Bryan Cranston Re-Teams With James Franco in New Comedy
Emmy Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston and Academy Award-nominee James Franco are set to share the big screen in a new upcoming film, Why Him?
Cranston is set to play a father who travels with his family to visit his daughter at college for the holidays, but when they arrive he discovers he has to compete for her attention after finding out she has a wealthy boyfriend played by Franco.
Franco shared his excitement about their new project on Instagram, writing, “Could not be more excited to work with my man, WALTER WHITE!!!!”, referring to Cranston’s drug kingpin character on Breaking Bad.
This will be the unlikely duo’s second collaboration in as many years, as the two also star in In Dubious Battle, a drama directed by Franco set for a 2016 release.
