Before Bryan Cranston played the meth-selling, chemistry-teaching Walter White, he was known as the father figure on the Fox comedy "Malcom in the Middle" (2000), above left. Cranston also played a wacky dentist on "Seinfeld" (1989), an annoying neighbor on "The King of Queens" (1998) and a bow-tie wearing boss on "How I Met Your Mother" (2005). The Emmy Award-winning actor found time to star in the historical drama thriller "Argo" (2012) as a CIA director responsible for rescuing six captive Americans.
