Birthday Boy: Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston celebrates his 57th birthday today and while that's not any sort of milestone, I think it's nigh time he gets a bit of love on my blog. He is after all the star of one of my favorite shows Breaking Bad for which he has won three Emmy Awards and as well as his first SAG Award which he just received a couple months ago. He also picked up his second SAG Award that night as part of the ensemble for Argo which of course went on to win Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards. And if you think all he can do is act in a drama, don't forget that he was also Emmy nominated multiple times for his work in Malcolm in the Middle about a decade ago and was very recently nominated for a DGA Award for directing an episode of Modern Family.

So to say that professionally Cranston is doing well would probably be a bit of an understatement, but it makes thinking about his future that more intriguing. It will certainly be curious to see what lies next for him after Breaking Bad ends its run this summer. Will he parlay his TV successes with more leading film roles as opposed to the more ensemble roles he has taken or will he continue as a TV actor, but perhaps go back to doing lighter fare ala Malcolm in the Middle and less like Breaking Bad? Or perhaps he will take a break in front of the camera to direct as he has been doing that more lately. The sky is the limit!
