Fresh off his recent casting announcement for POWER RANGERS, Bryan Cranston has got a whole different battle on his hands in the new red band trailer for WHY HIM?, in which he’s taking on James Franco.
Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.
WHY HIM? is directed by John Hamburg and also stars Zoey Deutch, Adam Devine, Megan Mullally and Griffin Gluck. The film arrives January 6th in the UK and December 25th in the States.
