Bryan Cranston out, Robert Patrick in for “Gangster Squad.”


Variety is reporting that Bryan Cranston has bowed out of the forthcoming Gangster Squad, due to scheduling conflicts with the Ben Affleck film Argo.  But have no fear, as Cranston is being replaced by another heavy-hitter – the T-1000 himself, Robert Patrick.  Patrick will be playing the role of Max Kennard, “a laconic LAPD officer from Texas who enforces the law ambitiously.”
