructive, ancient alpha predator known as "Godzilla", whose existence has been kept secret by the U.S. government since 1954. It stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, and Bryan Cranston. The screenplay is credited to Max Borenstein but includes contributions from David Callaham, David S. Goyer, Drew Pearce, and Frank Darabont. »
Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” reboot made a bazillion dollars (or something like that), so it’s gotta be pretty good, right? Apparently while it is admittedly pretty good, it’s not perfect, and the folks at Honest Trailers have a couple of bones (or is that MUTOs?) to pick with the Big G. Let’s see what those crazy kids have to say, shall we? (Obviously it goes without saying, right? Massive Spoilers here if you haven’t seen the movie yet.) I get the whole Bryan Cranston thing. And the whole “Wait, when is Godzilla showing up” thing. I don’t really count footage of his fins swimming around the ocean as an appearance, by the way. Plus, the MUTOs were kind of lame. Couldn’t Godzilla have fought cooler looking monsters? The whole Godzilla history was also really, well, stupid. Dude just shows up to fight after half a century? »
