Bryan Cranston is NOT happy when he discovers that his daughter is dating an internet billionaire bad boy (James Franco) in the first Why Him? trailer. Bryan’s suburban dad character is willing to do whatever it takes to get his baby girl away from James’ character in this super funny trailer.
Ned (Bryan Cranston) gets the shock of his when he and his family visit his daughter at Stanford and meet her new boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). He’s a tech billionaire who’s a bit on the awkward side. He’s got tons of tattoos, including a very strange tat of Ned’s family on his back! Being the overprotective dad that he is, Ned thinks Laird is a terrible match for his daughter.
When Laird is ready to pop the question to Ned’s daughter, Ned takes extreme measures to make sure Laird doesn’t become his son-in-law. But there’s a twist… Laird means well and really does care for Ned’s daughter. And he’s ready to prove Ned wrong.
Laird wins over everyone in the family except Ned. Will Ned eventually run Laird off? Or will Laird win him over like the rest of the family?
Bryan and James are pretty much a match made in comedy heaven. Bryan’s character is not that far of a stretch from his iconic Breaking Bad character. Megan Mullally, Zoey Deutch, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, Casey Wilson, and Adam DeVine also star. Oh, and James looks so good in the movie. His body is on fire! Why Him? hits theaters this Christmas.
