Yesterday, in the post Dustin did on the frequent use of Chekhov’s gun in Breaking Bad, commenter “gunnar_jensen” wondered if it was possible for UPROXX to go a single day without posting something related to Breaking Bad. The answer is no, we cannot. We simply love the show way too much.
So to up the ante even more, so to speak, today we’re welcoming RJ Mitte — aka Walter Jr. and his former alter ego “Flynn” — over to the site to hang out in the comments section of this post to answer questions from our readers. Break out that bottle of tequila, Uncle Hank — it’s time to par-tay.
With that said, here are some interesting things I recently learned about RJ…
- He is originally from Lafayette, La., deep in the heart of Cajun country. (MAIS, HOW ABOUT DAT!?)
- Like his character on the show, RJ has cerebral palsy, although his is a milder form of the disability than Walter Jr.’s.
- RJ can be soon seen starring as Tim in the upcoming fantasy thriller film House of Last Things. (Watch the trailer here.)
- In his free time RJ enjoys hiking Runyon Canyon and ballroom dancing. Additionally, he hopes to direct and produce in the future.
With all of that out of the way, RJ will join us at 3:00PM EST/12:00PM PST to reply to questions and comments about Breaking Bad, his career, the importance of a hearty breakfast, etc. Feel free to get your questions in early and please direct them all to @RJ. He’ll get to as many as he can. Please welcome him with open, adoring arms.
