This week, a two-page spread from a 1985 issue of Teen Talk surfaced on the internet, featuring a young, nimble Bryan Cranston. In 1985, the Breaking Bad star was 29 and best known for his role as the likable drama professor Doug Donovan on the ABC soap opera Loving. He was also, apparently, quite agile. In the feature, Cranston talks about his fondness for aerobics class and demonstrates his workout in Central Park. He also practices his baseball pitch, shows off his juggling abilities, and poses in a pair of very short sport-shorts with a jump rope around his neck. You can read the whole thing here.
