Father's Day is almost here, which means two things: last minute gift shopping and a higher tolerance for dad jokes for one day only.

Whether it's your step-dad, a special father figure in your life or your parent, buying the right gift can be tricky to navigate but worth it for the results.

Is your Papa obsessed with fantasy themes like Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings? Or is he more of a Breaking Bad lad?

Rumours are buzzing about an upcoming film adaptation of Breaking Bad.

Returning to their iconic Albuquerque location, the film's crew is going back to where it all started.

While details of the full cast have yet to be released, we now know we can count on Aaron Paul's return as Jesse Pinkman.

According to Slashfilmthe movie will be a sequel to the beloved series, picking up where the dramatic finale left off.

The film will be written and produced by the original series creator Vince Gilligan, guaranteeing a continuation of the quality script we fell in love with.

The New Mexico Film Office issued a press release about a movie called Greenbrier, which is said to be the Breaking Bad film, according to The Albuquerque Journal.

The release vaguely describes the film, saying it “tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom”.

So, we can assume that this kidnapped man will be Jesse and the plot will follow his escape from Albuquerque following the bloody finale.

The film is looking promising so far and we can’t wait to find out more details. 

The drama had its finale in 2013 and has gathered a massive fan-base since.

So, take a deep breath Breaking Bad fans because our favourite Emmy Award winning actor is returning.

And it's going to be epic.


US actor, Aaron Paul and his wife, Lauren, just dropped some very exciting news – baby number one is on it's way.

The couple shared the news via adorable synchronised Instagram posts last night, and it's safe to say they are absolutely over the moon.

“Hey everyone. Look what I did,” Aaron wrote.

“Words can't express how excited I am that this little one has entered our lives. Just thought it was time I would share this beautiful news with all of you.”

The star, who played Jesse Pinkman in the hit series Breaking Bad, also shared a super sweet snap of Lauren cradling her blossoming bump.

Posting on her own Instagram account, Lauren created a heartwarming collage showing herself and Aaron as small children along with an ultrasound scan of their son or daughter.


Oh hi !

The pair married back in 2013 after meeting on the polo fields of the Coachella music festival in California.

So, it looks like Jesse turned out all right after all.

Bryan Cranston has sent Breaking Bad fans into a frenzy after he teased the possible return of his character, Walter White, in Better Call Saul.

The prequel spin-off recently saw the return of Gus Fring, played by Giancarlo Esposito and it seems almost inevitable that a pre-Heisenberg Walter White would make an appearance.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk while promoting his new movie, Wakefield, the actor admitted he would love to reprise the dynamic role.

“No I absolutely would. With Better Call Saul out there now I get the question a lot – would I come back on Better Call Saul?”

“Would I do it? And the answer is yes. And the reason I would do it is because I’d do anything that Vince Gilligan asked me to do. 'Wash my car?' You bet.”

“So there’s a possibility I could be on Better Call Saul as Walter White at some point. That would be fun. I don’t know when or if that’ll come to be.”

However, we shouldn't get our hopes up too high just yet – though we're keeping out fingers crossed. 

When asked whether or not he had been involved in any talk to appear in the show, Bryan replied: “Not yet.”

What's more, the star also said he would love to return as Hal in a Malcolm In The Middle revival.

“But it’s the same thing with Hal on Malcolm In The Middle," he added. "I truly loved that experience and the people involved and there might be a possibility that something could develop along those lines too.”

Sounds promising right?

For now though, you can catch Bryan Cranston's latest film Wakefield, which will be available on digital platforms on July 28.



As you probably know were big fans of Bryan Cranston here in Shemazing! HQ, and we basically love everything he does.

Whether it's a TV show, a movie or even leaving little notes in airports for his fans, it's seems like he can do no wrong.

And wait until you listen to him reading Shout Out To My Ex, Walter White shtyle.

Bryan was being interviewed by BBC Radio One during the week and they asked him to read out the lyrics to the Little Mix hit.

We have to say, he totally killed it. And of course, his fans loved it too:



When Tom Vaughan-Lawlor first appeared on our screens as Love/Hate baddie Nidge we knew the Dundrum native was something special, and now it seems Oscar nominee Bryan Cranston agrees.

The Breaking Bad lead has described Tom as “dangerously talented” after getting to know the Trinity graduate while working with him on their upcoming movie The Infiltrator.

Brian told The Irish Sun: “Tom was a dream to work with. An absolute dream. Immensely talented, I’d go as far to say, dangerously talented.”

He said: “[Tom’s] sensibilities and his instincts were always on point. He’s chameleonic in his performance.”

“It was a masterclass and he will conquer wherever and whatever he does in the future.”

“And not to mention, [he was] a genuinely lovely warm guy. But that’s what you always get with the Irish.”  Awh Brian, you sure know how to say the right things!

The Infiltrator is based on the true story of a US agent who went undercover to break down Pablo Escobar's famous drug trafficking gang.

The movie is set for released this September.

While we adored the relationship between Jesse Pinkman and Walter White in Breaking Bad, the dynamic that existed between Walter and Saul Goodman had us totally gripped.

Offering some very welcome comic relief in a show which generally had us gnawing on our nails, Bob Odenkirk's character was destined to have his own spin-off show, and when Better Call Saul hit Netflix, Breaking Bad die-hards were all over it.

And it looks like the show, which has enjoyed two seasons so far, has one pretty famous fan in the form of Bob's former co-star, Bryan Cranston.

Commenting on the possibility he might make a cameo in the show which documents Saul's life and career before crossing path with Walter White, Bryan was all OVER it.

"If they were to call me and say, 'We have this idea, we'd like…' I would say, 'Yes, you don't have to finish the pitch, I'm there. What do you want me to do?"

Acknowledging that his cameo must fit in with the producers' broader vision, Bryan continued: "I'll do whatever they want."

"I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and storylines, and it wouldn't be something like, 'Oh, isn't that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing?' It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I'm all in," he said.

The show was renewed for a third season earlier this year, and we can't WAIT for the moment a certain Mr. White pops up!

Preach Walt, preach.



There will always be a Breaking Bad shaped hole in our hearts since the show ended in 2013.

But, it gives us joy to know that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are still BFFs.

The pair met up to do a skit on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and it was possibly the best reunion we've seen in years.

To mark Bryan's 60th birthday, the lads did a Super Sweet 60 video, taking the mick from the old MTV TV show Super Sweet 16.

At one point in the 15 minute segment, the former Malcom in the Middle star wears five crowns, stacked on top of each other, and begins to cry.

Watch and laugh… and then cry because it's all over.




Better Call Saul has been known to start off slow but then end with big things, and how much bigger can you get than bringing back Jesse Pinkman.

Yep, it seems that Aaron Paul may be reprising his role as the meth-head genius in the new season of the drama-filled show.

While doing a Q&A on Reddit, one user asked if he might be turning up again and it seemed that Aaron had a bit of a stumble before answering.

He said "…maybe I already shot it? …maybe it's airing this season? I don't know. Well, actually, I do know but you'll have to watch and see."

Hmm, seems pretty promising.

We just want to know now whether it'll be one of them black and white flashback moments or whether Jesse will actually be BACK.


The 59-year old Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has been keeping busy since the much-loved series came to an end in 2013.

The Emmy award winner has 14 projects currently in development at his production company Moon Shot Entertainment.

The actor recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about how he’s still trying to find his groove after playing the role of a lifetime on the fan favourite series. After his run as Walter White admits that he has certainly become more recognisable, which is something he’s not quite used to.

“I've been really poor, foreclose-on-your-house poor. And I've been rich. Rich is better. But I'm just now starting to get used to the hour of fame.”

He explains that now that he has spent more time in the spotlight, he is approached by fans much more often. Apparently, not all of them want to shower him with praise either.

He explains: “they have this sensibility where they feel comfortable coming up to you and saying, "You know that thing you did? I didn't like that movie."

When asked does he like his ‘hour of fame’, he had an interesting response:

“Being [famous] is almost like being a pregnant woman. People think they can just put their hand on your belly and tell you, "Oh, you're going to have a boy!" 

He likened it to having “a complete stranger fondling you.” Pleasant.

He explained that while it’s not always congratulations that people want to pass on to him, he just glad that people are watching his projects.

“I'd rather have people fiercely angry with me so long as they're moved to some emotion.”

The third season of the Emmy award-winning series Orange Is The New Black has now been released on Netflix – a full six hours ahead of schedule.

The uproarious drama was set to be shared on the streaming site this evening, but Netflix delighted OITNB fans this morning when it announced over Twitter that the series was live.

Safe to say we know what we’ll be doing this weekend!

This dark and gritty yet hilariously real drama-comedy has proved a huge hit with audiences since being unveiled two years ago.

So what's its sercret? Firstly, it is one of very few shows that competes at the top of the ‘quality TV’ genre that has a cast made up of almost entirely women.

While many shows have strong leading female women (think House Of Cards and Breaking Bad) that are the driving forces in the show, they still, to a certain extent, are there to play counterpart to the predominantly male leads.

While Claire Underwood and Skyler White are undoubtedly the portrayal of sound reason and logic in their respective shows, it is still the characters played by Kevin Spacey and Bryan Cranston that take the lead. 

But not in Orange is the New Black. With a cast that boasts a host of totally diverse women, and characters with real depth, the show brings a sense of brutal realism to its audience.

The show is based on the 2010 memoir of Piper Kerman, whose seemingly perfect middle-class life was interrupted when she had to serve a 12-month prison sentence for drug offences that were committed years earlier.

So where are we now?

At the end of season two Piper (Taylor Schilling) had ratted on her former lover Alex (Laura Prepon). Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) had escaped from prison, only to be run over by another fugitive.

We can’t wait to see where season 3 is going to pick up from. So, cancel all your weekend plans, the OITNB race is on!
