ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Tony Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston is giving a fellow actor from Breaking Bad some help in his race for a New Mexico county commissioner's seat.

Cranston is joining comedian George Lopez in asking some residents of the state's largest county to vote for Steven Michael Quezada in a county commissioner's race. They are promoting Quezada on mailers targeting voters.

Lopez and fellow Breaking Bad actor Dean Norris also are lending their voices on robo calls for Quezada.

Breaking Bad, which is set in Albuquerque, follows former high school teacher Walter White (Cranston) who's producing methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).

Quezada played DEA agent Steven Gomez in the hit AMC-TV series, which ended in 2013 amid a large following.
