Bryan Cranston revealed he once provided voices for the show Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.
Most people probably know the award-winning actor from his gigs on Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad. Before the actor became a household name, he was once a struggling actor like many others with dreams of Hollywood stardom.
During his Reddit AMA this week, Bryan Cranston revealed he once provided the voices for a couple of monsters on Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Although he only appeared in two episodes of the long-running series, the actor apparently made an impression on the showrunners.
“I did voice work for the ‘Power Rangers’ years and years ago. Someone once told me they named the blue Power Ranger after me, his last name was Cranston. I found out years later that was true,” Cranston explained.
In addition to discussing Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and his love of the band Steely Dan, Bryan Cranston also fielded several questions about his character on Breaking Bad. One user wanted to know at what point in the show did Walter White actually “break bad.”
“My feeling is that Walt broke bad in the very first episode. It was very subtle but he did because that’s when he decided to become someone that he’s not in order to gain financially. He made the Faustian deal at that point and everything else was a slippery slope,” the actor explained.
The final eight episodes of Breaking Bad will begin airing on August 11.
