Bryan Cranston says his Malcolm in The Middle sons have made heartbreaking confession to him as adults

He also opened up about a possible revival

Malcolm in The Middle star Bryan Cranston has revealed the heartbreaking confession that his on-screen sons made to him.

Cranston played Hal in the US sitcom, the dad of five boys - Francis (Christopher Masterson), Reese (Justin Berfield), Malcolm (Frankie Muniz), Dewey (Erik Per Sullivan) and Jamie (Lukas Rodriguez).

The show ran for more than 150 episodes between 2000 to 2006 and fans were gutted when it ended.

Speaking about his role on the show, and his relationship with his on-screen sons, Cranston recently revealed how proud he is of his fellow actors.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said: "Playing a father on television was easy for me cause I'm a father in real life.

"On Malcolm for seven years these boys were my boys. I'm very, very proud they made it through the gauntlet of child actor-dom. Which is not easy."

Cranston also revealed one heartbreaking confession that the boys had made to him about their time on the show.

"That's my job too, to talk to them about how to grow up, how to behave. And especially to appreciate the moment they're in," he said.

"I talk to them all the time and they're saying, 'I wish I had remembered the fun that we had' and I go, 'You do, in your way as a child'."

Cranston also spoke about the possibility of a revival - and it sure sounds promising.

He said: "It would be fun to explore now... there's been some conversations but nothing definitive yet."

Back in December, Frankie Muniz confirmed the show would be rebooted if a specific condition is met.

Apparently, after talks first began about a reboot, the show’s creator Linwood Boomer said: “I think it would be amazing but I don’t want to do it."

Explaining he didn’t have the time, he said he’d give his blessing if the team got two specific writers on board.

While Muniz didn’t disclose who they are, he explained Cranston is leading it and has been working with the writers ‘for the last two years’.

“I would love it, especially as I have a greater appreciation of what the show is and was and would love to dive in with all those people again to do it,” the star added.

But he did also say: “So many shows have been rebooted and so many shows shouldn’t have been rebooted.

“So, I don’t wanna be just like one of those shows, it has to make sense. It has to be good.”

This *has* to happen.
