Oh, this is huge! With numerous Emmys and an Oscar nomination under his belt, it’s no secret that Bryan Cranston can act. But when the Breaking Bad alum was discussing his new movie The Infiltrator on Monday, July 11, he showed off an impressive impersonation of none other than Donald Trump.
It all started when the All the Way star sat down for a chat with Today show’s Carson Daly. When asked if there was a historical figure he’d like to portray one day, the actor replied, “I’d like to play Donald Trump at some point. He’s huge!”
When the Voice host, 43, expressed his surprise at the choice, Cranston explained of the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, “He’s this Shakespearean character, this serio-tragic-comedic character. Who wouldn’t want to take a bite out of that?!”
The Malcolm in the Middle alum, 60, then nailed his impression of the former Apprentice star, right down to the finger-pointing and pouty lips: “‘It’s huge. Let me tell you something, this is what I can tell you: It is huuuge!’” he said as The Donald.
“I think it’s a caricature right now,” the actor did say of his impression, as spot on as it was.
But Cranston wasn’t done just yet. He launched into his take on Jerry Seinfeld next. “‘I’m offended as a comedian!’” he joked perfectly as the funnyman.
It’s no wonder the talented actor was able to do Seinfeld too. Cranston worked alongside the star on a handful of episodes of the hit sitcom when he portrayed dentist Tim Whatley from 1994 to 1997.
“Working on Seinfeld was like going to comedy camp,” he told Daly. “You are immersed in their genius — Jerry and Larry [David] — and the rest of the cast were brilliant.”
