Bryan Cranston stars in baseball one-man show for TV commercial

Tuesday September 16th, 2014

Here's Cranston in a commercial for MLB on TBS: 

Having already shown impressive range by playing a sitcom dad and a drug kingpin, Cranston continues to display his versatility by portraying members of several MLB teams, and even on air personalities. 

He's already brought Lyndon B. Johnson to the stage. Is it too much to think baseball is far off?
