Bryan Cranston Acted His Way Through This Grueling Hot Wing Challenge

James Franco and Bryan Cranston are two of Hollywood’s most prolific actors, and they did a damn good job of acting like these hot wings weren’t destroying them inside.
Taking First We Feast’s Hot Ones challenge, Franco and Cranston went through five fiery chicken wings, each hotter than the next, but kept their cool despite having to take big swigs of milk the whole time.

Franco looked to be in trouble after the first wing, which was covered in nothing more than your run-of-the-mill Sriracha hot sauce, but he somehow made it through all the way.

Cranston was as smooth as the great Heisenberg, showing very little discomfort throughout the contest.

The two stars talked about a variety of subjects, from boyfriends trying to win over a girlfriend’s father (Like in their movie “Why Him”), to working in the restaurant industry.

You know these two are great actors when they can eat wings that are 550,000 Scoville heat units and barely break a sweat.


Listen to Bryan Cranston Narrate ‘You Have to F*cking Eat,’ a Kids Book for Adults


When LeVar Burton read the “Go the Fuck to Sleep,” a kids-themed book for adults, the Internet broke. Adam Mansbach, the author of the book, now has another follow-up to his 2011 hit entitled “You Have to Fucking Eat” and it looks like he snagged another big name to narrate it.

Readers may remember Bryan Cranston from the popular Fox sitcom Malcolm in the Middle. Cranston has since made a few guest appearances on other shows, though we feel like we’ve might have left out a career highlight for the talented actor.

The book, like its predecessor, utilizes some colorful language to encourage children eat their meals.

Cranston joins the high-caliber selection of actors asked to narrate the Mansbach books. Along with Burton, Cranston’s colleagues include Morgan Freeman and Samuel L. Jackson.

Check out a brief preview of the audiobook which is also available for a free download through the next month.
