Bryan Cranston Bryan Cranston

Though Bryan Cranston is best known these days for his work in drama, the Breaking Bad star still loves a good laugh — especially one from a show that feels very familiar to him. 

"Not since my days on Malcolm in the Middle have I seen a show that can make you laugh out loud and at the same time resonate on some deeper level [like Modern Family does]," Cranston tells "Extremely difficult to do because if the audience smells a 'message' in an episode — game over, show loses. This program has it all... wonderful writing, fantastic actors. Bravo."

Modern Family
isn't the only show the three-time Emmy winner, who can next be seen in March's The Lincoln Lawyer, turns on for a few chuckles. Sharing his TV watchlist with, the actor says he also tunes in to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart ("intelligent, funny, current"), 30 Rock ("at the top of their game in smart, sophisticated, adult humor. Maybe that's why it's always been a ratings-challenged show. Can a show be too smart? Not for me."), Mr. Show, the '90s sketch comedy series starring Bad co-star Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, and Family Guy.
