One of my first stage appearances (I was one of many child extras) was in a tv show circa 1963. The highlight of the day was watching a talented performer named Jerry Van Dyke. That awkward kid on the far left is me. He made us all laugh and was very nice. Thank you Jerry. RIP. pic.twitter.com/Zbov5RGOSx— Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) January 7, 2018
