What this series has meant for the actors in the 'Bad' are major kudos and mega-offers for more TV and film roles. Bryan Cranston, the star of 'Bad' is no stranger to TV (Malcolm in the Middle) or movies (Saving Private Ryan, Argo, Drive) but is now getting bigger and better role offers. He is rumored to be tapped as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Man of Steel" (WB) film, but Cranston has denied these rumors.
Responding to reports that he had signed on for six films as Superman's nemesis, Cranston told the Boston Globe, "Six, this is all news to me. I think that maybe my name is bandied about because I'm known to be bald. 'What bald guy can we get ?' The reality is they can take any actor and shave his head or put a bald cap on him."
Widely known as "Superman v Batman" after Warner Bros. stated that the two superheros would square off in the upcoming movie (schedule for release in 2015), Ben Affleck is rumored to play Batman while Henry Cavill will continue his role as Superman. Former James Bond portrayer, Timothy Dalton, is being considered for the role of Alfred (Batman's butler). Dalton, who is 69, (time does fly by) would push out Michael Caine (80) who wants the role he as played in three previous Batman films.
On another 'Bad' topic. As the series comes to an end, fans had a chance to enjoy a piece of the show, literally. ScreenBid.com auctioned off over 250 props used in the show yesterday. From a car (Walt's Aztec) to a teddy bear (starting bid was $1,500 for the pink teddy) fans gobbled up the mementos in short order.
