This Sunday will see the 2012 return of Breaking Bad which means fans of one of television’s best dramas will soon get to see Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston reprise his role as chemistry teacher-turned-meth cook Walter White. So far, the actor has been on Today, The View, and David Letterman this week which makes his most recent appearance via CBS This Morning seem a little less surprising. Nonetheless, it is very much welcome as anytime Cranston wants to talk about Breaking Bad our ears perk up.
He brought a clip along that ran in the front of the interview. It is very much a non-spoiler for those of you who have seen the show’s season five promos as it has White dressing down his lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk.) The scene is meant to build on the evolution of Bryan Cranston’s character towards a tough as nails drug kingpin and it is definitely worth checking out in itself even if you do not care for the rest of the segment.
In terms of the actual interview, a major topic of conversation was how the Vince Gilligan-created series got made. The actor says that even though the head of Sony thought Breaking Bad was one of the worst ideas for a television show he has ever heard, the folks in charge of the television division pushed it enough to get the project made. Good call.
