On stage, Bryan Cranston - who won best actor in a drama for "Breaking Bad" - compared his bald head to the denuded crown of the Emmy trophy. Backstage in the press room he explained why he shaved his head.
He said it’s for his role in the AMC series, the part that just won him the first Emmy of his career. Cranston said his character, a high school chemistry teacher turned drug dealer, is undergoing chemotherapy. Apart from cutting his hair, Cranston said he also dropped 17 pounds to appear more convincing as a cancer patient.
He said the downside of having close-shaved hair is that stuff keeps getting caught in his stubble, including fuzz and Jujubes.

Thanks . I have been looking for something like this . Good info I'll check back for information related to Liquid Diet.
Bryan is a genius! If you watch Malcolm in the Middle, he earned it for even that!!!
Bryan Cranston is an amazing actor. Breaking Bad is the best show on TV and I am thrilled he took the Emmy trophy home.
Hugh Laurie is one of my favorite actors, back to the Blackadder days, but Bryan Cranston earned this one. Excellent show.
Hugh Laurie was robbed. If not him, Michael Hall for Dexter. This is exactly why I don't watch the Emmy's anymore.
So glad he won – what a wonderful actor and show.
