Bryan Cranston summons up everything he's learned playing both a genial dad and a meth-cooking, family-destroying megalomaniac for his latest challenging performance: Narrating the audiobook of You Have to Fucking Eat.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is pissed that Toys R Us has stopped selling action figures from the show at the behest of a concerned Florida mom. Like costar Bryan Cranston, Paul took to Twitter to defend the toys, pointing out that the toy chain sells plenty of things more harmful to kids than a Jesse Pinkman doll. And furthermore, "yeah, bitch."
Back before Bryan Cranston was winning Emmys and making out with Julia Louis Dreyfus, he was hawking hemorrhoid cream. Brad Pitt once tried his hardest to make eating Pringles look like a sexy, fun thing to do. Now you can watch those auspicious debuts and more in this "Before They Were Famous" supercut.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul got the old band—and by "band" I mean "crystal meth operation"—back together for a fake pawn shop reality show to promote the upcoming Emmys. 2013 Best Actress in a Comedy Julia Louis-Dreyfus also appears, playing 1996 Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
The object of Jimmy Fallon's "Word Sneak" game is to work some preassigned random words into a conversation as seamlessly as possible. But for Bryan Cranston to do that, he'd have to know what a badonkadonk is. Which he clearly does not.
Ah, if there is one thing more beautiful than young love, it's young love spurred on by a famous TV drug manufacturer and murderer's best-known threat. So sweet.
If you think you were blown away by the Breaking Bad series finale, just imagine what it was like for the stars of the show to learn the fate of their own characters.
Conan's Breaking Badapalooza took place last night, and it was as methamphantastic as advertised.
Vince Gilligan's exquisitely developed Breaking Bad is so unassailably good that even the show's promotional bonanza is terrific. The premiere is two-and-a-half weeks away and we've already seen a generally endearing Bryan Cranston GQ cover profile, an Aaron Paul late-night "bitch" tribute, and particularly excellent Comic-Con stunt in which Bryan Cranston went incognito in a silicon mask of his own face.
GQ's August cover story on Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston isn't terribly revealing in the way you'd probably want it to be (i.e. virtually nothing is reported on the storyline of the upcoming final batch of Bad episodes). However, it does take a brutally honest turn when Cranston admits to relating to his morally threadbare character Walter White. Emphasis is on the brutal.
All right so this isn't exactly an audition tape per se, but it is about as close you're about to get to Samuel L. Jackson playing Walter White so quit acting like this isn't the best thing you're going to see today.
Depending on how you feel about spoilers, this could be bad news or good: Last December, someone broke into Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston's car in Albuquerque, where the show is filmed, stealing the actor's bag containing an iPad and a copy of a Breaking Bad script from one of the show's final episodes.
During this season of Breaking Bad, the first half of the show's fifth and final, Walter and Skyler White asked her sister Marie and her DEA agent husband Hank to accept increasingly outlandish (and fraudulent) behavior wholesale. Walter had a fake breakdown in Hank's office so that he could plant a microphone in it. Skyler, meanwhile, freaked out at Marie (in the instantly meme-worthy, "Shut up!" outburst) and then went seemingly catatonic in a pool during Walter's 51st birthday dinner. A cover-up so ridiculous hasn't been devised since Walter's Season 2 "fugue state" nonsense. All these lies have been in service of making the couple appear to be socially acceptable messes, and not the outlaw messes that they actually are.
Last night's Season 5 premiere of Breaking Bad was mostly low-key, aside from the caper above, in which Walter and Jesse attempt to wipe out a laptop's hard drive with magnets from outside of where it's being held as evidence. ("Yeah, bitch! Magnets! Oh!")
