Los Angeles: ‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston has revealed that he was once a murder suspect.
Cranston, whose character Walter White in the crime drama TV series has also been involved in murder plots, has recalled how he and his brother Kyle used to dislike a chef they worked with at a restaurant in Daytona Beach, Florida and after the cook was killed, the police were keen to question them, reports usmagazine.com.
“The head chef was a guy named Peter Wong. Now Peter was a good chef — and a horrible person,” Cranston said on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
“He was the first person I ever met who I just realised, ‘Oh my God, I hate this guy.’ I don’t think I’ve ever hated someone before Peter Wong. He was not a nice guy. He was miserable and mean,” he added.
Bryan and Kyle ended up quitting the restaurant, but a week later the chef was murdered and when the police went to question the waiters, the employees told them the two brothers hated the cook, which made them suspects.
Recalling what the police asked the waiters, Cranston said: “‘Did anybody ever talk about hurting or killing Peter Wong?’ And all the waiters are like, ‘Yeah, all of us’.”
“They (the police officials) were looking for us. We were somewhere north of the Carolinas”.
