'Breaking Bad': John Cusack as Walter White and other could-have-beens

With a premise about a middle-aged chemistry teacher who finds out he has cancer and starts cooking meth, "Breaking Bad" was not exactly an easy sell to make it on television. But its history includes some bigger bumps and near-misses than most -- including the idea that John Cusack could have played Walter White.That and other details of the show's long road to critical raves and Emmy wins for AMC is documented in The Hollywood Reporter. Among other tidbits in the story:- After Showtime, TNT and HBO passed "Breaking Bad," FX bought the pitch in 2005 and started developing the show. FX eventually said no too, opting instead to go with Courteney Cox's show "Dirt" in a bid to draw more female viewers. - Sony, which produces the show, and AMC were initially skeptical about casting Bryan Cranston as Walter White -- partly because of his "Malcolm in the Middle" past, partly because the character... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/breaking-bad-john-cusack-as-walter-white-and-other-could-have-beens.html

‘Breaking Bad’: Creating Magnetic Attraction

For the fifth-season premiere of AMC’s "Breaking Bad," a criminal caper required a lot of resourcefulness, if not necessarily scientific accuracy, by production designers. //feeds.nytimes.com/click.phdo?i=6285eca662cefbf7b6005d574aabfa6f

'Breaking Bad': Watch Walt and Jesse attract some attention

The season premiere of "Breaking Bad" took on the feel of a heist movie at times, culminating in the scene you can watch up above.Walt (Bryan Cranston), Jesse (Aaron Paul) and Mike (Jonathan Banks) scheme to recover a laptop the police seized from Gus's office that contained boatloads of video from the Superlab. Walt wants to make a bomb to blow up the Albuquerque PD evidence room, but Jesse comes up with the idea of using a magnet instead.Which leads us to the scene in the video: Having made and tested out a makeshift magnet, Walt and Jesse manage to sneak into the APD complex -- with Mike having cleared the way -- and turn on the juice. It actually works, although Walt can't resist giving an unnecessary extra blast, breaking the truck's axle and forcing him and Jesse to escape on foot to Mike's car.Mike, naturally, is angry to leave anything behind that the... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/breaking-bad-watch-walt-and-jesse-attract-some-attention.html

'Breaking Bad' Season 5 premiere - 'Live Free or Die': Walter White is Magneto

So, Walter White, you've vanquished your enemies, freed yourself from answering to anyone and, as you told your wife on the phone after Gus Fring went boom, you won. What do you do next?You clean up loose ends, is what you do. The Season 5 premiere of "Breaking Bad" finds Walt as powerful as he's ever been -- with Gus Fring out of the way, seemingly nothing will hold him back now. Except, you know, for the fact that the investigation into Fring's death could lead straight to him. And the fact that Skyler gave a bunch of their money to Ted Beneke, which means he's not nearly as rich as he could be. And Mike would just as soon kill him as look at him.So, maybe being the king isn't all it's cracked up to be -- and judging the unbelievably intriguing opening scene, it's not. Let's get back to that in a bit... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/breaking-bad-season-5-premiere---live-free-or-die-walter-white-is-magneto.html

'Breaking Bad': Breaking down 'Live Free or Die's' flash-forward scene

"Breaking Bad" threw its fans a serious curveball with the opening scene of Season 5, one that skips ahead in time and shows Walter White (Bryan Cranston) up to no good away from his home base of Albuquerque.Zap2it asked series creator Vince Gilligan about the flash-forward scene, and he explained his thinking in opening the season with the sequence and talked a little about when the show will circle back to it. (Short answer: Eventually.) But first, let's break down what happens in the scene.(It should go without saying that there are spoilers below, but for the record: There are spoilers below.)Walt is apparently celebrating his 52nd birthday at a Denny's somewhere in California. The series began with Walt's 50th birthday, so it's now two years since we first met him -- and based on the events of the first four seasons, roughly a year ahead of the show's present day.
