Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening may play retirees in their upcoming film, Jerry and Marge Go LargeBut don’t count on them to walk away from the limelight anytime soon.
“Right now, I feel the same way. I feel more free at work than ever before,” Benning told ET’s Matt Cohen about the future of his career. “I love the craft, I always have. I loved all the training I got to do a long time ago. It kind of sits on your shoulder. The more training you get, the more I get away from it.” I do, the more free I feel.”
She says of the potential stopping point, “When I get to the point where it’s not just a sense of excitement, the same feeling I first started with, with a group of people living in a room who are together. Starting a project.. Actors, generally speaking, get closer really fast and I love that. I love that exchange. We all jump in together because we know it’s work. We usually play people who are deeply connected in some way or the other – that’s the hit. But as long as it is, I want to keep going.”
Cranston echoed his co-star’s sentiments, saying that as long as he is happy, he will continue to act.
“Me too,” he says. “I mean, as long as it brings happiness, I’ll still be there. And then our job is to really believe like that kid and then the more you can dive into it and believe in yourself, the more That is where it presents itself in others.”
In the upcoming Paramount+ movie, Jerry and Marge Go LargeCranston and Benning play a couple, Jerry and Marge Selby, who are looking for excitement after retiring. The couple suffer a major setback when they find a flaw in the lottery system – because of Jerry’s numbers – and have to work it out in favor of their family and friends.
“It’s such a good story because he didn’t cheat. Jerry found a flaw in the lottery because it was designed and it’s a number, so he was someone who could quickly look up and figure out, ‘ Wait a minute, is this a loophole?'” says Benning. “What I love so much about the story is that they weren’t cheating or scam. They played it honestly.”
While his characters may celebrate and splurge a bit, the actor recalls how he spent his first major amount of money during his career.
“My wife and I would just go to a special dinner,” Cranston says. “And we didn’t go crazy because as actors, it’s never a straight climb. It’s always up and down and we need to be protective of downtime. So, save your money, you don’t know what It’s going to happen. You don’t know how long it’s going to be until you do the next thing, and we were kind of involved.”
For Bening, his love was a passionate thanks to his parents, who helped him through his early stages of acting and supported him at every stage of his career.
“I paid my parents back for grad school because I went to a conservatory after I went to university, and it wasn’t cheap,” she says. “And I remember the satisfaction of being able to write a check and pay my parents back and that’s so satisfying.”
