Breaking Bad is cited as one of the best shows ever made. Fans loved the story of a Professor turning into a meth cook and eventually the most feared person. The show might be based on meth-making and drugs, but it talks about morals, family values and emotions that hit hard.
It has been 7 years since this Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul starred ended. But many are still discovering this amazing show and enjoying every bit of it. No fan imagine anyone playing the role of Professor Walter White other than Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad. But what if we tell you that he wasn’t the first choice to play the character?
The network AMC and production house Sony Pictures Television wanted a famous face to play Walt. In our Breaking Bad Trivia #1 today we will tell you the two actors who were considered play the lead. These actors were John Cusack or Matthew Broderick. When things didn’t work out with them, show’s creator Vince Gilligan thought no one better than Bryan can play the character.
About casting Bryan to play as Walter White in the series, Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter years ago, “We needed somebody who could be dramatic and scary yet have an underlying humanity so when he dies, you felt sorry for him. Bryan nailed it.”
We’re glad that Walter was chosen for the role as he gave an impeccable performance. That was our Breaking Bad trivia for today. Tell us what do you think of Cranston performance in the comments below?
