The Cast
Of Wes Anderson's Isle Of Dogs Only Did Two Days Of Work
Bryan Cranston was in more demand than ever after starring in “Breaking Bad” and was offered a prominent role in the “Isle of Dogs,” giving Cranston a chance to work with one of Hollywood’s best modern directors, Wes Anderson. While Cranston is used to spending many hours on his roles, the actor revealed that he and his fellow actors only had to work two days for the “Isle of Dogs.”
Anderson explained the unique recording process, saying, “This one we started with a recording session with, we had Bryan Cranston and Edward Norton and Bill Murray and Bob Balaban and those guys, we spent a couple of days, the four of them and me, together.” Cranston described the experience as relaxed and shared his admiration for Anderson’s work.
The actor said, “It’s like we went into a bakery and got a croissant. We stayed very ... ‘I’ll take that and that. Great, thank you.’ And he’s like, there, baking. He has a very different perspective on it because he has to have the meta vision of it, and we come in with a little slice.” Although the voice recording was done in only a few days, the film’s production took years to actually complete.
