Countdown to Breaking Bad!!! - Page 190

To the thought that Walt was fantasizing the ending...he would have had a better fantasy. He would have reconciled with Skyler and Flynn, etc.

Has this loose end been addressed.

There were 7 barrels filled with the Blue Meth money and Jack gives one barrel back to Walt. We know what ultimately happens to that barrel.

But what happens to the other 6 barrels of money when Jack and the Nazis are killed in the final scenes?

I'm guessing it might be found during the DEA investigation. The money stopped being important to the story, though, when Uncle Jack tried to barter for his life with its location and Walt didn't care and shot him anyway.

Do you not recall Jack trying to say you'll never find your money if you kill me, and Walt shooting him immediately after?

I don't think it was addressed. I think that was the point though, that for once Walt stopped caring about the money.

I was reading that the chemistry in BB is pretty accurate, but I am curious if they tested how much those barrels could hold. If we assume the movie was right that it could about $10M, that's 100,000 $100 bills, which would weigh about 220 lbs.

Before Walt kills Jack, he is told by Jack, "You can't kill me or you'll never know where the money is". And then Walt blows him away anyway.

I think you're right about the symbolism of Walt not caring about the money anymore.

Though in theory he did take care of his family through the Elliot and Gretchen maneuver.

CANNES — Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of DreamWorks Animation, told an audience of TV execs at the Mipcom mart in Cannes that six weeks ago he offered to commission three extra episodes — totaling 180 minutes — of “Breaking Bad.” He offered to pay $25 million per episode, he said.

The episodes would continue from where the show ended.

“I had this crazy idea. I was nuts for the show. I had no idea where this season was going,” he said during the keynote session at Mipcom.

“The last series cost about $3.5 million an episode. So they would make more profit from these three shows than they made from five years of the entire series,” he said.

He explained that he had intended to show the extra content as six-minute segments over 30 days online.

“I said (to them), ‘I’m going to create the greatest pay-per-view television event for scripted programming anybody’s ever done,’ ” he explained.

He planned to charge viewers from around 50 cents to 99 cents per episode.

However, this was before Katzenberg knew where the “Breaking Bad” creative team were taking the storyline, which meant his idea was a non-starter.

Katzenberg told the anecdote to illustrate his belief in the commercial potential of short-form content online.

“I share the story with you only to tell you that I have the courage of my convictions in this. I just think that there is a whole new platform for (short form) entertainment … and the higher the quality of the stuff that fills it, the higher people will be paid for the work that they are doing there,” he said.

^ Gilligan and the writers don't need the money.

They took the "missing" six barrels of money and split it up among themselves.

Anthony Hopkins' letter to Bryan Cranston after watching Breaking Bad for the first time in a marathon session.
Quote:
Dear Mister Cranston.

I wanted to write you this email – so I am contacting you through Jeremy Barber – I take it we are both represented by UTA . Great agency.

I’ve just finished a marathon of watching "BREAKING BAD" – from episode one of the First Season – to the last eight episodes of the Sixth Season. (I downloaded the last season on AMAZON) A total of two weeks (addictive) viewing.

I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!

Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen – ever.

I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bullshit in this business, and I’ve sort of lost belief in anything really.

But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (that over used word) awesome.

From what started as a black comedy, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction and hell. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.

If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is endless.

Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.

You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.

That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It’s almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.

Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.

Best regards

Tony Hopkins.

^ wow.. really? that's cool.
post #2850 of 2875
He forgot Giancarlo Esposito, who gets my vote as the second best performance in a killer cast. But otherwise, yeah, very cool. Hard to think of many things cooler for an actor than getting that kind of unsolicited compliment from a legend.
