The stars shone a little brighter in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
The celebrity softball game as part of MLB All-Star Week featured actors Rob Lowe, JK Simmons, musicians Bad Bunny and Action Bronson, and more.
But one familiar face stole the show.
Actor Bryan Cranston, the critically acclaimed actor best known for his role as Walter White in ‘Breaking Bad’, has revealed why he is one of Hollywood’s most beloved celebrities.
The 66-year-old rocked an Albuquerque Isotopes hat, referencing the hit AMC series, and also belted out the “Breaking Bad” and “Malcolm in the Middle” theme songs during his appearances on set.
Cranston, like Walter White, was not afraid of confrontation.
In the final game of the annual celebrity event, softball legend Jennie Finch threw a questionable infield pitch at Cranston, resulting in a hit. Los Angeles was unhappy with the referee’s call.
“It was in,” Cranston shouted, throwing dirt at the judge’s feet. “You’re stealing our game!”
Despite actor JK Simmons’ calming efforts to separate the two, Cranston was escorted out after coming out with a bucket of gum and throwing the candy all over the field.
Cranston almost missed the game due to injury.
During batting practice, Grammy Award-winning singer Anthony Ramos hit Cranston in the right shoulder on a base hit.
“It’s definitely going to bruise,” Cranston said after recovering. “I can be more of a cheerleader in this game.”
Of course, the larger-than-life actor was a good sport and ignored it.
The Brooklyn team beat Cranston and the Los Angeles team 15-13.
Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White in the final season of “Better Call Saul,” a “Breaking Bad” prequel based on White’s crooked lawyer Saul Goodmen, played by Bob Odenkirk.
