Actor Bryan Cranston, aka Walter White, Retiring from “Signing Everything from Fans” But Will Take a Selfie


Maybe he has carpal tunnel syndrome. But Tony and Emmy winning actor Bryan Cranston will no longer sign autographs. He’s posted a notice to Twitter:

“After 18 years of signing everything for fans – I’m retiring. Overwhelmed by requests and I just can’t do it anymore. I love meeting fans and will personalize pix in person, but that’s all. Thanks for your understanding. See you on the street – we’ll take a selfie! Bryan”

Yes, this is for real. Maybe people were handing him blank checks. But the one meth dealer Walter White, former “Seinfeld” dentist Dr. Tim Watley, is done. I just hope he’ll make an exception for New York’s #1 autograph hound, Radio Man.
