• Bryan Cranston is interviewed by Albuquerque’s Local iQ about his Breaking Bad role: “To have the emotional spectrum given to me that Walter White has been able to play, that’s just unheard of.”
• Local iQ also speaks with Vince Gilligan, who talks about what Albuquerque brought to Breaking Bad: “I can’t imagine the show would be nearly as interesting as it is if it were set anywhere else. Just the cinematography and the look of the show.”
• Wired spotlights four of TV’s best characters who play supporting roles, including Jesse, observing, “it’s hard to imagine the show without him as foil to Walter White.” (No Link.)
• Giancarlo Esposito talks to A.V. Club about playing Gus and how he’s “in gratitude that Vince Gilligan had such a depth of vision and the foresight to see that this character could be a great addition to what he had envisioned in Breaking Bad.”
