In Wakefield, Bryan Cranston plays a successful New York lawyer, who, upon returning to his perfect suburban home one night, decides to take a nap in the attic above his garage. Days turn then into weeks, and weeks into month, as Howard Wakefield scavengers food from the trash, grows out a scruffy beard, and spies on his family from a rear window — all the while dissecting the trivialities of his seemingly idyllic (but clearly not idyllic) life. Cranston doesn’t want you to think about Walt while watching Wakefield, and the characters couldn’t be more different.

As his Emmy award-winning run on AMC’s beloved drama Breaking Bad was entering its second season, Bryan Cranston told The AV Club, “I love playing pompous asses.

Since wrapping up Breaking Bad in 2013, Bryan Cranston has faced the gargantuan task of breaking away from meth-cooking cancer patient Walter White, one of the most iconic characters in TV history. Cranston has cranked up his film work in recent years, with supporting roles in movies like Godzilla, Argo, and Total Recall. The actor is able to disappear beneath the horn-rimmed glasses, fantastic ‘stache, perpetually furled brow, and constant stream of witticisms from the mouth of famed screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.
