In the new four part series “Behind the Gun,” Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris takes viewers on a madcap tour through his unconventional preparations for the DEA agent character of Hank Schrader. Borrowing equally from Stella Adler and Christopher Guest, the actor undergoes rigorous, self-imposed ordeals in a search for inspiration.
In the first chapter, “Hank Needs a Bigger Gun,” Dean encourages the property department to help him realize a none-too-subtle fantasy.
