“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston opened up about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump this week on the Nerdist podcast, and his views might raise a few eyebrows.
Time magazine reports that Cranston, who won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series four times for “Breaking Bad” — along with a couple of Emmys as one of the producers of the Outstanding Drama Series — said he finds Trump “refreshing.”
The report notes that Cranston’s comments don’t necessarily make him a Trump supporter.
Cranston is quoted saying: “There’s something so refreshing about shaking up that world that is all about being handled, and here comes this loose cannon who has terrible ideas and would be a horrible president, but there’s something great about his ‘I-don’t-give-a-sh-t’ attitude that really kind of keeps others honest.”
Cranston added: “I think it’s a surprise benefit to the country, actually. I hope he stays in for a long, long time. And just collapses that whole tent of his.”
