You know who is one of my all-time favourite actors? Bryan Cranston. You’re god damn right it is! Ever since he made a HUGE name for himself in the superb series Breaking Bad he’s become a household name and is hotter property than the new graphics card Trevor ‘acquired’ recently. He’s an intense actor that can do drama but funnily enough comedy too. Well this time round he’s in a movie I am very keen to see (I didn’t think his role in the last Godzilla was well placed at all) as I was enthralled by the Netflix series Narcos, a series about one of the largest drug lords Pablo Escobar. Cranston plays Robert Mazur, a federal customs and excise agent who managed to infiltrate the world’s largest cartels and expose just how many pies they had their fingers in. The film, which is directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer), is based on the autobiography of Robert Mazur himself, and is set during the opulent, Wolf of Wall Street-like 80s where, if you had money, anything went. His role would ultimately bring the world’s largest drug cartels to the ground. How he is still alive I don’t know. Have a watch!
That looks pretty damn awesome doesn’t it? Starring alongside Cranston are Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), Yul Vazquez (Captain Phillips) John Leguizamo (Chef), Benjamin Bratt (Traffic), and the awesome Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone). The Infiltrator will be out on 15 July.
