Watch: Bryan Cranston Charms in Biopic ‘Trumbo’

28 August 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Bryan Cranston is slowly but surely achieving pop culture domination. After God knows how many Emmys (four) for his performance in AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” plus a Tony Award for playing Lbj in “All the Way,” it now seems Cranston will be going, well, all the way in his bid for hardest working actor in the biz. “Trumbo,” directed by Jay Roach with a script by John McNamara, is based on the life of 1940s Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whose career hit a roadblock when he was blacklisted for being a suspected Communist. His fight against the U.S. government and studio heads for freedom of speech implicated John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and countless others. Joining Cranston in the title role is Diane Lane as his wife, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, and John Goodman. Helen Mirren gives what looks to be a juicy supporting performance as Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. »

‘Mythbusters’ Tests Out Final ‘Breaking Bad’ Showdown

27 August 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Oh, so it’s really the “Mythbusters” team who are the ones who knock?

With all the loose ends tied up in the “Breaking Bad” finale, which aired in 2013 on AMC, there are some things in particular that fans still want to know: Would it really have been possible for Bryan Cranston’s anti-hero, Walter White, to build his ammo-filled booby trap? And would that mechanical version of “Scarface’s” “little friend” scene have actually taken town the hive of skinheads, like the show suggested?

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, who host Discovery’s “Mythbusters,” recently went on the case to test both questions. “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan, ever the good sport about these things, even came along for the ride.

The results? Better than they were during “Mythbuster’s” “Breaking Bad” special in 2013, which debunked the effects of both hydrofluoric acid in a bathtub and of solid mercury fulminate thrown to the ground. »

Yeah, Science! MythBusters Puts Breaking Bad Finale's Epic Trunk Machine Gun to the Test

27 August 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You remember the Breaking Bad finale and how absurd some of it was—and we mean absurd in the best ways possible. Well, MythBusters is back to drop some science on us about whether Walter White (Bryan Cranston) could've really done that whole trunk/gun deal. If you haven't seen the finale yet, why not? Oh, and stop reading. In the finale, Walter rigged a machine gun to pop out of his trunk and he saved Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from captivity. It was a happy ending with lots of dead bodies...Jesse got away and Walter died. Ok, maybe it wasn't very happy. But there was a lot of science involved. Was it real science? Let Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman show you. The two assembled everything Walter had in »
