bb-s4-walt-jesse-325This week, Bryan Cranston compares his newest character, President Lyndon Johnson, with his most well-known, Walt and Jonathan Banks is cast in a new movie. Read on for more:

According to The Wall Street Journal, Bryan Cranston, starring on Broadway as Lyndon Johnson, says the 36th president and Walt were “both very powerful, strong-willed, smart, damaged. In both cases, ego had a large part of what downfall they had.”

Jonathan Banks has been cast in Term Life, a crime thriller to be directed by Peter Billingsley, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

• Hypable taps Aaron Paul as a future Oscar nominee, calling him “one very busy man, jumping from project to project and covering almost every genre on the way.”

Talking about playing President Lyndon Johnson in All the Way, Bryan Cranston tells the Associated Press, “You only make your Broadway debut once and I’m encouraged that I hitched my wagon to a really well-written play.”

The Saturn Award nominations were announced and Breaking Bad has five nods: best TV presentation of a limited run series, best actor for Bryan Cranston, best actress for Anna Gunn, best supporting actor for Aaron Paul and best guest star for Robert Forster.

Aaron Paul turned up on Top Gear in a Reasonably-Priced Car challenge — and broke the BBC Two show’s speed record, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Aaron Paul guest-hosted WWE Monday Night Raw and “looked as happy as he did at his wedding — which is why we love him,” says Entertainment Weekly, which has some video of the event.

Bill Burr tells the Ottawa Citizen, “I owe my acting career to [Vince] Gilligan and the writers and everybody else attached” to Breaking Bad.

What Culture posts “a tribute to the under-appreciated, overlooked, and underrated episodes that helped make Breaking Bad a modern masterpiece.”

What Culture also highlights its take on Breaking Bad‘s 10 best musical moments.

Describing his new movie, Need for Speed, to Ireland’s Independent.ie, Aaron Paul says, “What’s so great about this film is it’s not just a car movie, but it’s a throwback to the classic car culture films.”
