Hollywood superstar Bryan Cranston discusses his role in cult director Wes Anderson’s latest masterwork, the brilliant Isle Of Dogs.
Having played one of the most iconic TV characters of all time in Walter White – the high school science teacher turned meth dealer in Breaking Bad – Bryan Cranston’s latest role finds him appearing in possibly 2018’s finest film, Isle Of Dogs.
The new movie from US auteur Wes Anderson (director of cult classics like Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Grand Budapest Hotel) is set in a dystopian future Japan, where the corrupt mayor of fictional city Megasaki has ordered all dogs to be quarantined on an offshore island to stop the spread of canine diseases such as 'snout fever.'
Cranston’s character, Chief, leads the pack of dogs on the island. A loner by nature, as well as being capable of great affection, he can also be very intimidating, and is frequently called on by the other dogs to lead the charge when there’s some fighting to be done.
