Bryan Cranston Made Jerry Seinfeld Laugh Uncontrollably

While most audiences today know Bryan Cranston for his powerful performance in Breaking Bad, the Golden Globe winner has made his presence felt in many small but significant roles much earlier. In the iconic sitcom of the 90s, Seinfeld, Cranston appeared as a dentist in a few episodes that are still remembered today. In one particular episode in which Seinfeld thinks that the dentist might have molested him due to his shirt being untucked, Cranston recalled a crew member who gave him some ingenious advice to make the scene even funnier.

“I hear a voice saying, ‘Hey, you know what would be funny?’ and I look out and, on a ladder adjusting a light, is a guy. “And he goes, ‘It would be funny if you first took a hit of the laughing gas before you gave it to him’. Jerry falls over laughing. Just dies. It was hilarious. And Larry David… he said, ‘Jerry, stop laughing. Let’s do it again.’”

Bryan Cranston Leads Actors Strike With Powerful Speech

In a show of unstinted support for the Writer’s Strike, the Hollywood acting fraternity went on an Actor’s Strike to demand better pay and recognition for writers and actors in the entertainment industry. Many A-list actors have joined the movement and have contributed significant monetary sums to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation which is looking to rehabilitate people affected by the current events. Among the big celebrities, Bryan Cranston delivered a fiery and soul-stirring speech about the dangers of robotization of work that was rendering people jobless. The Golden Globe winner spoke at a Times Square rally and made a powerful statement saying,

“We don’t expect you to understand who we are. But we ask you to hear us, and beyond that to listen to us when we tell you we will not be having our jobs taken away and given to robots. We will not have you take away our right to work and earn a decent living.”
