Bryan joins the Love Ranch
This was posted on Bryan's website today:
It looks like I am back to Albuquerque! Although season one of Breaking Bad is wrapped (also filmed in Albuquerque), I have been cast as the corrupt Senator in the new Taylor Hackford project Love Ranch. Based on real events, Love Ranch is a drama centered around a married couple who open the first legal brothel in Nevada.

Thanks for this news, PBUNDY! I do believe this film also stars Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci as the married couple who open the brothel.

Thanks for sharing, Pbundy. I'll move it to the News section. Who here is supposed to be the News person? Because I'll let you handle Wordpress; I'm not really sure how TJ has thing set up in that dept. and I don't wanna risk screwing something up if someone else here actually knows what they're doing.
It's good to see Bryan moving on to so many different and eclectic roles since MITM. Of course sometimes it seems more like Hal's playing all these different parts than Bryan.

Here is fine. I'll sort other things out later.

After a long legal battle between the filmmakers and financiers, Love Ranch has finally secured a US distributor (E1 Entertainment) and a release date although the exact release date has yet to be officially announced. The director says "July 4th weekend" while the the Hollywood Reporter says June. Either way, at least we know the film will be released theatrically (albeit on a limited scale) this summer.

Great news! I love Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci! Bryan will find himself in great acting company!

As expected, he was great fun to watch again! It's a piece of wonderful timing and acting in itself, I think mimicking David's own deadpan style more than a bit!
It's already on YouTube of course, though not complete (*):
(*) P.S. Well, though it looks a bit dodgy, this was pretty much all there was. After it, Letterman just said, like, 'Bryan Cranston's on Breaking Bad, great to have you on our show'.

The trailer for Love Ranch has been released. At first watch, I didn't notice Bryan in the trailer but I could have missed him as I didn't watch too closely. I'm not a fan of Joe Pesci but the film looks okay and Helen Mirren always seems to elevate the material for any movie she's in so I'll probably watch it on DVD.
The film opens in limited release next month.
