Cranston Johnson was born the youngest of three children in Gastonia, NC. After graduating from Ashbrook Senior High School, he received a football scholarship from Western Carolina University. He went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Sport Management while finishing his collegiate football career with All Southern Conference honors. His athletic ability and football experience led to him being hired for his first job in the film industry in 2010; a featured extra in The 5th Quarter: starring Andie MacDowell, Aidan Quinn, and Ryan Merriman.

During this time, Cranston took an interest in acting and decided to pursue it as a career. He enrolled in a local acting workshop and eventually gained representation. It was not until he began method acting training in 2011 with Burgess Jenkins and the Actor's Group that he saw his skills on camera start to blossom. With his versatility and new found skill set, he was cast for numerous independent film and television projects. His first SAG booking came when cast as Shawn Griffin in the Jerry Rees directed film Susie's Hope during the summer of 2012. His performance was both powerful and chilling as he portrayed a man standing trial for animal cruelty. In December of the same year Cranston was cast in the Tyler Perry directed film The Single Moms Club starring; Nia Long, Tyler Perry, Wendy McLendon-Covey and Amy Smart.

Cranston’s breakthrough role came in the fall of 2016 when cast as series regular Detective Marvin Hanson for the second season of SundanceTV's darkly comic swamp noir Hap and Leonard starring James Purefoy and Michael K. Williams. Other episodic television credits include recurring roles on Atlanta, Euphoria, The Fix, Wu Assassins, P Valley and Filthy Rich.
