John O’Hurley Dishes ‘Loving’ Past With BFF Bryan Cranston



Prolific actor John O'Hurley isn't one of those thespians who's ashamed to talk about his soapy past, or the friendships he made while bubbling up! In a new interview with the Miami Herald—promoting his turn in a local production of Chicago—the multi-soap alum recalls how he met his best friend and fellow Seinfeld alum, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, on the set of ABC Daytime's Loving. Here's an excerpt:

Do you keep in touch with anyone from the old “Seinfeld” gang?

Well, Bryan Cranston [who played dentist Tim Whatley] has been my best friend since 1983. We met on the soap opera Loving. We were married to the same woman on the show. He’s been my best man twice. I told him never again! We’re going away with our wives once we have a little breather. We travel a lot together. We even bought a couple of vacation properties together.
