Walter White takes on the girl group's hit

TAGS:

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has offered up a dramatic reading of Little Mix song ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ on BBC Radio 1.

The actor – best known for his role as high school chemistry teacher-turned-drug kingpin Walter White (aka Heisenberg) in the hit US show – appeared on Scott Mills’ Radio 1 show this week, where he was asked to recite the lyrics to the girl group’s hit “Breaking Bad style”.

The lyrics include such lines as “I hope she gettin’ better sex / Hope she ain’t fakin’ it like I did, babe”, thought to be written about Zayn Malik. Watch in full beneath.

Earlier this week, Cranston recalled a time in his youth when he was wanted for murder.

Cranston also recently said that he would be open to starring in Breaking Bad spin-off show Better Call Saul.

Speaking about a possible cameo, Cranston said on the Rich Eisen Show: “I owe [Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator] Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role. If they were to call me and say, ‘We have this idea, we’d like…’ I would say, ‘Yes, you don’t have to finish the pitch. I’m there, what do you want me to do?’ I’ll do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and storylines and it wouldn’t be something, ‘Oh, isn’t that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing.’ It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in.”

“I have an opportunity to direct an episode of Saul and I’m debating whether I want to or not because I’m a fan of the show, and in order to direct I need to know what no fan knows,” he added. “I need to go back and they’ll tell me what’s going to happen leading up to the episode and there’s a part of me that says, ‘That would kind of kill it for me as a fan to peak behind the curtain.’ So, I don’t know if I am or not.”

Cranston was then asked whether he misses Breaking Bad, to which he answered: “Surprisingly, I don’t, and I think the reason is because Vince Gilligan crafted just what I think is the perfect beginning, middle, and end to a story. So because it was so complete I had a total completion.”
