What a colorful past! Bryan Cranston opened up about being a real-life murder suspect in an interview to promote his new memoir, A Life in Parts, in which he reveals that he lost his virginity as a teen to a prostitute.

During a Wednesday, October 12, appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actor, 60, recounted the time police thought he might have something to do with the death of a chef at a Polynesian restaurant in Daytona Beach, Florida, where he worked pre-fame.

“The head chef was a guy named Peter Wong. Now Peter was a good chef — and a horrible person,” he told Jimmy Fallon. “He was the first person I ever met who I just realized, ‘Oh my God, I hate this guy.’ I don’t think I’ve ever hated someone before Peter Wong. He was not a nice guy. He was miserable and mean.”

Cranston — whose Breaking Bad character, Walter White, was memorably involved in murder plots of his own — went on to say that he and his coworkers would often joke about killing Mr. Wong because they resented him so much.

In an odd turn of events, the chef ended up being murdered and, as Cranston explains, his restaurant colleagues were the first people police interrogated.

“’Did anybody ever talk about hurting or killing Peter Wong?’” the Power Rangers actor recalled the officers saying. “And all the waiters are like, ‘Yeah, all of us.’”

Cranston and his older brother, Kyle — who had also taken up a job at the eatery — had quit just a week prior to Wong’s murder and were motorcycling their way up the East Coast. According to the Emmy winner, his coworkers told police how much he and his sibling hated the chef, which made them suspects.

“They were looking for us! … We were somewhere north of the Carolinas,” Cranston — who, along with Kyle, dodged an arrest — said.

In his tome, the TV vet elaborates on the hilariously unfortunate experience. He also writes about swiping his V-card as a teenager with a hooker. “In the room, she indicated I should take off my clothes. This was happening. There'd been no fireworks. No tenderness. No talking,” he shares in A Life in Parts. “We never exchanged names. I'd had no idea what I was doing. It was just this stranger and me at the particular moment in time. As uncomplicated as it should be."
