HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Back-to-back Emmy® winner Bryan Cranston will serve double duty as director of the premiere episode, "No Mas," on the highly anticipated third season of "Breaking Bad." Joining Bryan for this interview is his Emmy-nominated "Breaking Bad" co-star Aaron Paul (also starring in "Big Love").
"Breaking Bad" follows Walter White (Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who discovers he is dying of lung cancer. Desperate to secure his family's financial future, Walt teams up with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), to turn a used RV into a mobile drug lab.
In addition to the numerous accolades Bryan Cranston has earned for his performance as Walt, "Breaking Bad" received an Emmy nomination for Best Drama last season and has popped up on some of the most prestigious top ten lists of 2009 (TIME, Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, Associated Press) and even landed on the San Francisco Chronicle's, "10 Best TV Shows of the Decade." iTunes chose "Breaking Bad" Season 2 as the "Best Drama of 2009."

Cranston's other feature film credits include "Saving Private Ryan," "Little Miss Sunshine," "Seeing Other People," and "That Thing You Do," to name a few.
