Bryan Cranston may have been sporting a full head of hair on the set of the new film "Get A Job" this week, but that won't last long. The actor is on a plane today to return to the Albuquerque location of his critically-acclaimed hit show, "Breaking Bad," and sounds thrilled to be getting back to work as Walter White.
During a conversation with a group of reporters visiting the set of the comedy, Cranston was asked about the difference between building a character like White over several years of a television show and on a film where he has significantly less running time to make an impression. "I'm so excited. I finish this Thursday night, my last day, and then I'm on a plane Friday morning. I buzz my head over the weekend. And then we're in front of the cameras on 'Breaking Bad' on Monday."
Rian Johnson, director of "Brick" and the upcoming science-fiction film "Looper," showed up at last week's WonderCon to discuss his new film, and confirmed there that he'd be returning for an episode of "Breaking Bad" this year, good news for those who loved his episode "The Fly". When this was mentioned to Cranston, he beamed. "Good. I'm glad he was set. We've been trying to get him to come back. He deserves to come back. He's not only a really terrific filmmaker… because that's not enough. You have to fit in. And as I get older and I'm leading casts, and producing a show and being part of that, it truly is 'How are they to be with for 13 or 14 hours a day?' I won't stand to be with someone who yells at me or yells at other people. Life's too short. I go to work because I love to work, but if someone's abusive, that's the end of that. I'm not into that."
With production resuming on "Breaking Bad" this coming Monday, fans don't have long to wait for the return of Walter White, and just based on Cranston's enthusiasm, it seems like they're planning to hit the ground running.
