"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston has some ideas about who should play Willie Nelson, if a biopic was ever made.

When asked if there was a musician Cranston would be interested in playing in a biopic, he responded with the legendary singer-songwriter Willie Nelson due to the fact they have similar features.

"Willie Nelson comes to mind. The hair and the beard. I think there’s some physical resemblance. He’s very old and wrinkled, and I can relate to that. So, I wouldn’t have to wear a lot of makeup," Cranston said during an interview with NME.

The 66-year-old actor continued to list reasons why he admires Nelson.

"Willie’s had a fascinating career – as a writer and as a performer, and as a free speech person, being anti-war and on the forefront of hemp [culture]. That’s kind of interesting to me, even though I don’t vibe with that stuff. I don’t like smoking, it just doesn’t do it for me," Cranston admitted to the media outlet.

Last week, Nelson spoke candidly about smoking marijuana with rapper Snoop Dogg in Amsterdam.

Football fans may also recognize Cranston in a Super Bowl ad, as he reprised his popular character, Walter White, with "Breaking Bad" co-star, Aaron Paul, for a PopCorners commercial.

"Breaking Bad" successfully aired for five seasons, which ran from 2008 until 2013. A spin-off of the drama series "Better Call Saul" was created two years later.

Cranston’s character in "Breaking Bad" is a high school chemistry teacher who experiences hardship outside his classroom. While mainly dealing with financial problems, he made the decision to desperately start a meth lab to support his wife and children.
