Actor Bryan Cranston is stepping behind the camera to direct an episode of hit TV comedy The Office.

The Breaking Bad star will take time out of performing to take charge of the American version of the popular series, which is now in its ninth season.

The Office star Rainn Wilson took to his Twitter.com page to reveal the new addition to the show by posting a photo of Cranston on set.

In the accompanying caption, Wilson made reference to Cranston's drug-dealing Breaking Bad character, writing, "Free meth for The Office! (look who's directing...)".

Cranston plays a former chemistry teacher who starts producing and selling methamphetamine after being diagnosed with cancer.

It won't be the star's first time in the director's chair - Cranston has previously helmed episodes of Modern Family and his former hit, Malcolm in the Middle.
