Opening in theaters on August 3rd is the highly anticipated new film Total Recall, which is a remake of the beloved Arnold Schwarzenegger movie that was loosley based on the story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" by author Phillip K. Dick. The new film was directed by Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) and closer resembles the original source material rather than the now classic '90s movie. Total Recall stars Colin Farrell (Fright Night) as Quaid/Hauser, Kate Beckinsale (Underworld: Awakening) as his wife Lori, and Jessica Biel (The A-Team) as Melina, as well as Bokeem Woodbine (The Rock), Bill Nighy (Arthur Christmas), John Cho (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas), and Bryan Cranston (AMC's Breaking Bad, Drive) as Cohaagen.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with three-time Emmy Winner Bryan Cranston to talk about his work on Total Recall. The veteran actor discussed the new film, why he wanted to do it, choosing projects after the success of Breaking Bad, his disappointment over not getting the role of Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, why the new Total Recall does not take place on Mars, his character's relationship to Colin Farrell's Quaid, playing the villain, being in a big science fiction movie, and his love for three-breasted women.
