    "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston proved he is a class act after a video was posted showing him helping a teenager from Los Gatos get a prom date.

    Stefan Montana came up with the idea after seeing Cranston's Broadway show last month, and he asked the actor to help him get a date. Maddie Abene accepted Montana's invitation. See the video below.

    Cranston is currently starring in the stage production of "All the Way," a drama in which he portrays President Lyndon B. Johnson.

    After the video became a hit, Cranston invited the teenage couple to see his show and hang out back stage. The actor even paid for the couple's flight to New York, hotel room, and had a car waiting to pick them up from the airport.

    "I've never been in a room with so many talented people at one moment in time," Abene said of the experience. "And it was really just overwhelming, and everybody was so nice to us, you know, all the cast members and Bryan especially. They were all so casual about it."
