The Breaking Bad megastar will be playing the role of Jerry Selbee in Jerry and Marge Go Large. Jerry, then in his 60s, is a mathematical prodigy who figured out the loophole in a lottery game that led him to become a millionaire. Bryan Cranston's performance in Breaking Bad as Walter White has earned him a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series four times.
He won a Tony Award for his portrayal of President Lyndon B. Johnson in the Broadway play All the Way. He has also appeared in several notable films such as Saving Private Ryan, Little Miss Sunshine, Drive, Argo, Godzilla, and The Upside.
Lately, Cranston has played the part of Mack in the Disney film The One and Only Ivan (2020) and in 2022, he also reprised his role as Walter White for three episodes of Better Call Saul. His upcoming projects include Wes Anderson's rom-com Asteroid City and Matthew Vaughn's spy film Argylle.
