‘Breaking Bad’s’ Bryan Cranston Coming to Pabst Theater

Bryan, Walter, Heisenberg, award-winning actor, whatever you may call him, he’s coming to Milwaukee Oct. 22.

Four-time Emmy winner (and 10-time nominee), Tony winner and Oscar nominee Bryan Cranston will be taking the Pabst Theater stage on Oct. 22 to discuss his new book and life after Walter White.

Now a ripe 60 years of age, Cranston wasn’t nominated for a major acting award until 2002 – an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy for portraying the fatherly Hal in Malcolm in the Middle. Starting off late seems to have paid off for him, however. Business Insider reported that he banked nearly $2 million for the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad in 2013.

After landing gigs in big budget flicks like Argo in 2012, Godzilla in 2014 and the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, slated to release in 2017, Cranston has taken the time to reflect on what brought him to Hollywood stardom. Luckily for readers, he decided to share his revelations in a memoir, A Life in Parts, his authorial debut.

Cranston’s upcoming visit to Milwaukee will be another addition to the Pabst’s “A Conversation” series that has already seen guests Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, the attorneys from Netflix’s Making a Murderer.

Tickets are $35 and will go on sale next Friday, Aug. 26, at noon. They will be available for purchase here. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the conversation to follow at 8:30.
