Bryan Cranston & Chris Masterson Celebrity Poker Showdown [Video]

Chris Masterson - Poker Dream Team TournamentBack in 2004 Chris Masterson (shortly after his brother Danny) appeared on the Bravo show Celebrity Poker Showdown. Essentially 5 celebrities play no limit Texas hold ‘em poker for charity, with the winner each week progressing to the final. The show is rather fun and friendly to the novice poker viewer.

Chris plays a surprisingly quiet game, I’m guessing it was his game face, for Citizens Commission on Human Rights his chosen charity. I won’t give away how well he did, but definitely worth watching.

Chris competes quite often in tournaments, most recently the Dream Team Tournament earlier this year on 28th March.

17 June 2004 – Season 2 Episode 4

Bryan and Frankie in 3x08 Poker

In Malcolm Hal loves a poker game, even if he lacks skill, however in the real world Bryan is somewhat a shark…well at least thinks he is, appearing on Showdown twice.

Bryan says that when he was young he and his family would bet on anything “what tooth I would loose first when I was 8″. In his first appearance he played for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, a charity Bryan has supported for many years.

25 August 2005 – Season 6 Episode 2

As you can expect from Bryan he doesn’t play a quiet game, he and the other celebs spar throughout, with some pretty funny scenes. His second appearance was a special episode from New Orleans supporting Hurricane Katrina charities, Bryan chose the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

    Did you what the whole ep? The shirt stain comes up near the end.
  • I had no idea they played poker! But, Bryan did look very into the game! Looked like a pro!
  • I take it back, after watching all 3, Bryan would mop the floor with me unless I had the grace of god on my side, Chris.......I could maybe beat.

    Well, obviously, when he came in he already had a greasy spot on his left sleeve!
