His profile got a major lift in 2000 when he signed on to play Hal, opposite of Jane Kaczmarek's Lois, as the father of five young men, on the hit FOX sitcom Malcolm in the Middle. The role earned three supporting actor Emmy Award nominations for Cranston.

It was while searching for work soon after the finish of Malcolm in the Middle in 2006 that Cranston got his first take a gander at the Breaking Bad script content. The show's maker, Vince Gilligan, had initially met Cranston in 1998, when the two teamed up as director and character actor in a scene of The X-Files. As he started assembling the pieces for his new show, Gilligan continued returning to Cranston as the focal character, Walter White, a high school science instructor determined to have lung cancer who starts cooking meth so as to leave his family with enough cash after his passing.
