Bryan Cranston lived his own version of How To Get Away With Murder. He's now promoting his book, "A Life in Parts," which includes a pretty gruesome story he's told before and shared in great detail last night on "The Tonight Show."
Jimmy Fallon asked the "Breaking Bad" alum about the time he and his brother were both real-life murder suspects. Cranston explained that he and his bro had taken a two-year motorcycle ride across the country in the 1970s. One time in Daytona Beach, to pick up some extra money, they got waiter jobs at a Polynesian restaurant called the Hawaiian Inn. The head chef was a guy named Peter Wong. That's where things got messy. As Cranston explained...
You can probably see where this is going.
"Peter was a good chef and a horrible person. He was the first person I ever met who I just realized 'Oh my god, I hate this guy!' I don't think I ever hated someone before Peter Wong. ... He was miserable and mean, he would shout and yell at you. So during the waiter meetings before every night, we'd have a little food and they'd tell us what to push on the menu, and we'd all talk about how each one of us would kill Peter Wong, if we had the opportunity. So I said, I'm just thinking that I would slice him up, nice tender slices, something like that."
"So we're joking around this whole thing. Well, the season comes to an end, my brother and I hop on our motorcycles and we take off again to go up north. And policemen come into the Hawaiian Inn and gather everybody who's left of the staff, and they say, 'We'd like to ask you about Peter Wong.' Everybody's wondering what's going on. 'Has anybody ever talked about hurting or killing Peter Wong?' All the waiters are like 'Yeah, all of us.' They said, 'Anybody who is no longer here who talked about killing Peter?' 'Well, the Cranston brothers.' 'When did they leave?' 'Well, they left about a week ago on their motorcycles.' 'That fits the timeline.' Because Peter was murdered and they were looking for us."
They put an APB out on the brothers and everything. Could've been its own movie. (Where was the local chemistry teacher at the time?)
Cranston and Fallon also played a more fun game called "Cranst-In or Cranst-Out" to describe what they like:Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
