If terrifying chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-maker Walter White of "Breaking Bad" asks you to do something, you'd better give him the answer he wants. High-school student Stefan Montana of Los Gatos, Calif., nabbed actor Bryan Cranston, who played White, after seeing him in the Broadway show "All the Way" last Thursday, and enlisted him in a little project.
"Maddie, if you don't go to the prom with Stefan, then maybe your best course of action would be to tread lightly," Cranston, in Walter White character, obligingly said into a camera.
A nervous Montana followed up the celebrity cautionary remark by asking, "Maddie, will you go to prom with me?"
Montana later tweeted and Instagrammed "she said yes!"
The New York Daily News reported that Montana was in New York visiting colleges and got the idea for the question while watching Cranston's play.
"(Cranston) really is the nicest guy in the world," Montana told the Daily News. "It really is true. He's not really a celebrity, he's a dude. He didn't have to help me out but it was pretty amazing."
Cranston stars in "Godzilla," which opens May 16.
