Bryan Cranston turns Major League Baseball into a play in TBS promo

Posted on

Bryan Cranston

Thanks to Breaking Bad, we all know Bryan Cranston can be a serious actor—but it’s nice to see his lighter Malcolm in the Middle comedic chops again from time to time.

Avid baseball fan Cranston stars in a commercial for TBS, touting his fictional one-man show that dramatizes the entire MLB postseason. Cranston makes fun of himself, the serious actor, as he smashes a pie in his own face as an ode to the Baltimore Orioles postgame tradition, and delivers a poignant rendition of ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game.’ The commercial also has an appearance by ballerina Misty Copeland, who tries to teach Cranston some light-footed ballet moves, only to have Pedro Martinez look on in disgust.
