Oscar nominee and Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston’s latest role finds him coming down on the right side of the law, but no less embroiled in the war on drugs. Cranston plays DEA agent Robert Mazur in The Infiltrator, a new crime drama from director Brad Furman, in which the DEA mounts an undercover operation to take down one of history’s most notorious drug lords.

“Mazur had this belief that the way to bring down the drug cartels was not by chasing the drugs,” Furman told Entertainment Weekly. “But instead by chasing the money. So he literally went undercover as a money launderer and pulled this string that blew open a gaping, volcanic hole. And that hole went as deep as Pablo Escobar.” Furman knows his star well—Cranston had a small role in 2011’s The Lincoln Lawyer, and the two have been friends ever since.

The Infiltrator also stars John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger, Amy Ryan and Benjamin Bratt, and is set for a July 15 release. Check out the high-energy trailer above.
