Last night on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston stopped by to clear a few things up.
After a little bit of cutesy small talk wherein Conan alerted him to the existence of a Lego meth lab, Conan broached what was perhaps a sticky subject: Cranston’s longstanding feud with Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm. Apparently, Hamm threatened to take matters into his own hands if he continued to hog all the Emmys. “Jon Hamm has said that he will kick your ass if you win again,” ventured Conan. “Do you fear for your life now?”
Cranston replied that he’s not scared:
“He said that after my second one, and then I won a thirdâ€¦he did nothing. I have more resistance to Hamm than a Hasidic Jew. I’m good.”
In other Breaking Bad news, Cranston recently told The LA Times that he would not be opposed to doing a movie-length sequel and/or finale to the show:
“Vince feels that now we have too much story. We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes. [A film is] not far-fetched. I wouldnâ€™t mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesnâ€™t know anything of how the showâ€™s going to end. If it doesnâ€™t end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If heâ€™s still alive, that is.”
Anything that results in more of Mike‘s one-liners, more crazy drama, and more seeing Walt go off his nut is okay by me.
