"I always did the monsters and things: 'You will not escape me!' that kind of thing," Cranston explained to ET's Ashley Crossan on set. "That was a long time ago."
That's right! More than 10 years before Breaking Bad, Cranston was paid $50 an hour to do voice-over work for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series.
Now, Cranston is back in the $5 billion franchise with a starring role in the big-screen reboot.
The reboot follows "five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove -- and the world -- is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat."
"Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet," the synopsis continues. "But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late."
The villain, Rita Repulsa, is played by Elizabeth Banks, who endured four hours of makeup, face prosthetics, fake gold teeth and a stretchy green body suit just to achieve her sexy, evil look.
"Crazy headdress, crazy outfits," Banks said. "It's big and broad and brassy and ballsy, and takes no prisoners."
The new cast includes five newcomers: Red Ranger Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Blue Ranger Billy (RJ Cyler), Yellow Ranger Trini (Becky G.), Black Ranger Zack (Ludi Lin) and Pink Ranger Kimberly (Naomi Scott).
Saban's Power Rangers hits theaters March 24. Advance movie ticket sales start Monday.
