Bryan Cranston as Oscar Contender, Cast in Richard Linklater Movie

This week, Bryan Cranston is deemed an Oscar contender for Wakefield and is cast in a Richard Linklater movie. Plus, Diane Kruger raves about working with the actor. Read on for more:

• Reviewing Wakefield at the Telluride Film Festival, The Hollywood Reporter says that Bryan Cranston’s “tour de force will be the main selling point both to potential distributors and the public.”

• Meanwhile, Deadline adds that Bryan Cranston, “who seemingly is incapable of giving a bad performance, has delivered a tour de force portrayal in Wakefield, equal to or even surpassing his 2015 Oscar-nominated role in Trumbo.”

• According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bryan Cranston has been cast with Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne in Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying, a sequel to 1973’s The Last Detail which starred Jack Nicholson.

• Diane Kruger talks to The National about acting beside Bryan Cranston in The Infiltrator: “Oh, my God – I was dying to work with him. Everybody is, though – in the actor’s world … he’s a god. He cannot do wrong.”

Entertainment Weekly looks forward to Bryan Cranston’s upcoming memoir, A Life in Parts, extolling, “By turns gritty, funny, and sad, this fiercely intelligent book from the Breaking Bad star defies celebrity-memoir tropes.”

Parade‘s fall movie preview includes both Sully (Sept. 9), which features Anna Gunn, and Why Him? (Dec. 25), which stars Bryan Cranston.
