Bryan Cranston is more than interested to return to a role that has since made him a household name. And I'm sorry but it's not Walter White from Breaking Bad. I'm actually referring to his fatherly character named Hal from Malcolm in the Middle.
Cranston is busy doing press for his new film Trumbo when he sat down with Entertainment Tonight Canada for an exclusive interview in which he said he's not interested in returning to Walter White's world, but is however interested in returning to his Malcolm in the Middle roots for which he was Emmy nominated three times for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
"I don't have a yearning to go back into [Walter's] world because we just covered it completely I think," he said.
"Right now, I think, I look back on 'Malcolm In The Middle.' It's been 10 years since we went off the air, and it'd be fun to pick up that guy's clothes again and be fun and sweet and adorable and hapless and clueless and afraid of everything," Brian admitted.
I'd personally rather see Bryan Cranston take more leading role work instead of going back to a show led by the not-as-interesting-as-Bryan-Cranston actor Frankie Muniz. But I'm willing to follow Cranston down this path if he thinks it'll be at all good.
Muniz actually caused a bit of a stir when he suggested interest in a possible sequel to the show himself on Sept. 7th via his twitter page. Most sites ran with the comment but it seemed like it was more of an "on the toilet" kind of tweet than anything with meaning.
But now with Cranston on board, clearly the only star to really have much of a career after the show wanting to return, it's not altogether impossible that we'll see more of these characters in the near future.
Now the question is would you like to see more Malcolm in the Middle?
