Bryan Cranston And James Franco Team Up For ‘Why Him?’ | Film News

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 10:  Actor  Bryan Cranston poses for a portrait at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association's Third Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards on June 10, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.  (Photo by Christopher Polk/Getty Images for CCTA)

 

Sounding not entirely unlike the plot for BBC Three sitcom Cuckoo, upcoming comedy Why Him? tells the tale of a father taking his family to visit his daughter, currently in attendance at Stanford University – when they arrive, they meet her boyfriend, a wannabe internet entrepreneur who the father immediately hates. Now the project, from I Love You Man director John Hamburg, has two names attached to star; Bryan Cranston as the father and James Franco as the obnoxious new boyfriend.

 

Cranston has made a name for himself playing dads – although this role is likely to be closer in tone to the lighthearted Malcolm in the Middle role than it is his career-defining performance in Breaking Bad. Cranston can be seen next in the awards-baiting Trumbo, which arrives in UK cinemas on January 22.

Hey, I'm Alistair! I've recently graduated from university with a pretty good journalism degree- but more importantly, I've been writing about movies for close to two years, both on my own blog (cinemole.wordpress.com) and over at Film Inquiry too! I'm currently working at a cinema until I fulfil my dream of being paid to write - which means unlimited free movies for me!
