Stephen Colbert And Vince Gilligan Had A Meth Off

We often make note that it’s easy to love Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. He’s simply the opposite of what we’ve come to expect from a brilliant showrunner: folksy, down-to-earth, and seemingly ego-less. So when I saw he was going to join Colbert last night I made a mental note to check it out. Not because I think Gilligan is an amazing interview (he’s not) but because even late night hosts seem to geek out whenever he’s on.

Colbert wasn’t much different, even breaking character a few times between painting Walter White as Mitt Romney’s dream self-made citizen and being awesome interview Colbert to mention how much he loves the show. Highlights include…

  • Colbert: “Just tell me now how it ends.” Gilligan: “Not going to end well.”
  • METH OFF!
  • There is blue crystal meth out there…now.
  • Colbert floating the hypothesis that Gilligan is himself breaking bad. Seems legit.

Parts one and two after the jump. Meth Off! starts at the 2:20 mark of part one.
