Star plays a federal agent who goes undercover to penetrate Pablo Escobar’s drug ring
We know Bryan Cranston best for “Breaking Bad,” and in his upcoming movie “The Infiltrator” he takes on another crime-filled role.
The drama is based on federal agent Robert Mazur’s attempts to penetrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking ring and bring down the notorious Colombian kingpin in the 1980s.
Mazur (Cranston) goes undercover as a money-laundering businessman named Bob Musella and eventually befriends the so-called King of Cocaine’s right hand man, Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin Bratt).
In this clip, Mazur is frustrated as he argues with other agents over Escobar’s missing $10 million and how he needs to get that to him. His colleague tries to tell him how ridiculous that request is and it simply can’t be done. He’s just supposed to ask that the government drop its investigation? Nope.
The attitude turns a little more somber when everyone realizes that Mazur’s life might actually be threatened over this money.
“Bob,” Mazur’s fellow agent asks, “are you in danger from Pablo Escobar if his money doesn’t come through?”
