Before They Were Stars: Dean Norris in “Total Recall”

In this past summer’s mediocre remake of Total Recall, Bryan Cranston played the role of the villainous Cohaagen, but in a neat coincidence, Dean Norris, who plays the role of Cranston’s brother-in-law Hank on Breaking Bad, had an early small role in the original 1990 version. You may not have recognized him, however, since he was under layers of makeup in the role of Tony the mutant, though he did get this classic exchange with Arnold Schwarzenegger:

“You got a lot of nerve showing your face around here, Hauser!”

“Look who’s talking.”
