Bryan Cranston stopped by TODAY Monday to talk about his new movie "The Infiltrator," in which he plays a U.S. Customs agent who goes deep undercover. But what stopped us in our tracks was his surprising reveal about another role he wants to tackle.

"I'd like to play Donald Trump at some point," he said. "He's huge. He's this Shakespearean character, this serio-tragic-comedic character. Who wouldn't want to take a bite out of that?"

And who better to? After all, Cranston, who's played Lyndon B. Johnson on stage and in a TV movie, is pro when it comes to larger-than-life characters.

In fact, he's already refining his Trump impression.

"Let me tell you something — and this I can tell you — it is hooooge!" he said with the presidential candidate's trademark delivery.
