Bryan Cranston getting people to adopt adorable orphan puppies is obviously important viewing

The 45th President of the United States is quite happy to deal in alternative facts, so why should Bryan Cranston worry about slightly tweaking the backstory of a preposterously cute puppy? 

Stephen Colbert welcomed the Breaking Bad star to The Late Show this week, and it wasn’t long before his persuasive skills were put to the test. 

In a similar segment on a previous show Colbert managed to re-home six rescue puppies – all thanks to some exceptional lies – so giving it another shot with a Hollywood A-lister was a no-brainer.

And was Bryan Cranston ever going to struggle with flogging a few pups on the telly? Was he heck. Whether it’s Sterling the Shepherd/Terrier mix (and reformed party animal), or Norwegian wishing dog Poppy, previously owned by Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda, don’t you know – you are almost definitely going to want to jump on the next plane to New York and demand the adoption paperwork for all of them.
