Bryan Cranston Circling Ben Affleck’s Argo

Bryan Cranston is in talks to join Argo star Ben Affleck in the Ben Affleck–directed Argo, a movie about the 1979 Tehran hostage crisis. Affleck, as Vulture first reported, plans to have Argo's entire ensemble live in a makeshift "safe house" together for one month prior to the start of production. Thus far, then, that house will probably include: Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Adam Arkin, and John Goodman. Since George Clooney is producing, perhaps he'll be allowed to drop by. Whichever celebrity reporter from a men's magazine manages to embed himself in this project is going to have lots of fun. [HR]
