Bryan Cranston has joined the cast of John Carter of Mars. The Breaking Bad and Malcolm in the Middle star will play a Civil War colonel who has a kerfuffle with Carter – presumably on Earth before Carter is zapped away to Mars.  At least I hope that is the case.  Lord help us if TWO Earthlings land on Mars, thus altering the Edgar Rice Burroghs story.  The good thing is Andrew Stanton is directing, and he should keep everything in line with the original.

    I hope they screw with continuity if it means more Cranston. :P

      Agreed. One of the best actors working today, what he needs is a lead role in a Coen brothers film or something, that would be awesome.

    I agree. He’s the best thing on TV and I will watch anything he is in.
