Sneaky Pete will land on Amazon later this week, and Bryan Cranston spoke about the new series which he helped create at the TCA’s. Fans should not expect to see him be like Walter White on the new series. He starred on Breaking Bad in that role for its entire run.
“Whereas Walter White is a good person who devolves to being a bad person, in this case, Pete is a bad person. He does steal from people, but there’s a possibility that he could evolve to become a good person.”
Cranston also revealed that the series is somewhat autobiographical. He said that:
“I was a sneaky kid, and wrote about in a book recently (A Life in Parts). It was cathartic to be able to go, ‘Oh, I did that too.’ But there are many example of things that I was circumventing accountability in and finding my way through. And it’s OK if you’re a teenager from a broken home and you have no father as a mentor and your mother is becoming an alcoholic before your own eyes.”
