Fun fact: Bryan Cranston can bust a sick move when he wants to.
“You are a good dancer,” Cranston’s “Breaking Bad” co-star Betsy Brandt pointed out backstage at the Golden Globes on Sunday following the show’s win for Best Drama Series. Indeed, given that both Cranston and the show took home statuettes at last night’s ceremony, the actor may well have cut a rug or two on the after-party circuit.
“What has happened to the world of ‘Breaking Bad’ is that the fans have lifted it up to this level that none of us could have anticipated, the zeitgeist of it all,” Cranston said in answer to a question from the assembled press pool about the show’s five-season run. “And even though Walter White is dead, he seems to be able to stay alive somehow on life-support systems.”
Speaking of the “Breaking Bad” universe, it’s set to live on in the form of “Better Call Saul,” a prequel series focusing on Bob Odenkirk’s shady strip-mall “lawyer” Saul Goodman. So will Cranston, Brandt, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris and RJ Mitte perhaps be making cameos in the new show?
“Im gonna wind up, I’m sure, Peter Gould and I, who’s creating the show with me, we’re gonna be hitting up all of these wonderful actors for cameos at some point or another,” said “Bad” creator Vince Gilligan. “We’ve gotta figure out how to work that out story-wise.”
