Walter White Breaks Bad, Faces Meth Charges....Seriously
Let me save you the trouble: you read that headline 100-percent correctly. Walter White has to answer for meth charges.
And no, you are not tripping balls so hard that you're hallucinating that side-by-side picture to the left.
Walter Eddy White broke bad. He broke very bad. How bad?
He was arrested in 2008 on methamphetamine trafficking, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of precursor materials materials charges, but was given probation in 2010. He was on probation right up until his involvement in a recent Tuscaloosa, Ala., meth manufacturing case violated it, People.com reported.
Not that it bears overstating what everybody's probably already noticed, but not only does he share a name with the lead character of AMC's "Breaking Bad," but he looks remarkably, coincidentally, unsettlingly like actor Bryan Cranston. Over the show's four preceding seasons heading into its current fifth and final one, Cranston won three consecutive Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Emmy Awards from 2008 to 2010 playing the chemistry teacher who turns to cooking meth to support his family as he combats cancer. He's nominated again this year.
So, yeah. That happened.
There you have it, folks. Clearly, the Universe has absolutely nothing better to do than troll cable drama fans.
Or it just decided to challenge whether there were yet-stranger, verifiable events I could report.
