BRYAN CRANSTON (Shannon) recently received his third consecutive Emmy® Win as ‘Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series' for his portrayal of ‘Walter White' on AMC's "Breaking Bad.” Cranston holds the honor of being the first actor in a cable series, and the second actor in the history of the Emmy® Awards to receive three consecutive wins. He was also previously nominated for a Golden Globe® and three Emmys® for his performance as ‘Hal' on FOX's "Malcolm in the Middle.”

Cranston's other television credits include a recurring role on "Seinfeld,” HBO's "From the Earth to the Moon,” and the mini-series, "I Know My First Name is Steven,” among others. He has also guest starred on programs such as "Chicago Hope,” "Touched By An Angel,” "The X-Files,” and many more.

On screen, Cranston recently completed production on Tony Kaye's "Detachment” opposite Adrien Brody and Marcia Gay Harden, and Brad Furman's "Lincoln Lawyer” opposite Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei.

Cranston will next star in Tom Hanks' "Larry Crowne” opposite Hanks and Julia Roberts, which will be released by Universal Pictures in 2011. He will also be seen in Andrew Stanton's "John Carter of Mars,” which will be released by Walt Disney Pictures on June 8, 2012, and the World War II drama "Red Tails,” written by George Lucas.

Cranston's other feature film credits include: "Saving Private Ryan,” "Little Miss Sunshine,” "Seeing Other People,” "That Thing You Do!”, "Clean Slate” and "Kissing Miranda,” just to name a few.

Born to a show business family and raised in Southern California, Cranston made his acting debut at the age of eight in a United Way commercial. It wasn't until he finished college that acting became a serious consideration. While on a cross-country motorcycle trip with his brother, he discovered community theater and began exploring every aspect of the stage. Soon, he was cast in a summer stock company.

Cranston returned to Los Angeles and quickly landed a role on the television movie, "Love Without End,” which led to his being signed as an original cast member of ABC's "Loving.”

He continues to pursue his love for theater as often as time permits. Cranston's theatrical credits include starring roles in "The God of Hell,” "Chapter Two,” "The Taming of the Shrew,” "A Doll's House,” "Eastern Standard,” "Wrestlers,” "Barefoot in the Park,” and "The Steven Weed Show,” for which he won a Drama-Logue Award.

Cranston is also a dedicated screenwriter and director. He wrote the original romantic drama "Last Chance” as a birthday gift for his wife, in which he also starred and directed. Cranston also directed several episodes of "Malcolm In The Middle,” the Comedy Central pilot "Special Unit” and several episodes of "Breaking Bad.”

Additionally, Cranston has produced an instructional DVD called KidSmartz, which is designed to educate families on how to stay safe from child abduction and Internet predators. KidSmartz raises money for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, by donating half the proceeds from sales.
