The final eight episodes of Breaking Bad won’t air until this summer, but anticipation levels are already going through the roof around here. Everybody has questions that they want/need answered, most notably about what will happen to Bryan Cranston’s character, Walter White, as the show wraps itself up and floats off to TV Heaven. It hasn’t quite captured the zeitgest like the questions about Tony’s fate heading into the final season of The Sopranos, but still, for the show’s die hard viewers, it’s at least that important. Which brings me to this interesting little tidbit: Earlier this month, someone stole of one Bryan Cranston’s final eight scripts.
Please involve grappling hooks and laser sensors. PLEASE.
Lead actor Bryan Cranston reported someone broke his car window and took a shoulder bag which had his iPad and a copy of his “Breaking Bad” script on March 1, according to the criminal complaint. [KOAT]
Dammit. Every time I hear about a story like this I expect an elaborate Pierce Brosnan-style heist with gizmos and fancy ladies in ball gowns and unexplained jaunts to the Caribbean, and every time it’s just some dildo throwing a rock through a car window. This is bullsh-t. I bet he wasn’t even wearing a tuxedo.
Court documents reveal one of Cranston’s employees, Taryn Feingold, was contacted by a confidential informant. That informant detailed a local bar conversation, where a man was bragging about how he broke into a vehicle at the Sandia Crest, and had an iPad and script from the “Breaking Bad” series.
Xavier McAfee was arrested Saturday for the burglary, according to arrest records.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said the script hasn’t been recovered and the investigation is ongoing.
Anyway, this is obviously big news, because if this dildo (excuse me, alleged dildo) scanned all the pages into his computer and uploaded them to Google Docs, he could straight-up ruin a pretty significant chunk of Vince Gilligan’s next couple months by pressing two or three buttons on his smartphone. I mean, it could be a fake script. That’s something that happens. But it could also be one that contains sensitive information about the fate of one or more of the show’s characters, and it would suck if all that leaked.
At least with Brosnan we’d know he’s a gentleman thief who would never release it to the public. No, he’s just having a little fun. He’ll put it back in Cranston’s car eventually, probably with witty little notes added in the margins. The *POOF* he’s off to Monaco.
But you can never tell with these dildos, man.
