Before he picked up Emmy after Emmy as Walter White in Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston picked up work in series like Baywatch, Walker, Texas Ranger, and V.I.P. But, still, the actor told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Monday during his Season 5 Part 2 Breaking Bad media blitz that he's "never done anything I was embarrassed about." (And that includes wearing tighty-whities as both Malcolm in the Middle's Hal and Breaking Bad's Walt, a decision that he's defended artfully on numerous occasions.)
And, thank goodness, otherwise he would have never have signed off on Leno airing footage from Cranston's stint on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in 1993, a job he teased while appearing on The Colbert Report last week. The clip of Cranston as a monster fighting the crew of child-friendly ninjas is a must-see for anyone hoping to watch Walter White meet his maker at the end of Season 5 Part 2, which premieres Sunday, Aug. 11 — perhaps Jesse and Hank should consider recruiting a colorful sextet to take down Breaking Bad's evil meth kingpin?
Watch Cranston's Tonight Show interview below, complete with a clip of the actor as Power Rangers villain Snizard, and wonder how someone as lovable as the Breaking Bad actor manages to be so, so good at being so, so bad.
