Bryan Cranston, best known for playing the science teacher turned Meth kingpin on “Breaking Bad”, may be a major celebrity but is also a stand-up guy.
Cranston helped a teen named Stefan Montana score a prom date by asking the girl Maddie as his Walter White/Heisenberg character. So cool!
The sweet actor didn’t hesitate when he was asked for his assistance outside a New York theater.
The 58-year-old actor channeled his character, Walter White, asking, “Maddie, if you don’t go to the prom with Stefan, maybe your best course of action would be to tread lightly.”
Stefan then chimed in and excitedly asked, “Maddie, will you go to the prom with me?”
Stefan Montana later stated, “It wasn’t a realistic thought at first. But we were waiting (outside the theater) and I asked, ‘Could you please do this?'”
The teen adds, “He really is the nicest guy in the world. It really is true. He’s not really a celebrity, he’s a dude. He didn’t have to help me out but it was pretty amazing.”
Montana sent the request to Maddie via Instagram and she accepted that night.
Stefan said he and Maddie are big fans of the show and she got the reference right away.
Montana stated, “Even though (the line) is inherently a threat I thought that’s what made it ironic and funny. The way he did (the line) turned it around. I thought it was so cool.”
Cranston is currently starring on Broadway for the first time as President Lyndon B. Johnson in “All the Way”.
The actor, who won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series three consecutive times for “Breaking Bad”, can also be seen in “Godzilla” in May.
