Re: Breaking Bad - Season 5

I was looking at Breaking Bad's trivia section at the IMDb and there's lots of interesting stuff there. What especially caught my eye was seeing that Sony and AMC apparently didn't want Bryan Cranston to play Walter White because of his comedic roles. John Cusack and Matthew Broderick were considered, but when they declined, Vince Gilligan got to cast Cranston, which from the sound of things is who he wanted all along. Source. Cranston has done a phenomenal job and I can't imagine Cusack or Broderick doing better. I especially liked seeing Cranston's career go from from comedic dad to serious drug lord. It's just like Michael Chiklis going from the lovable Commish to dirty cop in The Shield. It's always fun to to see actors make that transition.

Re: Breaking Bad - Season 5

Aaron Paul auditioned for the part of oldest son Francis on Malcolm in the Middle. It was 2000, so he would have been just about the right age.

Yeah, I'd read that TPTB didn't want Cranston. Vince Gilligan had worked with him on an episode of the X-Files where he played some dastardly character, so he knew that Cranston could play a bad guy very well.

Cranston was AMAZING in his X-Files episode which was written by Gilligan.

Cranston is amazing in everything he appears in. I still remember him as the doomed ranger from Babylon 5 even though he was only ever in one brief scene!

And then Sheridan says "Do you have a family?"

I laughed my ass off when I thought about the idea that Lois and the kids at home propelled him into a suicide mission against the Shadows.

Breaking Bad will return on August 11th and along with it, a live commentary show called Talking Bad which will air right after each episode. Source.

Re: Breaking Bad - Season 5

They made a joke about this on the Nerdist last week. Betsy Brandt and John Ham were visiting and they were saying that Chris should host both Talking Men and Talking Bad.

I guess talking Men is only a matter of time now?
