Exclusive: BREAKING BAD’s Bryan Cranston Nabs a Recurring Role on THE CLEVELAND SHOW
January 10, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
Bryan Cranston is sure keeping busy between BREAKING BAD seasons.
First, Huffington Post reported that he will voice a character in the ARCHER season finale. Now, Give Me My Remote can exclusively report that Cranston has also signed on for a recurring role on Fox’s THE CLEVELAND SHOW next season.
“I’ll tell you something that’s not out there: Bryan Cranston is joining the cast in a recurring role as Cleveland’s doctor [next season],” THE CLEVELAND SHOW executive producer Rich Appel shared. “One of our first table reads when we get back in January, we bring him into the bar scene as a semi-regular on the show. He’s done a couple of episodes, but just little scenes here or there. He’s so funny, obviously, and we’re all obsessed with BREAKING BAD, so it’s wish fulfillment.”
In fact, the writers love BREAKING BAD so much, they’re working the series in to a separate storyline.
“In another episode, without [Cranston in it], when Roberta breaks up with her boyfriend, Rollo sees this as a great opportunity to find a cooler boyfriend for her,” Appel laughed. “The one thing [wrong with] the new boyfriend — played by Kid Cudi — is that he’s an upstanding guy who won’t let Rollo watch BREAKING BAD. And that’s Rollo’s favorite show. And he decides as soon as this guy doesn’t let him watch BREAKING BAD, Rollo decides he has to go. So even though Bryan’s not in that episode, we wanted to do a homage and say it’s the coolest show on TV. Even the 5-year-old watches it.”
