Dick Cheney should stay out of “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston’s territory, just as much as he should stay out of Canada. The iconic actor who played Walter White aka Heisenberg on AMC’s insanely celebrated series, “Breaking Bad,” just so happens to be the coolest and nicest guy on the planet.
In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Cranston let it be known that he’s disgusted with politicians who engage in fear-mongering so as to hoodwink the electorate. I know, I know–yet another opinionated meathead liberal from Hollywood weighing in on politics. However, Cranston rarely, if ever, speaks his mind on politics and current affairs. But when he does, it’s always very succinct and insightful.
We saw that in the middle of George W. Bush’s presidency, Dick Cheney said something to the effect of, ‘If Bush isn’t reelected, there will be another attack on American soil.’ That’s nothing but fear mongering. And shame on him. If I ever get a chance to meet him, I would say those three words: Shame on you.
Cranston was also very annoyed by the mainstream media’s flagrant misuse of the term socialism.
It has been demonized—and they’ve done well. What the public perceives to be the truth is how they behave—and how they respond—and they were able to get this sensibility out and scare the people into thinking that this was happening
Cranston, having played the controversial LBJ and thus no stranger to political dramas, wrapped up playing Dalton Trumbo–Hollywood’s top screenwriter until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs. So it’s safe to say that he has learned a thing or two about the dangers of manipulation by the powers that be. Trumbo opens in theaters later today.
