Just like Henry Winkler with Fonzie, and David Schwimmer with Ross, Bryan Cranston will always be known for his career-defining character, Walter White. Despite being forever tied to the Breaking Bad role, though, Cranston still manages to seamlessly blend into a variety of different projects, without ever calling attention to himself. This is a rare talent for an actor who made one of his characters a household name. When we hear, "a Bryan Cranston movie," we could be seeing anything: a highbrow biopic, a whimsical stop-motion film, an action-thriller, or a goofy comedy with a scene involving a vat of moose urine. Though Bryan Cranston may always be Walt in our hearts, we’re grateful that he really is so much more.
