Oscars 2016: Bryan Cranston's love of a good debate made him right for 'Trumbo'

Oscars 2016: Bryan Cranston's love of a good debate made him right for 'Trumbo'

Bryan Cranston is waiting for an elevator the morning after the Golden Globes when a woman in her early 30s approaches him holding up her iPhone.

"My husband would kill me if I didn't get a picture with you," she tells him. Cranston considers the woman's request. "He would kill you?" he says, repeating her choice of words. "If you don't mind me saying so, that concerns me." Cranston obliges, as he does so often these days, his face immediately recognizable from his five-year stint playing Walter White, the high school chemistry teacher who becomes a drug lord (and relishes that decision) on "Breaking Bad."
