Bryan Cranston has spent four and a half seasons on Breaking Bad evolving from a bumbling high school chemistry teacher into a narsissistic, and often times psychopathic, meth dealing kingpin.
In case you forgot, he is the one who knocks.
As we await the new, and final, batch of episodes to begin airing on August 11th, AMC has decided to tease the hell out of fans with some very brief glimpses into the second half of the shows fifth season.
In what I’m assuming will be the first of several, both Hank (Dean Norris) and Jesse (Aaron Paul) can be seen dealing with polar opposite situations. Jesse seems to be off the wagon and enjoying some down time under his coffee table, while Hank is driving somewhere with serious determination.
I would hope he’s driving to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to replace all of his wife’s horrendous purple decorations, but he’s probably finally on track to catch the ever elusive Heisenberg.
Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see.
Come in, close the door, and have a seat. (Just kidding, I don’t have an office!) We have to talk…
… about what an amazing week it has been! I never, ever thought I would say that the first full week after a holiday week would be amazing, and yet here I am, saying just that. But really and truly, it was amazing. Lady Gaga is back. Like, FORREALZIES! Justin Bieber urinated in a bucket! And called Bill Clinton on the telephone! Beyonc sparkled, Amanda Bynes entertained us all, and, of course, Sharknado happened. Saved the best for last, obviously.
Another highlight of this amazing week has been reading all of your insightful comments! As I do every Friday, I am now going to highlight a selection of them for everyone to “ooh” and “aah” over.
We named Britney Spears‘ upcoming project the most anticipated album of 2013, and that got y’all excited:
“No Surprise At All! #GodneyAlwaysWins” – Malcolm
“It’s Britney, b*tch!” – Wheng
“Queen of Pop” – Makram
Speaking of Britney, we disagreed about her new “Ooh La La” music video:
“i feel like some little teeny bopper should have been singing this “Ooh No No” song” – Jessica
“Omg are you serious its a video for a childrens movie !!!!! Cmon your real cool !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! & furthermore I was way more into the fact that it was adorable that she is doing the mom thing with her kids !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was Beautiful and your an asss !! I highly doubt she even cares what you think about the video ! It means something totally different for her !!” – Eddie
“I agree with Eddie. Unless people are naked in videos these days then they are not worthy. I loved this video and I know my grand kids will also. It is very cute and I am happy Britany did it with her kids. She has grown up.” – Glenda
In a week of big Justin Bieber news, perhaps the biggest item was his reunion with Selena Gomez:
“Seriously you guys just fight and then get back together for real that is stupid. Witch one is it not together or together.!!!” – Stephanie
Lastly, our ongoing Battle of the Bikini Bodies got some of you chatting:
“Britney, even if she didn’t have the body, she has the humble & introverted personality that makes her mysterious and sexy in a way that transcends physicality.” – Justinn
“Rihanna definitely has the best body. I can’t complain with the two Queen Bs- Britney and Beyonce! They always look hot in whatever they wear!” – Caroline
“Britney of course!! natural body, sexy and hot” – Iv n

Break out the scrapbook – it’s baby’s first set visit!
Claire Danes brought her six-month-old baby boy, Cyrus, along for a day of filming the third season of her hit TV drama Homeland in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Wednesday.
Taking a breather between shots, Danes, 34, doted on and kissed her chubby-cheeked little man, who is her first child with husband Hugh Dancy, 38. Later, the little one laid in the arms of a pal as Danes dedicated some time to an embroidery project.
When the cameras were rolling, Danes was back in character as Homeland‘s Carrie Mathison, the bipolar but brilliant CIA agent who’s committed her life to fighting terrorism. The critically acclaimed Showtime series took home three Golden Globes earlier this year, including a second best actress in a drama series trophy for Danes.
In her acceptance speech, she thanked her then-newborn son, who was in utero throughout the filming of Homeland‘s second season.
“I have to thank our son Cyrus, who’s upstairs with my parents,” she gushed. “Thank you for joining me throughout this whole process and being so game in fighting this war against terrorism.”
Glee‘s Cory Monteith has passed away.
The 31-year-old actor was found dead in his room on the 21st floor at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. He had checked into the hotel on July 6 and was due to check out on July 13, according to Vancouver Police.
Monteith’s reps sent Celebuzz the following statement:
“We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss.”
Monteith, who played the adorable quarterback Finn Hudson, spent time in rehab early this year, checking into a substance addiction treatment facility in April. After a short month, Monteith left rehab in May and laid low with co-star and girlfriend Lea Michele during a holiday Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Monteith had a long history of drug addition. At 16 he battled drugs and alcohol, but credited turning his life around due to an intervention three years later at 19.
Monteith’s publicist Melissa Kates also confirmed the sad news, to USA TODAY. “We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss.”
An official cause of death is yet to be determined, but police say there were no immediate indications of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
Update 2:50am ET – Statement released from Glee producers, 20th Century Fox TV and Fox Broadcasting: “We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”
In the most least surprising news of the week, Johnny Depp is pushing through a sequel to Disney’s $1 billion worldwide grossing Alice In Wonderland, just two weeks after his latest movie The Lone Ranger flopped on its arse.
Variety says Depp’s production company Infinitum Nihil has moved from Warner Bros to Disney and are now putting the wheels in motion on Through The Looking Glass that would see Depp reprise his role as the Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s 2010 live-action/CGI adaptation, with original screenwriter Linda Woolverton again on writing duties.
Although the planned movie shares the same name as Lewis Carroll’s own follow-up to his classic tale about Alice and that fabled rabbit hole… it likely won’t resemble too much of the novel as Burton’s 2010 film was already a sequel of sorts to both Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass.
Alice, the Red Queen, The White Queen and many of the other characters from the original are in Carroll’s follow-up, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the likes of Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway will return for this film, though it seems likely offers will be put out to them.
There’s no word yet on whether Tim Burton would direct. Obviously he’ll get asked to do it, but given his stance on hating sequels (the only one he ever made was Batman Returns and he did his best to make it tonally and artistically different from his original), we shouldn’t hold our breath that he’ll do it. Though if there was a movie he may return to, it could be Wonderland, given that Disney will throw obscene amounts of money at him to make it.
There was of course rumours back in May that The Muppets director James Bobin was courting the sequel and that could prove significant.
Once again then, when the tough gets going, Depp goes back to what works. The funny thing is, that was kind of what The Lone Ranger was supposed to be. A re-teaming at Disney with the talented director (Gore Verbinski) and writers and producers behind the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, along with a Jack Sparrow inspired take on Tonto, how could it fail?
After two weeks of trying to figure that out, Disney have decided to blame the age old Western property, one that was never that huge to begin with, and are keen to make their money back from another Depp cash-cow. A fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie is set for 2015 and if they get their way, a second Alice In Wonderland movie may not be too far behind.
Depp’s currently filming The Dark Knight trilogy’s awesome cinematographer Wally Pfister’s debut film Transcendence, before moving on to the recently announced Mortdecai, a re-teaming with his Secret Window writer David Koepp at Lionsgate. He then looks likely to give his vocals a run for their money in Rob Marshall’s musical Into The Woods before he goes back to the money making cash-cows of Jack Sparrow, and then seemingly Mad Hatter.
Although Tonto may not ride again on our big screens, it’s clear Sparrow will sail the seven seas and the Mad Hatter will have more tea parties to host.
