Bryan Cranston gets plenty bad in "Breaking Bad," but he's about to get even badder. Cranston has been tapped to play the villain in the upcoming remake of "Total Recall." The remake, which will star Colin Farrell, seems to take a new approach from the original Schwarzenegger version, which starred Ahnold as a man whose implanted memories start to meld with his own reality. The new version seems to be a bit more political, and has Farrell as a man who believes himself to be a spy.
