“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston says, it might be a way for Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey following allegations of sexual assault.
He said it would “take time… and great remorse over their role”.
“If you were to show us that you are really sorry and make amends, not defending their actions, but the request for forgiveness.
“Maybe, down the road, there is room for [a way]. Maybe it’s possible,” the star told the BBC.
“It would be up to us to determine on a case-by-case basis, whether or not this person deserves a second chance,” he added.
Both Weinstein and Spacey have denied the accusations against them.
Cranston said that anyone found guilty of such abuse would be possible to recognize that “they have a deep-seated psychological and emotional problem that takes years to heal”, and would be willing to “work in” to see that restored her career.
The 61-year-old, who found fame in the TV series Malcolm in the middle and Breaking Bad, told the BBC arts editor Will Gompertz: “Sexual predatory behavior is not a Hollywood problem, it is a social problem and we see it everywhere.
“What’s so great [is] that it’ s exposed. Young men and women should not tolerate abuse. We are an enlightened society, enough already.
“I don’t want my daughter educated in an environment where she has to monitor her behavior and avoid [passing] a building site,” he added.
“Let’s not get rid of these people and the behavior, it belongs in our society.”
Cranston also spoke about the controversial issue of gun control in the United States after several mass shootings in October.
“[We had killings] mass, then the indignation, upset, and then it calmed down. The NRA gun lobby is immensely strong. It is so sad. It is horrible to me, actually, as an American, that this is a way of life.
“It is simply unfathomable to me and yet it is real… the ultimate disrespect is to some innocent lives.
“If we are not repelled by what we hit?”
The reflection of American society, Cranston said: “wrath” was part of the reason why Donald Trump became President.
“It is a legitimate feeling, feel disenfranchised and not heard, and [Trump voters] latched to his message of the highest performance.
“He did not burden themselves with the truth – don’t worry, just listen to the message He has to feel this compulsion to talk to, as he is in control.
“A person must not always talk, for control of the situation. Just be smart, sometimes quiet and introspective, is a good thing.”
Cranston plays in the National Theatre in London in an adaptation of the Oscar-winning film Network, which shows a dystopian media landscape, where the opinion prevails over fact.
