Since his move to TBS, Conan O’Brien has become somewhat of a champion of cable programming. While this was not really surprising considering he was now a member of the Turner Broadcasting family, it was a bit shocking that he would extend out invites to actors who are not your typical talk show guests that reside in the depths of the channel lineup.
That said, he felt compelled to bring in the showrunner of Breaking Bad Vince Gilligan on the program last night mostly because his fandom of the Emmy-winning program. Topics of conversation included the series’ origins and of course writing these characters into corners. Apparently, there are a whole lot of times where they simply do not have a set plan and end up screwing the pooch a little to the point where they think they will have to go back and rework some stuff.
In addition to the interview, Gilligan brought along another clip from next week’s show. Breaking Bad airs Sunday nights at 10 PM, ET on AMC.
