Bryan Cranston Says ‘Breaking Bad’ Co-Star Aaron Paul is “Like a Son”

Posted by PZ on January 28th, 2014


‘Breaking Bad’ may have wrapped up after season 5 but it looks like co-stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are staying in touch. Bryan, who has a 20-year-old daughter named Taylor, admits that he now has a lasting friendship with Aaron and he’s like a member of his own family. He even says he is “like a son” and they’ll be friends for life thanks to the award-winning show:

”We’re very close. He’s my pal for life. He’s just like a son to me. Not just that but he’s a really fantastic actor, and I have to say that he’s an even better person.”

Bryan has been playing the part of former US president Lyndon B. Johnson in Broadway production ‘All the Way’ and says he is enjoying being on stage because the reward is so immediate and it’s a very satisfying experience:

”There’s more immediate reward on this stage then there was on the ‘Breaking Bad’ set. You’re in the moment. You can say something and then hear an audience gasp or just hear them feel a sentence. Or laugh. It’s very powerful. With television and film, it’s different. It’s fun too but you have to wait a long time for that indulgence.”

Speaking on if he has plans to appear in the ‘Breaking Bad’ spin-off series ‘Better Call Saul’, Bryan says he would certainly be open to it:

”I have no idea [if I’ll appear]. Possibly? I’d be open to it for sure! It’d be fun to go back into the New Mexico desert and play with all my old friends.”
