Bryan Cranston says he would be down "if it was a great idea."

Fans famously know Bryan Cranston for his iconic role as Walter White in Breaking Bad. He even just reprised the role for a Super Bowl LVII commercial for PopCorners along with Aaron Paul, who reprised his role as Jesse Pinkman. However, before the hit AMC series, he was known as the hilarious father on Malcolm in the Middle. His character, Hal, worshipped his wife and was a laid-back father who was awful at disciplining his children. Fans loved him on the series and relished in his ability to be simultaneously the best and the worst (at times).

The sitcom could possibly be getting a new film. Cranston said he would only be interested in partaking "if it was a great idea." Cranston told The Independent that “it’s a possibility." He admitted that he had recently spoken with Malcolm in the Middle’s creator, Linwood Boomer. “He said he would think about it, and he got his writers together. If they can come up with a great idea, a legitimate idea, then he’ll pursue it. But if not, then nah. I don’t need a job. I’ve got plenty of jobs. I don’t need it, but I’d want it if it was a great idea.”

Cranston spent seven seasons on Malcolm in the Middle playing Hal. He acted opposite Frankie Muniz, who played Malcolm. He was also famously paired with Jane Kaczmarek, who played his wife, Lois. Cranston described his time on Malcolm in the Middle as "seven years of glory." He continued, elaborating that “Going to work every day and making yourself and others laugh. That was my job.” He looks back on his time on the show fondly, explaining that reminiscing about the seven seasons is like getting to kiss that really pretty girl all those years ago.

This is not the first time that Cranston has discussed the possibility of a Malcolm in the Middle reboot film. In January, Cranston spoke to E! News about the possibility of returning to the character, Hal. He said, “There was some talk about the possibility of doing, like, a reunion movie of Malcolm in the Middle. We had such a great family on that, and I certainly would be open to that if there was a good idea that came up — like, ‘Oh, that would be fantastic to explore what happened to this family 20 years later.’ I can’t believe it’s already that, but that would be fun to do.”
