Yes! I hadn't even thought of that. But it seems rare that you find an actor who can do both equally well. Can Robert de Niro, for instance, really pull off Cranston's broad physical goofiness? Don't get me wrong--I think de Niro's an amazing actor, but his comedy schtick seems to be limited to glowering menacingly. And the main reason it's funny is because he's Robert de Niro.
I think drama and comedy are both equally difficult to do well, which is why, as Simon Pegg said in a recent interview, it's kind of a shame that there's not an Oscar for best comedic performance.
