Today Show: Breaking Bad Cast Emmys
Al Roker also sat down with the cast of Breaking Bad. Al Roker wondered how the cast was. Bryan Cranston said, “Onscreen, we’re a little dysfunctional. But off-screen, we’re a little dysfunctional.”
Al Roker asked Bryan why he kissed Julia Louis-Dreyfus before she went up for her win. “But why not? Don’t ask why. Ask why not,” he said.
Then Bryan Cranston said he needed some mustache wax, so he dug his finger into costar Aaron Paul’s ear and used it to twirl his mustache. Al Roker joked that he thought maybe the show ended just about where it should have, because the cast was too close.
