Bryan Cranston, whose film career has gone ballistic since taking on the role of Walter White in AMC's 'Breaking Bad,' is in talks to join 'World War Z,' a post-apocalyptic thriller starring Brad Pitt.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cranston's part is small but flashy, which we don't doubt since the actor has such a full schedule: He's just finished 'Drive,' 'Contagion,' 'Leave,' 'Red Tails' and 'John Carter' and is working on 'Rock of Ages,' 'Total Recall' and 'Argo.' Whew!

'World War Z' is an adaptation of Max Brooks' 2006 novel, 'World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War,' in which a UN representative conducts first-person interviews with survivors of the great zombie war that almost wiped out humankind.
