When Bryan Cranston gained worldwide fame as meth kingpin Walter White on "Breaking Bad," everybody commented on what a radical departure it was from his work as Hal, the father on family sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle."
But a new promo video from Comedy Central UK, advertising an upcoming set of "Malcolm in the Middle" re-runs, has twisted that theory seriously on its head, suggesting that Hal wasn't quite as mild-mannered as we all thought.
The video, uploaded to YouTube this week, is captioned: “Before he was Walter White, he was the Dad in Malcolm In The Middle.” Let's just say it puts Hal in a completely different light.
With the knowledge that Cranston went on to play White, some of the innocent things he said back then take on a much more sinister tone. Watch it above.
