Interviews with Bryan Cranston—as these types of things with Hollywood actors rarely do—always reveal some sort of weird insight into his life or mind. The guy has actually had an interesting life and has some truly deep things to say. Remember the time he lost his virginity in Amsterdam's Red Light District? When Cranston talks, we listen, dammit!

During an interview with BBC, Cranston talked at length about America's real-life dystopian villain, Donald Trump.

"I think the presence of Donald Trump is actually in the long run a good thing," he said. "Because it could be a wakeup call to what could be a disaster."

The interviewer then asks him if he'd ever play Trump:

"Yes. I'm fascinated by Trump because he's a classic tragic Shakespearean character. What's so amazing about Donald Trump is that he's unabashedly a demagogue. He talks about issues and problems and if you listen to that you would think that every thing is horrible. He also doesn't present any solutions."

To further prove his point, Cranston does his own Trump impression, which is actually very good. Maybe someday a long time from now, after Trump loses and the damage he's done to this country is repaired, Cranston will play Trump in a film, win his first Oscar for Best Actor, then look back and realiSe he was right when he predicted that Trump would do some good for the world after all.
