Comic-Con 2012: How Bryan Cranston Got Pink Eye Filming ‘Total Recall’ With Colin Farrell (VIDEO)
Bryan Cranston is one tough actor.
The Total Recall star told reporters at Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend that an on-set mishap left him with a double case of pink eye.
It all started when a fight scene with Colin Farrell went wrong…
“True story. [Colin and I] were fighting in this pool of water; it was probably eight inches deep…Over the course of hours, warm water turns into a petri dish,” Cranston, 56, said of filming Total Recall. “We are fighting each other and rolling around — I got pink eye in both eyes.”
“It feels like sand paper in both your eyes,” he continued. “I looked like a bunny rabbit– it was bright pink. The great Canadian health care system…No lines, bang bang bang– it was easy.”
Although Farrell’s eyes were unscathed, Cranston — best known for Breaking Bad -- held no grudge.
“He’s a great guy,” Cranston said of the 36-year-old actor. “We had a terrific time. We fought each other a lot, and I looked at him like this rebellious teenager I had to bring in line. A lovable son who was acting out.”
