Bryan Cranston nearly missed out on playing his iconic "Breaking Bad" character, Walter White. During an appearance on James Corden's SiriusXM show "This Life Of Mine," the 68-year-old actor revealed "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" actor Matthew Broderick was "considered" for the role before Cranston was officially offered the part. "We shot the pilot of ‘Breaking Bad’ in February and March of 2007," he said. "Had ‘Malcolm In The Middle’ gone an eighth season, we wouldn’t be sitting here right now.

Or you’d be sitting here, but you’d be talking to Matthew Broderick or someone else who played Walter White instead of me." "Broderick was being considered, but it came to me because of the fact [creator and showrunner] Vince Gilligan said, ‘No, he’s the guy,’" referring to Cranston. "I needed a champion in my corner." Cranston, who portrayed Hal on "Malcom in the Middle"for seven seasons, was able to take on the role of White due to his schedule freeing up.

In 2018, Cranston detailed his "rich" experience playing White and explained why he doesn't miss the role. "No, I actually don’t miss playing Walter White," he told Fox News Digital at the time. "The reason is because it was such a complete experience for me.
