Bryan Cranston Scoffs at Lex Luthor Rumors


Bryan Cranston


'I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I'm known to be bald,' the 'Breaking Bad' actor says.

Bryan Cranston, who allegedly has inked a six "appearance" deal to play Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's Superman-Batman movie, laughs off the rumor during an interview with The Boston Globe. The Golden Globe-nominated actor, who plays Walter White on "Breaking Bad", says, "I've heard that too. Six? This is all news to me."

"I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I'm known to be bald," the 57-year-old actor, who also showed up in "Argo" as Jack O'Donnell, jokes. The father of one adds, " 'What bald guy can we get?' The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him."

Asked whether he would seek Gene Hackman for advice if he were to nab the villain role, Cranston laughs and answers, "I can just see how that phone call would go. 'Gene? Hi, this is Bryan Cranston.' 'Who? Bryan Cranston? What do you want? How did you get this number?' "

Cranston has emerged as fans' top choice to portray the villainous character that has come into conflict with both DC heroes in comics. Completely aware of this, he once expressed interest in tackling the role. "Give me a call. I like Lex Luthor. I think he's misunderstood. He's a loveable, sweet man," he said with a grin.
