Bryan Cranston Almost Missed Out on ‘Godzilla’ Remake


Bryan Cranston initially rejected a starring role in the new Godzilla movie reboot over fears the script wouldn’t live up to his quality expectations.

The Breaking Bad star, who we saw dining last week in Central Park, was approached to play the nuclear physicist father of co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s character in the Hollywood remake early last year, but he was hesitant about signing up for the project.

He tells Playbill, “At first, I turned it down. Then my agents, who know I’m about the writing of it, told me to read it again. I did, and discovered it’s not what I first thought. This is a character-driven monster movie. That’s neat.”

Cranston is currently appearing on Broadway in All The Way where he portrays former U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson.
