After Samuel L. Jackson narrated Go the F*ck to Sleep, I didn’t think that another children’s book could make an adult so happy — yet this glorious book has done just that, and it’s now narrated by none other than Bryan Cranston.
I’d highly recommend not reading this to your child if they’re anywhere near the age where they may be speaking their first words, because you might have yourself a little sailor on your hands. Though that might be quite funny at first, your next dinner party with the in-laws could get a little awkward. Read more on Ask Men…
Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have tweeted in response to Toys ‘R’ Us pulling “Breaking Bad” figurines from their shelves:

“Humans Of New York,” a collection of street-style photos and interviews gathered throughout the city, is one of my favorite blogs in the world. I love how refreshingly honest and vulnerable it is in capturing people’s stories. Apparently, I’m not the only one — Vogue invited HONY creator Brandon Stanton to cover the Met Gala. Stanton usually photographs everyday people, so at the Met, he treated his celebrity subjects just like any other New Yorker he’d stop on the street. His street-style photos of the event are presented the same way his everyday photos are : captioned by a simple quotation without the subject’s name. Keep reading »
Months before “Breaking Bad” fans lost their shit after finally learning about the fates of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the series finale, their portrayers, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, read the script for “Felina” for the first time. And a camera was there to capture their reactions as they read the script aloud. I love being able to see Cranston and Paul process the information they’ve just read; the realization that Jesse makes it out alive, and that Walt doesn’t. And the bits of scene description/non-dialogue are fabulous too: “That big M-60 has been placed in there sideways, mounted atop the rig Walt built. It rattles away, sweeping back and forth like Satan’s windshield wiper.” Genius. [via Gawker]
Leading up to the finale of “Breaking Bad,” many critics and fans of the show put forward their theories about how the show would end. One joking suggestion I read more than a few times involved Bryan Cranston’s Walter White assuming a new identity as Hal, the dad from “Malcolm in the Middle” (portrayed by Cranston, of course), or Hal waking up in bed next to his wife Lois, with the entirety of “Breaking Bad” having been a very odd, bad dream. Well, lo and behold, the creators of “Breaking Bad” apparently saw the hilarity in a BB/Malcolm crossover, because they included this alternate ending on the upcoming complete series DVD box set. “There was a guy who never spoke … he just rang a bell the whole time!” [NYMag.com]
“Breaking Bad” may be over, but our obsession with one of the greatest shows of all time has not — and that’s true for the cast and crew as well. The show’s camera operator Andy Voegeli tweeted a bunch of photos he took over the course of filming the five seasons, including the two snaps above of the “Breaking Bad”-inspired tattoos that Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston got. Paul’s ink, which says “No Half Measures” in cursive, is the name of a classic episode from season three (and a reference to a classic moment between Mike Ehrmantraut and Walter White). Cranston’s tat is, of course, the show’s logo, albeit very tiny. Check out a few more of Voegeli’s shots after the jump! Keep reading »
