“She needs to get in costume and deliver a regular news item wearing that costume,” Cranston proclaimed in a video he sent to ET.
The Oscar-nominated actor's voice is featured in the animated film, Kung Fu Panda 3, so his choice of costume was -- no surprise -- a panda! O’Dell did her best, donning a full panda suit and head at the end of Wednesday’s show, alongside Po and Mei Mei, Jack Black and Kate Hudson's Kung Fu Panda 3 characters.
“I didn't quite fit into the actual Kung Fu Panda outfit,” the ET host said as she announced the celeb birthday of the day, Scream Queens star Emma Roberts, in her costume. “I'm a little tall. But I did get Po and Mei Mei from the movie!”
Roberts, who turned 25 on Wednesday, apparently dreamed of being a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader when she was young. “This is good,” O’Dell joked. “because I always wanted to be a Kung Fu Panda.”
"Bryan Cranston, I'm going to get you back for this," she added.
