Circle Monday, September 23 in your calendars, everybody. That’s the day that the entire main cast of Breaking Bad — Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, and Bob Odenkirk, as well as showrunner Vince Gilligan — will appear on Conan together. It’s also the day after the Primetime Emmy Awards, so maybe expect to see Cranston walk out rolling a barrel that’s filled to the brim with the hardware the show and its cast rightfully collected the night before.
The exciting part about this — besides the fact that it’s the cast’s first group appearance on a late-night show — is that, despite the dark as hell subject matter (NOTE: I may never recover from last night’s episode), the cast is made up of incredibly fun, funny people. Cranston is a fake-penis-loving goof, Odenkirk is a sketch comedy legend, Aaron Paul enjoys life more than anyone else in the world, Betsy Brandt is always a great talk show guest, and Vince Gilligan, somehow, is a perfectly nice, well-adjusted Southern gentleman. Getting them all together on a set with Conan is a recipe for good times.
Anyway, are you thinking what I’m thinking? Puppy Breaking Bad?
