The actor admitted he’s planning to do the thing we all joke about every election season: head straight for the border if his candidate doesn’t win. Though, in Trump’s case, who can even blame him?
He let his master plan slip during an interview on The Bestseller Experiment, a podcast covering the upcoming election.
“It wouldn’t be a vacation, I’d be an expatriate. Absolutely. I would definitely move!” Cranston said. “It is not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
This election season has sparked a little more talk about America’s northern neighbor than usual. From fake ads selling tiny Canadian towns as potential new homes for American defectors to dating sites specifically for matching politics-weary Americans with Canadians who might (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) help them get citizenship, the U.S. has probably never been so collectively enamored with the idea of crossing the border for good.
The good news is that even if Cranston doesn’t want to be anywhere near Trump, he still kind of likes the idea of playing him at some point — but only if Breaking Bad writer Vince Gilligan is involved in creating the part.
“He’s such a tragic Shakespearean character,” Cranston explained. “He’s comedic because of the tragedy of this man’s soul. The delusion that he has, the supreme narcissism. In the States, there will be classes taught on this election period. There will be books written, movies made because of the anomaly he presented.”
