The actor was spotted filming in Pasadena, California on Tuesday, looking unshaven and disheveled, as he walks from a park bench.
Jennifer Garner co-stars alongside Cranston in the movie, based on a novel of the same name, about a man who leaves his wife for an extended period of time. Here the two are on set, with Cranston looking decidedly more cleaned up.
According to Variety, Cranston agreed to do the drama for "scale." In other words, the minimum allowable pay under the SAG-AFTRA master contract. (Still far from peanuts, however, at over $3,000 a week.)
Meanwhile, in September, Cranston talked to ET Canada about being ready to leave Walter White behind.
"I don't have a yearning to go back into [Walter's] world because we just covered it completely I think," the Emmy-winner said of his Breaking Bad character. "It feels done."
The actor is, however, game for a Malcolm in the Middle reboot! Watch Cranston discuss the possibility of one in the video below.
