We already knew he is the one who knocks, but after Wednesday night’s Sixers game, it’s clear that Bryan Cranston is also the one who smacks — San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker’s butt, to be exact.
Cranston, who is in town filming Untouchable with Kevin Hart, headed down to the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday to take in a Sixers game with Philly director M. Night Shyamalan, who previously attended a game alongside Hart:
Heading to the @Sixers game with a friend. So excited!

It was there that Cranston, 60, got close enough to Parker to give his bum a sportsmanly air-tap, which apparently was Shyamalan’s idea. Cranston wrote that the director bet him $100 he wouldn’t smack the point guard’s butt:

The man formerly known as Heisenberg also met with Sixers star Joel Embiid, who missed his seventh straight game on Wednesday thanks to a left knee injury. Embiid posted about the meeting on Instagram, writing that Cranston, who “for sure trusts the process,” wanted him to “cook on the court”:

Unfortunately, even with Cranston’s support, the Sixers couldn’t out-play the Spurs, and fell 111 to 103 for the team’s fifth straight loss.
Cranston recently was spotted tooling around the streets of Philadelphia in a Ferrari driven by Kevin Hart. The pair this week filmed scenes in Center City for Untouchable, shooting on Broad Street and at the Center for Architecture and Design.
The film is a remake of the 2011 French hit The Intouchables, and centers on a wealthy aristocrat who must hire a black caretaker after becoming severely injured in an accident.
Shyamalan, meanwhile, still is riding high off the success of his most recent thriller, the Philly-shot Split, which topped the box office for its third straight week this past weekend. According to reports, he plans to release a sequel to 2000's Unbreakable as his next film.
