'Breaking Bad' Star Bryan Cranston Claims:

  AMC’s Breaking Bad became easily the largest television phenomenon of last year and though it has ended production, it still lingers with fans and cast alike. Recently, Bryan Cranston spoke with The Guardian about his role as former president Lyndon B Johnson on Broadway’s All The Way and also about his Golden Globe and Emmy award winning role as Walter White and the ethical questions surrounding him and his actions. When The Guardian calls White “possibly the darkest and most morally ambiguous protagonist in television history" Cranston had this to say: "Do anyone's motives have purity? Mother Theresa, maybe. But people like that are saints who walk the earth, and very few," he states. "'Breaking Bad' resonated because there's a Walter White in every person in the world. We're all capable of it. It's never realized in most of us. But given the right circumstances, anyone could be threatened enough, fearful enough, desirous enough. Walt was a man who was depressed; his emotions were cocooned. He didn't know how he felt. And then the terminal diagnosis frees him: 'Fuck it! If I do one bold thing in my life, this is it. And it's for my family. And then I die.' Of course, a simple plan goes awry." This isn’t the first, and surely won’t be the last time Cranston defends Walter White. He had a similar interview last August at an event in New York City. Cranston has been keeping busy since the show’s last episode. You can see him in Gareth Edward’s upcoming Godzilla remake this May and next year’s Kung Fu Panda threequel. What do you think? Do all people have the “fight or flight” mentality? Would you be capable of doing Walter White-esque actions for you family?
