Playing 'Breaking Bad' Star Bryan Cranston on Not Wanting to Play Walter White Again: 'It Feels Done'

Bryan Cranston is ready to leave Walter White behind.

The 59-year-old actor talked to ET Canada about being able to leave his career-making Breaking Bad role in the past.

"I don't have a yearning to go back into [Walter's] world because we just covered it completely I think," Cranston said. "It feels done."

Cranston played Walter for five seasons on the critically acclaimed drama, a role that ultimately netted him four Lead Actor Emmy awards.

Now, if it's Malcolm in the Middle you're talking about, Cranston is more than game for a reboot!

"Right now, I think, I look back on Malcolm In The Middle. It's been 10 years since we went off the air," he said. "And it'd be fun to pick up that guy's clothes again and be fun and sweet and adorable and hapless and clueless and afraid of everything."

Currently, Cranston is focusing on his new movie, Trumbo, about Hollywood's Communist blacklisting scandal in the 1940's.

"'Trumbo' was a great guy to get involved in," Cranston said. "Troubled, confusing, complex... just an interesting guy to get in his skin."
