Once again, Bryan Cranston knocks it out of the park.
In the long-form teaser he shot for TBS' upcoming coverage of the MLB postseason, the Breaking Bad star reveals that he's always wanted to do a one-man show about baseball. "Then it hit me: Why not dramatize the entire MLB postseason," Cranston says as the teaser cuts to flashbacks of his performance.
Donning team uniforms of those expected to be in the playoffs (sans the Boston Red Sox), the award-winning actor muses about America's pastime and the inspiration behind his one-man show, "Bugs Bunny." "Mr. B. Any actor who tells you that he is not inspired by Bugs Bunny is a liar, frankly, or just a hack," Cranston touts.
The show has all the baseball fixings with just one player on the field: Cranston. He pitches, hits, runs the bases, makes emotional speeches to the press, gets a pie in the face (thrown by himself), announces the ballgame and even does a dramatic reading of the song "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."
Saying of his vision, "I wanted the theater itself to become the entire ballpark experience."
This wouldn't be Cranston's first one-man show this year. In all seriousness, he won a Tony for his portrayal of former President Lyndon B. Johnson in Broadway's All the Way.
Though his MLB performance is sure to go viral, Cranston really got people talking when he made out with Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the 2014 Emmy Awards. Check out the shocking smooch:
