Bryan Cranston, one of the best actors on TV on one of the best shows on TV, has signed on to co-star in Andrew Stanton’s (WALL-E) adaptation of John Carter of Mars.  Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs series of sci-fi novels, the story follows John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), a Civil War soldier who is mysteriously transported to Mars.  Once there, he is caught in the middle of a war between various groups of Martians.  Heat Vision reports that Cranston will play a Civil War colonel who comes into conflict with Carter.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t sound like a very large role since I imagine most of the film will take place on some planet that is not ours.  The cast also includes Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton, Polly Walker, Thomas Haden Church, James Purefoy, Dominic West, and Mark Strong.

Cranston currently stars on Breaking Bad on AMC and won back-to-back Emmys for Best Actor in a Drama for his performance as mild-mannered meth kingpin Walter White.  It’s a must-watch show.  The first season is already on DVD, the second season will be available on DVD/Blu-ray on March 16th, and the third season premieres on March 21st.  You must catch up and then tune in.
