Bryan Cranston was a real-life murder suspect

Los Angeles - Bryan Cranston was once a murder suspect.

The Breaking Bad actor - whose character Walter White has also been involved in murder plots - has recalled how he and his brother Kyle used to dislike a chef they worked with at a restaurant in Daytona Beach, Florida and after the cook was killed the police were keen to question them.

He said: "The head chef was a guy named Peter Wong. Now Peter was a good chef - and a horrible person.

"He was the first person I ever met who I just realised, 'Oh my God, I hate this guy.' I don't think I've ever hated someone before Peter Wong. He was not a nice guy. He was miserable and mean."

Bryan and Kyle ended up quitting the restaurant but a week later the chef was murdered and when the police went to question the waiters, the employees told them the two brothers hated the cook, which made them suspects.

Recalling what the police asked the waiters, he told The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: "Did anybody ever talk about hurting or killing Peter Wong?"

"And all the waiters are like, 'Yeah, all of us.'"

After quitting their jobs at the eatery, Bryan and Kyle went on a motorbiking trip up the east coast of America.

Speaking about the police, he said: "They were looking for us. We were somewhere north of the Carolinas."

The actor explains more about the tale in his new memoir A Life in Parts, in which he also recalled losing his virginity to a prostitute.

He wrote: "In the room, she indicated I should take off my clothes. This was happening. There'd been no fireworks. No tenderness. No talking. We never exchanged names. I'd had no idea what I was doing. It was just this stranger and me at the particular moment in time. As uncomplicated as it should be."
