With just days left before the final episode of Breaking Bad, the cast and creator Vince Gilligan stopped by Conan last night to talk about the Emmy-winning show and some of the hijinks that happen behind the scenes.
After a cold open that saw host Conan O’Brien heading into the desert with a shovel, Bryan Cranston read his favorite erotic fan letter and Cranston and Aaron Paul (and O’Brien and Andy Richter) demonstrated their “scary resting faces.”
Later, Anna Gunn described Cranston’s semi-nude penchant for keeping the mood light on set, and reacted to a ringtone of her scene from earlier in Season Five when she repeatedly says “shut up” in ever-more strident tones.
Dean Norris also visited to explain why his son’s middle name is Vincent, and Gilligan revealed his secret fear about finishing the show.
Last night’s Conan also featured a performance by Los Cuates de Sinaloa, the band that sang “Negro y Azul (The Ballad of Heisenberg)” from Season Two of Breaking Bad.
The final episode of the show airs September 29th at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
