Bryan Cranston’s one-man MLB show


Bryan Cranston's next career move is a surefire hit.

Bryan Cranston’s next career move is a surefire hit.

How does Bryan Cranston follow up a banner year after winning a Tony for his riveting performance as LBJ in All the Way on Broadway, and an Emmy for the legendary TV show Breaking Bad?

In a word, baseball.

That’s right, La Cranston is doing a one-man show about major league baseball for TBS. Just in time for the post season playoffs.

With true Cranston “pow and wow” verve, he brings intense passion and pith to the multitude of big league players he portrays in the show. His performance is gutsier than the dentist on Seinfeld and even grittier than Hal in Malcolm in the Middle.

It may be a cliché to say La Cranston hits a home run with this performance, but actually he does hit a home run, literally and figuratively. And his rendition of Take Me Out To The Ball Game, is like no other.

Watch the clip below and see if you don’t feel the love for America’s favorite pastime via America’s favorite character actor. Kudos to him for acknowledging the inspiration of the famous Mr. B, who is often imitated by over-paid relief pitchers, but never properly thanked.

There are also two special guests in the video, one is a famous musician, and the other is a legendary MLB player. I won’t spoil things and reveal who the player is, except to say that he pitched for the Red Sox, his first name is Spanish for Peter, and his last name rhymes with Bartinez.

I don’t know what award Bryan Cranston could be given for this daring one-man show, but let’s just say he played things much better than the Red Sox and Yankees did this year.

Batter up!
