Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad" star, shared in an interview on "The Tonight Show" that he was once a real-life murder suspect in the 1970s.
In a report from Business Insider Singapore, Cranston told Jimmy Fallon, he and his brother worked in a Polynesian restaurant known as the Hawaiian Inn In Daytona Beach, Florida. He said everyone hated the chef named Peter Wong.
"During the waiter meetings, we'd have a little food and they'd tell us what to push on the menu. And we'd all talk about how each one of us would kill Peter Wong if we had the opportunity," Cranston said.
Daily Mail reported that he was under suspicion when the chef was killed.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, he said, "He was the first person I ever met who I just realized, 'Oh my God, I hate this guy.' I don't think I've ever hated someone before Peter Wong. He was not a nice guy. He was miserable and mean."
The actor recalled that he and his co-workers often joked about killing the chef. After the murder, the police interrogated the restaurant staff.
According to Cranston, the officers asked them if anybody ever talked about hurting or killing the chef, in which they responded "Yeah, all of us."
A week before the murder happened, Cranston and his brother had quit working in the restaurant. His co-workers told the police how the brothers hated Wong.
"They were looking for us! They put an APB out on our motorcycles and looking for us. We were somewhere north of the Carolinas," said Bryan. He and his older brother Kyle avoided arrest.
Bryan Cranston promoted his new memoir A Life In Parts. Additionally, he has three movie projects which will be released by next year. These are The Masterpiece, Power Rangers and Last Flag Flying.
The 60-year-old actor has been married to Robin Dearden since 1989.
