Any Canadian who’s spoken to some Americans recently has probably heard at least a few of them promise to move to Canada if a certain bombastic billionaire winds up being elected as the next U.S. president — and we can now count Bryan Cranston among them.
Speaking with The Bestseller Experiment podcast, the “Breaking Bad” Emmy-winner was asked whether he plans to take an extended holiday in Vancouver if Donald Trump wins the election on Nov. 8. “Absolutely,” he declared. “I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
However, Cranston pointed out that if that were to happen, he wouldn’t so much be visiting Canada as he would moving there permanently. “It wouldn’t be a vacation. I’d be an expatriate,” added Cranston, joining the ranks of such stars as Lena Dunham, Chelsea Handler and Barbra Streisand, who have also vowed to head north if Trump lands in the White House.
In the interview, Cranston admits that the Trump phenomenon is an “anomaly” that will no doubt be studied by future generations, saying he believes university courses will be taught about Trump’s political rise.
“There will be books written, movies made. I’m telling you, there will be theatrical productions about Donald Trump,” added Cranston, “because of the anomaly that he presented.”
