Before they were famous: Bryan Cranston


Bryan Cranston was born into a dysfunctional family of performers in Canoga Park, California. After his father, a struggiling actor walked out on the fam at age 11, Cranston and his siblings were raised by his grandparents and worked on their poultry farm. Despite getting a degree in police sciences, Cranston began acting after college, starting out in theatre and small roles on television.

 

Through the 90’s Cranston was consistently working as a character actor. Appearing on multiple network shows as a villains of the week, loveable room mates and of course Jerry Seinfeld’s dubious dentist, Tim Whatley.

 

In 2000 Cranston would finally find a home on television with the Fox sitcom, Malcolm In The Middle and for six seasons he would become loved by audiences as the ridiculous pussy whipped father, Hal.
