It's no Frankenstein, but the story behind the story is almost the same. When hurricane Sandy interrupted production on the film Cold Comes The Night in upstate New York, it left the assembled cast and crew with nothing to do for a while. Bryan Cranston had an idea for passing the time: a contest in which production assistants could submit a script, and he would star in a quick production of the best one.
Brandon Polanco's story was selected, and filming began immediately. The result is the short film Writer's Block. May be NSFW for language and implied sex. It features a lot of Cranston walking around frustrated, showing his thoughts on his face, which we know he's good at from watching Breaking Bad. -via Buzzfeed
