Breaking Bad is back tonight! The show kicked off season five at Comic-Con last night with a special screening of the season opener, and we were on the red carpet to chat with Walter White himself: Bryan Cranston. We asked him to tell us about the hilarious hazmat suits he wore at the show's panel, and what he's going to miss most about Walter once the series wraps up 16 episodes from now. Plus, with Emmy nominations later this week, what is the three-time winner going to be doing nomination morning when he gets the call? Watch to find out!
looking very sharp. Oh I am? Oh well, thank you. Very different than yesterday's hazmat suit, which I have to ask; whose idea was that, and how did that come about? That was Aaron Paul's idea. I wholeheartedly supported it. It was, I thought, you know, why not. People here, they love to get in costume. And so I thought, "That's a great idea. Let's go in costume." And then Dean Norris comes in as Xena the Princess Warrior, and it's like I've never seen Xena with a pot belly until now. And I don't think that image burned into my retinas. And now, it'll take years for that to wash away. Well, 16 episodes left, what are you going to miss the most about Walt when you have to say goodbye to him? I'm gonna miss his carefree style, his easy smile Well, his just, you know, easy-come-easy-go attitude, and just the breeze. He breezes in and breezes out. He's a lovely man. He only poisons a child every so often. You know, which I think is far less than most people poison children. So there's that. The good things. It's the stories. I mean personally it's the people. The people we connect with, the families that we make on TV and behind it because we work so many hours together, and we're telling intimate stories that its really important to embrace that while we're here, celebrate it, and then let it go. Say goodbye. Well, final question, because the Emmy nominations are coming up this week. Yeah. You won three times in a row, you were out of the running, well, the whole show was out of the running last year. Yeah. How are you feeling going in into at this time. Any nerves? You're a pro. Until you mentioned it, I don't think about those things. Yeah. I didn't even know. What are you going to be doing nomination mornings? Sleeping. Sleeping? Yeah, like everyone should, and at 5:30 or 5:20 in the morning whenever that comes. And you get that phone call, you immediately think someone in your family died, right. You know and your heart starts racing, and then you can't go back to sleep and but that's a good reason too. It's like, and then you drink a pot of coffee to wake up. It's a fun, fun. It's like being jolted with the paddles, you know. Yeah, it's fun. Fun rush. It's a fun rush.
