The actor appeared on “Today” Monday morning to promote his new film, “The Infiltrator,” and ended up showcasing his spot-on impression of The Donald.
“I’d like to play Donald Trump at some point,” Cranston said. “He’s this Shakespearean character, this serio-tragic-comedic character. Who wouldn’t want to take a bite out of that?”
Prompted by host Carson Daly, Cranston launched into his Donald take ― tiny hands, pursed lips and all:
His Seinfeld impression isn’t bad either.
The actor also recently gave The Huffington Post a little insight into his next role ― playing Zordon in the upcoming “Power Rangers” reboot.
“At first I was, to be honest with you, I was reticent to looking at the role because I remember the television series was kind of farcical and silly and ‘pow’ and ‘zow’ — weird movements and things like that,” Cranston said. “I was like, ‘Oh, OK.’”
The actor added, “I wasn’t really high on it until I talked to the producer and read the script and talked to the director. After that I went, ‘This is different. This is as different a reimagining as the ‘Batman’ television series as it became the ‘Batman’ movie series.”
We’ll have to wait until March 2017 to see.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
