Recent Cast and Crew Interviews for Season 2

The encore airings of Season 2 are over, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to see on the Breaking Bad blog. Revisit the interviews conducted with the cast and crew during the second run of Season 2. Here’s a quick sample:

“My proudest moment was when I got to walk up to the bodyguard at Tuco’s place and go, ‘Yo, I’m Skinny Pete!'” — Charles Baker (Skinny Pete)

“The only stuff in Badger’s head is boobs and bong residue. He’s like a lot of friends I’ve had. That’s why people love the character — he’s like ‘that guy’ from your school.” — Matt L. Jones (Badger)

“They’ve done a lot of tests about panic — it’s where you don’t see any solutions… That’s what I felt was being shown for Donald there, where he’s just lost in those numbers. He’s not connected any more.” — John De Lancie (Donald Margolis)

“I tried to think like someone who is very cool under pressure, someone who will definitely not make any flagrant mistakes… Military men throughout history are unflappable under fire. The noisier it gets, and the more chaotic it gets, the cooler you try to be.” — Jonathan Banks (Mike “The Cleaner”)

“[Episode 13, ABQ] isn’t the flashiest show that I’ve done. It isn’t the one that has the most unique editing tricks going on. It’s like a simple conclusion to a complicated story… It sums up the whole season and is so satisfying because it answers a lot of questions and it’s putting all the characters in such different places.” — Lynne Willingham, Emmy-winning Editor

“One of the things that I always strive for is I don’t really want people to notice the photography or the lighting. I want it to be an integrated part of the storytelling. And it’s nice when people look at it and think, “It’s beautiful and it’s effective.” But I don’t want people to say it was good because of the cinematography.” — Michael Slovis, Emmy-nominated Cinematographer

“Part of Walter’s problem is that he’s got this physical issue, but it’s an emotional issue too. When you can come in and help people in some way they didn’t expect, that really helps treat the whole person, which is something we really didn’t expect to see when we started doing these programs.” — Rob Landry, President of the National Cancer Coalition
