Bryan Cranston as Hal Wilkerson on Malcolm In The Middle

In news that’s sure to dredge up that “Walter White in Witsec” theory, Bryan Cranston recently told Entertainment Tonight Canada that he’d love to play Hal Wilkerson on Malcolm In The Middle once more. When asked which of his previous shows he’d return to, Cranston told ET Canada, “it’d be fun to pick up [Hal’s] clothes again and be fun and sweet and adorable and hapless and clueless and afraid of everything.”

Cranston played the clueless father of Frankie Muniz’s titular boy genius for seven seasons on the Fox sitcom, which also starred Jane Kaczmarek and Christopher Masterson. His Malcolm In The Middle wardrobe did include plenty of sequins and spandex, as well as a pelt, so we guess we can’t blame him. Naturally, Cranston was also asked if he’d reprise the role of Walter White, but he demurred, saying “I don’t have a yearning to go back into [Breaking Bad‘s] world because we just covered it completely, I think.” That is, until Vince Gilligan finds a way to slip him into Better Call Saul.
