This guy! This guy! Okay, so he doesn’t look much like Bryan Cranston, but I don’t know — when you’re a meth dealer named Walter White, maybe it’s just about living out your destiny. White was busted for meth manufacturing in Alabama because of course. No word on if he’s got a wife named Skylar and a business partner named Pinkman. [Buzzfeed]
“Breaking Bad” is one of my favorite TV shows, like, ever, but I rarely blog about it because it usually takes me a couple days to process all the intricacies of each episode. However, last night’s episode featured such a fantastic scene between Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his wife Skylar (Anna Gunn) that I couldn’t resist posting it. Spoilers after the jump!

It’s come to our attention that methed up “Breaking Bad” hottie Jesse Pinkman has a scandalous back story. Jessie — real name Aaron Paul — admitted to Jay Leno that he once appeared on “The Price Is Right.” He made it all the way to the Showcase Showdown, too, but overbid and lost. Paul and his friends were regulars on the show, and had tons of tips and tricks for how to actually get called up as a contestant. Situate yourself in the middle of the audience, for instance, because people are hardly ever picked from the front rows. While Paul didn’t win big, his friend was called for the following show and won his Showcase. He treated Paul to a trip to New Orleans. [via HyperVocal]
The 2012 Emmy Award Nominations were announced this morning and, personally, I was pretty stoked on the nominations. “Girls” and Lena Dunham were nominated in the comedy series and lead actress categories which made me think two things: A) “Girls” is a comedy series? and B) Suck it, haters! Practically the entire cast of “Breaking Bad” was nominated (though Saul and Hector were overlooked, in my opinion), as were a number of actors from “Downton Abbey.” “Mad Men” represented, as did “Game of Thrones” — Peter Dinklage, I’d guess, is a lock to win his category. After the jump, check out the nominations for all the major TV categories (those in bold are who I’m rooting for, because I know you care), and the rest of the nominees at the link.

Happy “Breaking Bad” Season Premiere Day! I’m pretty sure this “BB”-inspired manicure would look amazing with a hazmat suit. [Deviant Art]
Yo, this Sunday, Mr. Walter White and his meth-addicted protege Jesse Pinkman are back for the season premiere of “Breaking Bad.” I am so excited that I’m hosting a small get together at my apartment, complete with blue raspberry rock candy (what the show uses for their meth) and a bell in memory of Hector Salamanca, may he rest in peace. If I could, I would cater the entire thing from Los Pollos Hermanos.
Now, everyone knows there’s nothing hot about drug addiction in real life, but TV and movies have done a good job finding hot dudes to play drug addicts. In honor of “Breaking Bad”‘s return, I present to you 10 hot drug addicts on TV and in film, starting with the show’s own Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul). I would so be his bitch.
I love you more than HazMat protective suits. More than smoking meth with my buddies in my parent’s abandoned house. More than even Skylar loves money laundering through the car wash. Yes, my love for you is breaking bad. That’s why I hope you’ll accept this “Breaking Bad” V-Day card. We’ve got crazy chemistry, bitch. [Butthorn]
A “Breaking Bad” meets “The Simpsons” mashup? Sure, why not! I love that Jane, Jesse Pinkman’s druggie girlfriend from season two of “Breaking Bad,” is depicted as a frog dissection experiment gone wrong. [The Daily What]
Boston University professor Irina Kristy is a regular Walter White! The mathematics prof and her son Grigory Genkin (the Jesse Pinkman to her Walt) are facing charges for cooking and distributing methamphetamine. Genkin was charged with distribution of methamphetamine, conspiracy to violate drug law, and drug violation near a school zone. How very “Breaking Bad” of them! As one adorable BU student posited, “It could have been possible that Professor Kristy had no knowledge of the fact that there was a meth lab in her house.”
“Her son could have convinced her that it was some crazy lab experiment, but chances are she knew full well,” sophomore Urbashee Paul continued. “Although I do not support her involvement in the issue, I hope that it does not affect her chances to teach at BU.” [Daily Free Press]
“Breaking Bad”‘s Walter White might just be a hero for the Occupy Wall Street movement. After all, he’s a perfect example of a guy whose health insurance wouldn’t cover his medical treatment, forcing him to pick up a little “side job” in order to make ends meet. Sure, there’s that whole meth problem, but … oh wait, nevermind. [The Daily What]
