Bryan Cranston to join Ben Affleck's ARGO?
Bryan Cranston is in talks to join the cast of Ben Affleck's Argo. He would join the drama that already includes, Affleck, Alan Arkin and John Goodman about the 1979 Tehran hostage crisis. George Clooney and Grant Heslov are producing along with David Klawans (Nacho Libre).
Chris Terrio penned the screenplay and is also helping produce the film. Argo is based on Joshuah Bearman's Wired Magazine article, “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans from Tehran” about "how the CIA and the Canadian government teamed to rescue six U.S. dipomats who'd been taken hostage at the American embassy by a group of Iranians in 1979. The CIA's ruse involved the explanation that the six hostages were actually a Hollywood film crew scouting a movie titled "Argo," and using those fake identities, they were able to flee the country."
I am happy to see Cranston getting more film roles which he deserves. We will keep you posted when this becomes official. What are your thoughts?
