Bryan Cranston playing an elderly superhero with prostate problems? What’s not to like? USA Today has a new look at Titanium Rex, who the “Breaking Bad” actor voices in Crackle’s upcoming stop-motion animated comedy “SuperMansion.”
A satire of comic book do-gooders, “SuperMansion” hails from creators Zeb Wells and Matthew Senreich of “Robot Chicken” fame and began life as a pilot for Adult Swim in 2013 titled “Übermansion” (which you can view here). It chronicles Rex and the rest of long-in-the-tooth hero team The League of Freedom, who all live together in the same mansion as they attempt to stay relevant in the modern world.
This new iteration features Seth Green (“Robot Chicken”) and Keegan Michael Key (“Key & Peele”) reprising their roles from the pilot, along with scene-stealing funny lady Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street).
“SuperMansion,” from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, is executive produced by Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Eric Towner and Bryan Cranston, the latter of whom is also developing the black & white detective show parody “Tightrope” for Crackle, which is Sony’s digital entertainment platform.
Cranston will next be seen in Jay Roach’s Dalton Trumbo biopic Trumbo, playing the famous blacklisted screenwriter, and is currently filming Brad Furman’s thriller The Infiltrator and James Franco’s John Steinbeck adaptation In Dubious Battle.
