Actor Bryan Cranston had plenty of kind things to say about Donald Trump during a recent interview, calling the Republican presidential candidate “refreshing” and praising his candor.

Initially joking with “The Nerdist” host Chris Hardwick about the probability of a President Trump, the “Breaking Bad” star soon started sharing his true feelings about the real estate mogul and his role as the enfant terrible of the 2016 election cycle.

“I actually like his candor,” Cranston told Hardwick, pointing to Trump’s penchant for calling his opponents out as “losers” and “idiots.”

“There’s something so refreshing about shaking up that world that is all about being handled,” Cranston continued. “And here comes this loose cannon who has terrible ideas and would be a horrible president, but there’s something great about his ‘I don’t give a s—‘ attitude that really kind of keeps others honest. I think it’s a surprise benefit to the country, actually.”

“I hope he stays in for a long, long time and just collapses that whole tent of his,” Cranston said.

The award-winning star of stage and screen is certainly not alone in believing Trump to be a breath of fresh air.

Noted liberal talk show host Bill Maher also referred to Trump as “refreshing” during a recent interview.

One person who is likely to disagree with Cranston, however, is his former “Breakign Bad” co-star Aaron Paul, who recently took to Twitter to fire back at Trump with the businessman’s own favorite insult.

“Dear Donald Trump, You’re an idiot,” Paul tweeted.
