Bryan Cranston Interview – The Infiltrator – “I would not have accepted that role if the [Power Rangers] script wasn’t good”
Attention “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” creator Vince Gilligan: Bryan Cranston is ready and able to return as Walter White anytime you’re ready.
That’s what the Emmy winning actor known for playing the high school science teacher turned meth kingpin in the popular AMC series told journalists recently while promoting his new movie “The Infiltrator.”
Q: With all your awards and accolades, it appears that you’ve never forgotten where you came from. Did that help a little bit in your influence to come back as Zordon to the upcoming “Power Rangers” reboot?
Cranston: Yeah, actually. I did dubbing voices for “Power Rangers,” the series, 35 years ago. I can tell you that I would not have accepted that role if the script wasn’t good. There’s no loyalty to something that I did 35 years ago. They completely changed the tone. It is not the television series at all. It is a fully realized, updated, reimagined approach to telling this super hero story and I hadn’t really done a super hero thing so I was kind of intrigued. ”Oh, that sounds interesting. Let’s try it.”
