Bryan Cranston Reveals He Will Go Full-On Walter White When Meeting His Daughter's Boyfriends
Bryan Cranston will always be best-known for his show-stopping role as Walter White on Breaking Bad. In addition to that role giving him fame and countless awards, it also taught him a thing or two for his personal life. The actor, who played a school teacher-turned drug dealer on the hit show, recently sat down with Today's Willie Geist to talk about Breaking Bad, his family, and his new movie, Why Him? Bryan, who is dad to 23-year-old daughter Taylor with wife Robin Dearden, joked to Willie that he will definitely use some of Walter White's tactics when it comes to intimidating Taylor's boyfriends. "I think what I would do is have a barrel next to me with some chemicals handy," he joked. "Just let them see it, you know, like, 'Oh, it's real, son. I can dissolve your body in seconds.'" We can only hope he would end it with,

Here's another way to rank the Oscar acting nominees

Here's another way to rank the Oscar acting nominees
Which actors will take home the gold at this year's Oscars? While it's a nice thought that the winners in each category will ascend the steps of the Dolby Theatre based on merit alone, we all know that's not how it works in this silly town. Judging the quality of a specific performance relative to other performances is a highly subjective thing, and certainly subject to pre-existing biases. With that in mind, is it any less ridiculous to predict the winners in each category based on age, height, net worth and relationship status? I say it's not! Let's have some fun. Below, my rankings and predicted winners in each category based on totally irrelevant personal stats. (Note: All "net worth" numbers are based on 100% accurate Google search results.) Best Actress 5. Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn Height: 5'6" Age: 21 Net worth: $2.5 million Relationship status: Single? 4.

  • Pop2it
Bryan Cranston will never forget "Breaking Bad." Sure, it's the show that truly catapulted him to a new level of fame, but he's also gone ahead and had it permanently marked marked on his body just to make sure he remembers. It was revealed previously that Bryan got the signature "Br Ba" chemical logo from the show tattooed onto his right ring finger. He says the act surprised his wife.

The actor remembers breaking the news to his spouse, Robin Dearden, "'I got a tattoo', and she said, 'No, you didn't'," he tells Us Weekly. While Robin was shocked that Cranton got the ink, that doesn't mean she thought it was a bad idea. "She loved it because it's discreet," he says of the tiny tattoo. It also has special meaning for Cranton, who says, "When I catch a glimpse, it reminds me of this experience and I smile."

Bryan Cranston Builds Green Dream

Bryan Cranston Builds Green Dream
Once, on a JetBlue flight between Los Angeles and Boston, passengers dutifully handed over their in-flight trash to flight attendants holding large plastic bags stuffed with waste.

When Bryan Cranston was offered the chance to dump his trash like his fellow passengers, however, he paused, asking, “Where’s your recycling?”

“Oh, we don’t do that,” the flight attendant replied.

The thesp describes himself as being “stunned” in that moment. “How is that possible?” he asks.

The incident spurred the “Breaking Bad” star to pen a letter to JetBlue’s CEO, imploring the chief to execute a companywide policy change about recycling the endless plastic and paper waste created during flights.

Though a small incident, Cranston’s reaction to JetBlue’s recycling exemplifies the thesp’s proactive, eco-friendly paradigm. He says his green tendencies derive greatly from his parents, who grew up during the Depression.

“The idea of recycling was

SAG Awards 2013: Bryan Cranston finally wins for 'Breaking Bad'

Everyone assumed Damien Lewis would take home the Best Actor in a Drama award at the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Award -- even his rival nominee, Steve Buscemi. But the SAG committee decided to give the award to someone who has been shamefully under-appreciated for the past four years: Bryan Cranston.

This was Cranston's fourth nomination for his role of Walter White in "Breaking Bad," but his first win. Overlooking his chilling turn as White in 2012 would have been criminal, despite wonderful performances over the past year from Lewis in "Homeland," Buscemi in "Boardwalk Empire," Jon Hamm in "Mad Men" and Jeff Daniels in "The Newsroom." Cranston accepted the win with the humble sense of humor we've come to love from him.

"It is so good to be bad," he quipped in his acceptance speech. "I am so pleased and so honored to receive this award."

Cranston went on to thank AMC,

Bryan Cranston: 'I had to take my character from Mr Chips to Scarface'

Bryan Cranston was a jobbing actor for years… then came the role of a lifetime in Breaking Bad and three successive Emmy wins. Here he tells us how being TV's chemistry teacher/drug baron Walter White changed his life

There are some actors' names – Errol Flynn, Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp – which, even if they were not famous, would still evoke images of romance, danger, drama. Then there is Bryan Cranston. It's hard to conceive of a more prosaic appellation. It's almost perfectly anonymous. Authentic but dully inconspicuous, it's a background kind of name. A solid name for a solid character actor.

Which is what Cranston was for almost three decades. On film and on television, he was repeatedly to be found in supporting roles, slowly building a reputation as a reliable and flexible performer who was equally adept in comedy and drama. Always in employment, he would crop up in shows such as Baywatch,

Cranston Credits Pre-marriage Counselling For Happy Family Life

Cranston Credits Pre-marriage Counselling For Happy Family Life
Actor Bryan Cranston and his wife took marriage counselling sessions before they wed.

The former Malcolm in the Middle star is currently celebrating his 22nd wedding anniversary with actress Robin Dearden, and Cranston insists their pre-marriage chats with a therapist have been the secret to their successful partnership.

He explains, "I do believe in marriage counselling. In fact, my wife and I started going to a marriage counsellor when we were still dating.

"Men and women think so differently, and, instead of assuming what you're partner is saying, or letting it fester or something, you just let it out. I think, in all the times we've gone, we've become closer right after... We've had a great experience."
