CRANSTON TALKS ABOUT LAST CHANCE AND THE MAKING OF BREAKING BAD IN MOVIE WRAPS
NEW YORK, February 20, 2009 � Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston (Emmy for Best Male Lead Actor in BREAKING BAD) brings two of his directorial debuts to WE tv and AMC. His film directorial debut is the romantic drama LAST CHANCE � a passion project that he wrote as a valentine to his wife, actress Robin Dearden, who stars in the film along with him. LAST CHANCE premieres on WE tv on Saturday, March 7 at 11pm ET � the night before the season 2 premiere of the critically-acclaimed award-winning series BREAKING BAD on AMC (Sunday, March 8), in which Cranston makes his television drama directorial debut with the opening episode. During movie wraps, WE tv viewers hear from Cranston firsthand on why he made LAST CHANCE and get behind-the-scenes scoop on BREAKING BAD.
"I wrote Last Chance for Robin (who stars in the movie) because I had the sense to marry her. I directed Last Chance because I didn't have the sense not to," said Cranston. "Romance could be the best and last chance for a woman buffeted by life�s disappointments, in this tale of a love that is lost, and one that is found."
LAST CHANCE tells the story of Lauren, a woman in a small town who�s been stripped of all aspirations. Resigned to her life with a louse of a husband, she pragmatically trudges about her everyday existence with no hope, except that her kids may have a better life. But when she makes the acquaintance of Sam, an older man who has lived his entire life driven by his dreams, she might just find the inspiration to truly live to the fullest.
