• Dean Norris, talking to Monsters & Critics, says, “I want to look back and see I was part of something great. And turns out Breaking Bad is going to be that.”
• Christian Slater tells Radio Times he’d love to work with Vince Gilligan: “When Breaking Bad was on, I would send him fan letters all the time. I haven’t asked to work with him but he knows I have a great deal of respect for him, so who knows?”
• Vulture chats with Jesse Plemons, who talks about playing Todd: “I guess he’s a pragmatic lunatic, and that really started to inform everything. It was just a matter of trusting your instincts, trusting the process, and tiny little threads of information that you have.”
• Radio Times tallies up “every person Walt is responsible for killing. As you can see from the final number, he REALLY is the danger…”
• HitFix includes Walt and Jesse dissolving dead bodies in acid in its round-up of “memorably gruesome but effective TV practices for making sure a dead body not only stays dead, but doesn’t get found or identified.”
• A.V. Club posts a video that shows how Breaking Bad shares “a few visual parallels with [Quentin] Tarantino’s cinematic masterpiece Pulp Fiction.”
• JOE.co.uk reports that Breaking Bad was voted one of the top 25 TV shows of the last quarter-century by IMDb users.
• Business Insider considers Breaking Bad — which “delivered one of the most memorable endings to a television series we’ve seen in a long time” — the most popular TV show from New Mexico.
• 411mania.com speaks with SuperMansion‘s co-creator, who talks about Bryan Cranston joining the project and how people “remember Bryan Cranston as Walter White, but if you go back a little further, you have him in Malcolm in the Middle. He’s one of the funniest things on that show.”
• According to Nerdist, Bryan Cranston will star in a stop-motion animated movie about dogs from Wes Anderson.
