The Word: Bryan Cranston fantasized about killing an ex
Playing a character like Walter White on “Breaking Bad” means facing your darkest impulses. And even a genuinely nice guy like Bryan Cranston, who plays Walter, has had some nasty moments in his life: He once fantasized about killing an abusive ex-girlfriend who was stalking him.
“My apartment had a brick wall on one side, and I envisioned opening the door, grabbing her by the hair, dragging her inside, and shoving her head into that brick wall until brain matter was dripping down the sides of it,” Brian told GQ. “Then I shuddered and realized how clearly I saw that happening. And I called the police because I was so afraid. I was temporarily insane — capable of doing tremendous damage to her and to myself.”
Gross! Still, good for Brian for having the sense to call the police. Walter White would have just killed that girl and her entire family.
To make meth, you just need to know the basic building blocks of chemistry.
Taking that idea one step further, Brian Anderson turned “Breaking Bad” into a Lego video game, complete with the whole gang of characters done up as Lego people, cut scenes and achievements.
While you can’t control what the characters do, you can get a sense of their illegal antics and can easily imagine how fun this would be to play in real life.
