The upcoming remake of Total Recall, actor Bryan Cranston will take over as the antagonist Cohaagen, the character originally portrayed by Ronny Cox in director Paul Verhoeven's 1990 adaptation and a name that fans of the original probably still reminisce being yelled in Arnold Schwarzenegger's accent. Cranston has been appearing in more and more movie roles since debuting as Walter White on AMC's critically acclaimed drama Breaking Bad, and, during an interview with Reelz, explained that landing the role was as simple as a phone call.
"I was working on Breaking Bad and I got a call that the director Len Wiseman wanted to talk to me to be about possibly playing Cohaagen in the remake of Total Recall," Cranston told Reelz's Patrick Stinson. "And I said, 'Ok.'"
