“Absolutely, I would definitely move,” the “Breaking Bad” star said this week on “The Bestseller Experiment” podcast. “It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

The 60-year-old performer, who has portrayed former President Lyndon B. Johnson on stage and TV, repeated a wish he’s expressed before: to one day play the New York real estate mogul.

“He’s such a tragic, Shakespearean character. And he’s comedic as well because of the tragedy of this man’s soul,” Cranston said. “But a beautiful character, an amazing character.”

“I’m telling you, there will be theatrical productions about Donald Trump because the anomaly that he presented,” Cranston said. “That being said, for me to play someone like Donald Trump, I’ll first need to have some time to calm down from him because I do have a judgment of him and it’s virtually impossible to play someone you have a judgment on because then you’re slanted.

“I need to come at it from a place of neutrality so I can build a character and justify what I say, what I do, at all times. It’s hard for me to justify what this man has said and done.”
