Cranston Named a GQ Man of the Year, EW Calls Breaking Bad ‘Must-See’

This week Bryan Cranston is named a 2010 GQ Man of the Year, while Entertainment Weekly talks up Breaking Bad, lauding Cranston’s and Aaron Paul’s rich portrayals.

GQ has honored Bryan Cranston as one of its 2010 Men of the Year, specifically the Anti-Hero of the Year. Broadway World has photos of Cranston arriving at a party celebrating the occasion. While there, Cranston talked with USA Today about going on the “Julia Roberts diet” to prep for playing her husband in the movie Larry Crowne.

Entertainment Weekly cites Breaking Bad as a “must-see”: “A show about a chemistry teacher who hooks up with a petty thug to make meth: these are our heroes? Yes, when they’re richly portrayed by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.” (no link)

Dallas’s Front Burner blog talks about discovering Breaking Bad: “I’m still in season No. 1, and I can’t get my mind off meth. Highly recommended. The show, not meth.”

TV Squad thinks this week’s episode of Modern Family (“Dash, Flash, Crash”) had shades of the Cousins.

Rabbit Hole, starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart and featuring Giancarlo Esposito, will hit theaters on December 17, according to News Blaze.

• In reviewing the Roger Corman-produced Dead Space, the Criterion Cast says it’s “worth seeing for a young Bryan Cranston, now a three-time Emmy winner.”
