And today in Bryan Cranston casting news – the ever-popular former Malcolm In The Middle actor is in talks to join Sean Penn’s Gangster Squad.

Cranston is riding one seriously high wave of popularity at the moment. Just yesterday he was in negotiations to join Ben Affleck’s third film Argo.

Now he’s in talks for a lead role in period crime thriller Gangster Squad, which has Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer at the helm.

Gangster Squad centres on the LA police department and its fight against crime in the 1940s. Cranston would play Max, a Texas-hailing cop with great ambitions.

Cranston’s numerous other projects include Larry Crowne, Contagion and Drive this year, while his 2012 slate features Rock Of Ages, Total Recall, John Carter and Argo.

If there was an award for 'actor with the most movie projects currently in production', you can bet Cranston would be the one to win it...
