Ellen: Christian Slater Breaking In
Veteran actor Christian Slater has been trying to break in to television for years. It’s only fitting that his best chance to do so is on a series called Breaking In.
The Fox sitcom is kicking off its second season, and Christian Slater sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about what he’s been up to.

Among the new developments for the show is the addition of Megan Mullally as the new head of the security firm where the characters work.
Christian Slater Gardening
Christian told Ellen that he was inspired to take up the hobby of gardening after picking up herbs and seed packets at Whole Foods. I don’t know that he is in great shape, since he can’t seem to even pronounce Basil correctly.
He said he expected his plant to die, but instead it grew when he watered it. Ellen was as impressed as I am that he figured out the basic concept of gardening.
Christian Slater Celebrity Tomato
Among the vegetables in his garden is the Celebrity Tomato. He brought a picture of the sigle tomato his plant has sprouted, a modest success at best.
He actually brought the tomato as a gift to Ellen, and I will concede that it’s an enormous tomato. When you consider that he’s growing all this on his balcony, I guess that’s not bad.
Christian Slater Cat Rescue
Christian recently rescued a cat from his girlfriend’s sister, who was going off to college and couldn’t continue to care for the stray she’d adopted. The cat’s name is Thunder, and Christian brought a picture of it curled up in his laundry.
“That’s Thunder in my pants,” he explained. He said Thunder is a Hemingway cat, with extra toes. “She’s a mutant cat, but I love her.”
Christian said he would work on teaching her sign language.
Christian Slater Litter Robot Review
He said he’s working on house training the cat using a self-cleaning litter box called the Litter Robot. He said he shows off the appliance to his guests, because he is so impressed with its efficiency.
“Sounds like a fun time at your house,” Ellen observed.
