Some finally aged cheese that looks great in a suit (no matter what goofy poses he’s forced into) and always takes a charming picture. We want to be Bryan Cranston if we ever grow up.

    Squee! That second picture is TOTES ADORBS, as the youngin’s would say. I hope this Godzilla movie doesn’t suck, for his sake.

  • French_Swede

    He looks terrific! Hal (Malcolm’s dad) would be proud.

  • Miss wks

    If only a woman his age could get a cover with all those creases in her face….

    • BarniClaw

      This x 1,000. Although can you imagine how weird Helen Mirren or Judi Dench or Susan Sarandon would look in that last pose?

      • Jessi03

        Helen Mirren, definitely. Susan Sarandon, perhaps. Judi Dench, never. Although if she did, I would absolutely love to see it.

    • Gatto Nero

      … and without everyone snarking about how old she looks.

    • Judih1

      My sentiments exactly!

  • PastryGoddess

    humina humina, I have the tingles all over

  • mimi

    whew. mr. cranston, i’m ready

  • deathandthestrawberry

    He really is the best.

  • Jessica Freeman


  • Jacob Bowen

    The first pose is a “REALLY GQ?!?!?”…and the second pose makes me giggle.

  • MilaXX

    LOVE him!

  • vahtel

    Day-um, Bryan. I’ll come to poppa any damn day of the week.

  • formerlyAnon

    You just can’t go wrong with a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up.

    ETA: Boys, I’m not joking. Remember this.

    • melisaurus

      This is my boyfriend’s go to not-hoodie option. I like him so much. 😀

    • random_poster

      That’s so true, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why.

    • Alicia

      Maggie Alderson, one of my favourite writers, has a line something like “rolled to just above the wrist it is surgeon about to perform emergency appendectomy, rolled to just above the wrist it is mechanic about to perform emergency knicker-ectomy in the back of his van”. So true. So very true.

  • lunchcoma

    Love him. I hope the movie career works out for him, because I enjoy him in just about everything. He gives an interesting interview, too.

    • Qitkat

      I haven’t read the GQ version, but last Sunday’s Parade magazine had an excellent one.

      • lunchcoma

        Yes, that’s a great example of why I like him. So many celebrities who are described as “honest” or “upfront” are actually just assholes. Cranston manages to be sincere and occasionally blunt and still come off as a great guy. I mean, in the Parade interview, he talks about politics and admits to initially turning down the movie he’s currently promoting while still being likable.

  • KinoEye

    I want to be Bryan, too. It’s so cool that he started acting later in life with a community theater, and now he’s covering GQ. I love this man, whether he’s dancing around in tighty whities on Malcolm in the Middle, being a drug kingpin in BB, or just looking great in a suit.

  • ccinnc

    His head looks way too big on the cover, but I adore him and cant wait for Godzilla.

  • Tanya Wade

    Mmmmm, papacita. That first shot on the stool. Yep. Mama like.

  • Lisalady161

    And now for the aged beefcake section of sausage Friday. Thanks so much, TLo. This man makes my heart skip.

  • MartyBellerMask

    I has a happy now.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Last weekend I was flipping through the channels and found him in an old episode of Matlock (I think, or else it was Murder, She Wrote). I hardly recognized him, had to stop and watch a little just to make sure. He has aged well.

  • Julie Chase

    He’s delicious. He would go well with my wine.

  • Danielle

    This would be the perfect place for the Pennsatucky “hands to God” meme. YASSSS GURL.

  • Gatto Nero

    Do you mean “finely aged”? :-]
    His face looks wonderful. I wish women were allowed to age with the same dignity.


      I’m so with you.

  • The Versatile Chef


  • NBG

    Can we talk about how much I like the well-worn shoes in the last photo?

  • lynnlee

    I love him so much.

  • malarson2

    I love that cover – color selection, layout, and if course that great pic.

  • mjude

    I saw him in person years ago & that man is so handsome. love these photos.

    • mshesterp

      I have a friend who told me she thought he was ugly (when I was extolling his virtues after a BB marathon), and it took SO. MUCH. EFFORT. not to slap her. Cranston is dead sexy–you’d better recognize.

  • queeniethebold

    i hopelessly, helplessly heart him.

  • Qitkat

    Fine cheese. Fine wine. Real life etched on that handsome face. Super fine talent.
    Refreshing to look back at his acting path, to where he is today, all without the tabloid drama of those with mediocre talents, who always got more press.

  • MaggieMae


  • Malia C.

    He’ll always be Tim Whatley, the swinging dentist, to me.

    • Tuneful54

      I’ll ALWAYS have a thing for Dr. Whatley (Bryan).

      • Malia C.

        As well you should. He’s the original re-gifter! :)

        • Tuneful54

          “The way you worked on my filling, you were so…so gentle and so caring, and so…sensitive.” “Oh, Tuneful!”

    • EEKstl

      Yes! Who Jerry accused of converting to Judaism for the jokes! Classic.

      • Malia C.

        My favorite Tim Whatley moment has to be in “The Jimmy,” when he holds the nitrous oxide mask to face and inhales before putting the mask on Jerry. Cranston completely improvised that move out of nowhere.

        Jerry: “Where’s Jennifer today?”

        Whatley: “She’s over at Dr.Cessman’s office. We find it fun to swap now and then.”

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    I’ve got a bad daddy crush on that man.

  • Lori

    Love him. This Sausage Friday has totally made up for last week’s. That first poise is a bit of an eyeroll, but I love that suit.


    I’d love to see a female star photographed with all the lines in her face. Someday.

  • EEKstl

    Yum. Love. Him.

  • dschubba

    Would hit it.

  • AutumnInNY


  • Man Dala

    He looks sharp. But his head looks too big for his body in this photos. Not sure if it’s the angle or the fact that the clothes fit him tight (good fit though) and I’m not used to seeing him in this get up.

  • Therese Bohn


  • Mr. J.

    Oh yes. Yes.

  • Michelle Lim

    I growled in reaction to the pics. Yes, it is that HOT!!
