Bryan Cranston has changed his anti-Trump stance after Donald Trump was voted the next U.S. President, according to the Hindustan Times. The Breaking Bad actor may do a great job of playing a chemistry teacher and an excellent meth cook, but he apparently doesn’t keep his promises.
The U.S. presidential campaign was a long, exhausting, and ridiculous odyssey. But on Tuesday it came to an end when Americans voted for Trump. It was a surprising victory, and many U.S. celebrities, including Bryan Cranston, Katy Perry, and Miley Cyrus, have been die-hard Hillary Clinton supporters. But not all of them are sticking to their guns.

Trump and Clinton divided the U.S. into two camps. And some people were so anti-Trump that they even promised to leave the country if Trump was elected president. Bryan Cranston and Cyrus were among those who promised to move to another country.
But now that Trump has been elected the new President of the U.S., Bryan Cranston’s threats to leave the country were apparently empty talk and attempts to seek attention from the media. He did get attention from the media when he made those comments, and now the actor is getting double attention for being called a sissy!
While many U.S. celebrities, who had promised to leave the country, refrained from commenting on their plans to move after Trump was elected President, Bryan Cranston point-blank changed his stance and even decided to support Trump!
In his comments from earlier this year, Bryan Cranston promised he would move to Canada permanently if Trump were to become the new president.
“I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
But after Trump was elected the new President, Bryan Cranston took it to Twitter to wish him “success” during his presidential term.
Although shocked and disappointed by the outcome, I hope the pres-elect will work to unify our wounded country. I sincerely wish him success

While Bryan Cranston has a short memory for his past plans to move to Canada, the Breaking Bad star will play himself in upcoming James Franco film, according to the Independent.
Bryan Cranston is going to play himself in a small role in James Franco’s The Masterpiece, a film about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s “worst film ever made” The Room.

Bryan Cranston is currently starring alongside Franco in another project, upcoming comedy Why Him? And apparently, the two enjoy working together, as they’re making The Masterpiece happen.
In his interview with Fairfax Media, Bryan Cranston revealed details about his role in The Masterpiece.
“I play a real-life character who’s this sitcom dad. I play a character named [pauses for effect] Bryan Cranston.”
Apparently, Bryan Cranston will play the younger Malcolm in the Middle version of himself. Explaining his choice to cast Cranston in his new film, Franco told the Sydney Morning Herald that the Breaking Bad star is a “great guy.”
“But what I really love was that most people when they think of Bryan now on television they think Breaking Bad, but we would have Bryan playing himself in the movie but Bryan from Malcolm in the Middle.”
Why Him? and The Masterpiece are not the only two projects Bryan Cranston and Franco have worked on together. Cranston starred alongside Franco in 2016’s In Dubious Battle, which was also directed and produced by Franco.
Franco also added that he would work with Bryan Cranston “on anything,” so inviting him to star in The Masterpiece was a good call. The upcoming Franco film is being adapted from the book called The Disaster Artist, written by actor Greg Sestero. In the book, Sestero, who also has a part in Franco’s upcoming film, describes being in The Room.
