"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston says he will move from the U.S. to Canada if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States on Nov. 8.
Cranston joins other celebrities including Lena Dunham, Chelsea Handler, and Barbara Streisand who have said they would leave the U.S. if the Republican nominee wins the election being held next week.
"Absolutely. I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won't," Cranston told The Bestseller Experiment podcast on Sunday. "It wouldn't be a vacation. I’d be an expatriate."
Although he doesn’t want to see Trump as President, Cranston said he might want to play him if "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan writes the part in a movie of Trump’s life.
“He’s such a tragic Shakespearean character,” Cranston said of Trump. “He’s comedic because of the tragedy of this man’s soul. The delusion that he has, the supreme narcissism. In the States, there will be classes taught on this election period. There will be books written, movies made because of the anomaly he presented.”
The last presidential candidate from a major party never to have held political office was Dwight D. Eisenhower, but he was a general in World War II who had gained tremendous respect from the American people for his military service and his part in defeating Germany and Japan. Zachary Taylor and Ulysses S. Grant were other military figures who went on to become U.S. presidents without holding other elected offices.
