I love how Bryan approached his character in relation to his counterpart. It really goes to show that he thought of the overall story and how to enhance everyone else. Just a brilliant actor.
It’s insane how large of a range Bryan has. Extremely funny and slapstick to ultra serious and dramatic.
I know, he’s not only an amazing person but an amazing guy
You must be new to Hollywood shows and movies huh
Malcolm in the middle is one of the best sitcoms ever made. What a character and what a show. It was genuinely funny with incredible writing and incredible characters. One of the only shows where nearly every single side character is just as funny and quirky as the main cast. Everyone is amazing in it.
Watch Bill Mahers club random to see what a spineless twit bryan really is 🤦🏾♂️
@av If it werent for Jessica we’d never have Malcolm and Reese dancing to ABBA.
except jessica, she was the worst
@bing chilling I think the last two seasons definitely dropped a bit but in 4 and 5 we got introduced to Otto, Gretchen and the dude ranch. Otto is one of my favorite side characters and seasons 4 and 5 have some amazing episodes. You’re right about 1-3 being peak Malcolm in the Middle though.
I rewatch Malcolm in the Middle start to finish every couple years and every time I am blown away by how good that show is and how amazing Bryan Cranston portrays that role. Pure acting and comedy genius. Also Malcom in the Middle may be my favorite series finale episode of all time
His portrayal of Hal is so underrated because of how good he played Walter
Love how real he is with his answers.
The tell of how talented an actor is you look at their comedic talent. Comedic acting is the hardest thing to pull off well and he consistently has throughout his career.
One of the rare tv show actor that deserves every awards he’ve won over the years against great competition as well. A true TV GOAT
Haven’t seen Malcom in the Middle since it was canceled. The roller skating episode was hilarious & unforgettable.
It’s all free on The Roku Channel.
Cranston is a master at giving his characters depth. Truly an actor at the very core.
Bryan Cranston is one of the most wholesome, not just actors but human beings to ever live.🙏
I love how he seeks his wife’s council. “We’re together”.
Why whyyyyy people get amazed about celebrities. Sure, he’s a great actor, but he’s human also, which means at least half of him is flawed, just like anyone else. Stop jerking off to famous people like if they were some kind of deity.
@ploopy The likelihood of anyone, in our lifetime, being anything less than mediocre, is minuscule.
@ACID BONSAI Honestly, the only one you mentioned, that I’ve ever heard of is Jim Carey. And as much as I like him, he’s never seemed very well-centered, & he can be over-the-top annoying.
