Biography

BRYAN CRANSTON (Joe Brody) won three consecutive Emmy® Awards form Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” giving him the honor of being only the second actor in history, and the first on a cable series, to win three Best Actor Emmys in a row. For his portrayal of anti-hero Walter White on the series, Cranston has also been honored with two Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards® and a Golden Globe, as well as additional Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG Award nominations. He also shared in a SAG Award in the category of Outstanding Drama Series Ensemble and was honored by the Television Critics Association.

Cranston is currently making his Broadway debut as President Lyndon B. Johnson in “All the Way,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan. The play depicts the early period of LBJ’s presidency and his relationship with key political figures, including Martin Luther King, Jr., J. Edgar Hoover and Senator Richard Russell. Cranston received rave reviews for his performance, which just finished a sold out run at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

On the big screen, Cranston recently essayed the role of CIA operative Jack O’Donnell, in Ben Affleck’s Oscar®-winning Best Picture “Argo,” for which he shared in a SAG Award® for Outstanding Motion Picture Ensemble. He will next begin production on Jay Roach’s “Trumbo,” playing the title role of Dalton Trumbo, one of Hollywood’s most successful screenwriters whose career came to an end when he was blacklisted in the 1940s for being a communist.

Last year, Cranston was heard as the voice of Vitality in “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted,” and will next voice a character in DreamWorks’ “Kung Fu Panda 3.” His long list of film credits includes Len Wiseman’s remake of “Total Recall”; Adam Shankman’s “Rock of Ages”; Nicolas Winding Refn’s critically acclaimed “Drive,” opposite Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan; as well as “Contagion,” “John Carter of Mars,” “Larry Crowne,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Seeing Other People,” “Saving Private Ryan” and “That Thing You Do!

Born to a show business family and raised in Southern California, Cranston made his acting debut at the age of eight in a United Way commercial. It wasn’t until he finished college that acting became a serious consideration. While on a cross-country motorcycle trip with his brother, he discovered community theater and began exploring every aspect of the stage. Soon, he was cast in a summer stock company.

Cranston returned to Los Angeles and quickly landed a role on the television movie “Love Without End,” which led to his being signed as an original cast member of ABC’s “Loving.” He went on to appear in numerous television roles, including a seven-year run as Hal on FOX’s “Malcolm in the Middle,” for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe and three Emmy awards; the recurring role of dentist Tim Whatley on “Seinfeld”; as Buzz Aldrin in HBO’s acclaimed miniseries “From the Earth to the Moon”; and in the telefilm “I Know My First Name is Steven,” among others.

Cranston is also enjoying success behind the camera, as a director, writer and producer. He has earned three Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award nominations, the first for an episode of “Modern Family,” followed by dual nods this year, for episodes of “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad.” As a producer on “Breaking Bad,” he also won Emmy and Producers Guild of America Awards for Outstanding Drama Series.

He previously wrote, directed and starred in the original romantic drama “Last Chance” as a birthday gift for his wife, Robin Dearden, and also directed several episodes of “Malcolm in the Middle” and the Comedy Central pilot “Special Unit.” In 2011, Cranston served as executive producer of an exclusive online series called “The Handlers” for Atom.com, in which he also starred as Jack Powers, a politician campaigning for a seat in the State Senate.

Cranston continues to pursue his love for theater whenever possible. His credits on stage include “The God of Hell,” “Chapter Two,” “The Taming of the Shrew,” “A Doll’s House,” “Eastern Standard,” “Wrestlers,” “Barefoot in the Park” and “The Steven Weed Show,” for which he won a Drama-Logue Award.

Additionally, Cranston produced an instructional DVD called KidSmartz, which is designed to educate families on how to stay safe from child abduction and Internet predators. KidSmartz raises money for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
