Bryan Cranston's 'Breaking Bad' Co-Star RJ Mitte Weighs in on 'The Upside' Controversy

By Pippa Raga

Representation in Hollywood has been something of a trending topic for a while now. Whether it's semi-recent, like cis actress Scarlet Johansson vying to star as a trans figure, or even more recent, like able-bodied Bryan Cranston being cast in the role of a paraplegic, there's a chance you've at least come across the notion that Hollywood should be striving to be more inclusive with their casting.

The news of his new movie, The Upside, has been making waves for its blatant casting oversight, with advocates stating the role would have been an incredible breakout for an actor with a disability who might not have a chance of succeeding otherwise in Hollywood. Meanwhile, several other actors have been vocal about Bryan's role and are working hard to change the way disabilities are portrayed in the film industry.
