Bryan Cranston Locked to Host 'Saturday Night Live'


Bryan Cranston


Fans would just have to remember that before taking a serious role on 'Breaking Bad', the actor was the buffoonish father on 'Malcolm in the Middle'.

It was a curious case for "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan as to why "Saturday Night Live" never made Bryan Cranston as a host. Gilligan's hope is coming true this season as Cranston announced during an interview with ESPN Radio's Mason and Ireland that he has been invited.

Cranston is fresh from scoring his third Emmy as the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama on Sunday, August 29. While speaking about his victory at the prestigious awards show, Cranston revealed that he's "so thrilled and excited" to be hosting "SNL" on October 2.

This would be his first time appearing in a sketch but it's not his first foray into comedy. Before portraying the desperate school teacher on "Breaking Bad", Cranston is known as the antic father on "Malcolm in the Middle". For one, he's got the vote of confidence from Gilligan who said Cranston would "hit it out of the park".

"Saturday Night Live" will begin its 36th season on September 25. Since Will Forte has announced his departure from the show, the producers have tapped three new cast members namely Paul Brittain, Vanessa Bayer and Taran Killam.
