During The Bestseller Experiment podcast, the question was broached if Trump was elected as the next president would Cranston take an extended vacation to Vancouver?
“Absolutely,” Cranston said. “I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.” He added “It wouldn’t be a vacation,” he added. “I’d be an expatriate.”
Surprisingly, after these harsh words he had for Trump, he did say, “I believe Donald Trump loves the country. I truly believe that, and I know he does.” The 60-year-old Emmy winner explained that he and Trump simply have different outlooks as to where the country needs to go.
Cranston did say he would like to have a discussion with Trump supporters. “So if I were to meet a Trump supporter, the first thing I would do is I would want to discuss, ‘What are the issues that led you to that decision?’ I would want to know about that, not to make them wrong, but just to understand.”
This isn’t anything new. Hollywood actors are predominantly Democratic and liberal. The actor doesn’t seem to have a personal vendetta against Trump, just different views on certain topics regarding the county.
Later in the podcast, Cranston said, “There will be books written, movies made,” he continued. “I’m telling you, there will be theatrical productions about Donald Trump because of the anomaly that he presented.” The podcast host asked the actor if he would ever consider portraying Trump on the silver screen.
He calmly said, “For me to play someone like Donald Trump, I would first need to have some time to calm down from him because I do have a judgment of him, and it’s virtually impossible to play someone that you have a judgment on because then you’re slanted.”
He concluded the podcast, adding, “I need to come at it from a place of neutrality so that I can build a character and justify what I say, what I do, at all times. It’s hard for me to imagine trying to justify what this man has said and done.”
