‘Breaking Bad’ Cast Reunites on Stage at the 2024 SAG Awards: See the Photos

[ad_1] It was a Breaking Bad reunion at the 2024 SAG Awards on Saturday, and this time, they could use NSFW language.  Presenting the award for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Jonathan Banks, Betsy Brandt, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, RJ Mitte and Anna Gunn appeared arm in arm on stage a full decade after their hit AMC show came to an end. “10 years ago, we were proud to receive the SAG Award for Ensemble in a Drama Series,” said Cranston, 67, who starred as the formidable and downright daunting Walter White. “Tonight, we’re thrilled to bestow it on another group of actors.” Things quickly went off the rails from there, with Gunn — who played Skyler White, the wife of Cranston’s character — starting a “cheesy” bit where the cast was to go through each letter from the word “ensemble” and break it out individually.  Getty Images “Ensemble – the E stands for the excellence that each cast member brings to every exciting episode,” Gunn, 55, said before Odenkirk, 61, …

Argylle’s Twists and Post-Credits Scene, Explained

Argylle’s Twists and Post-Credits Scene, Explained

[ad_1] This post contains spoilers for Argylle. Update, February 2, 12:30 p.m. ET: The actual writers of Argylle, the book, have been revealed: Terry Hayes, an Australian author and screenwriter best known for 2013’s I Am Pilgrim, and Tammy Cohen, a British writer of psychological thrillers. The pair went public in an interview with The Telegraph. Both Hayes and Cohen were previously floated by Vanity Fair as prime suspects for authorship of Argylle. “God, I hope all the people that pre-ordered on the basis that Taylor wrote it aren’t disappointed,” Cohen told the publication in reference to the popular theory that Taylor Swift was behind the book. “I hope they are!” Hayes quipped. “If that’s why they buy a book, they deserve every punishment they get.” The hardest part of keeping their involvement with the project a secret for the last three years was “not being able to tell my support group of writer friends who I ring up every time I get into a mess,” Cohen said. “And also trying to account for a …

Where Have All the Original Action Movies Gone?

Where Have All the Original Action Movies Gone?

[ad_1] Matthew Vaughn’s Argylle borrows from a lot of very recent spy-thriller history. Apple TV+ January 31, 2024, 2:35 PM ET I have to give some credit to Matthew Vaughn’s new film, Argylle, for one thing: It is not—repeat, not—based on anything. An action movie with a reported near–$200 million budget and no connection to any preexisting intellectual property should be thrilling, a glorious throwback to the days when big films could just be about people punching and shooting each other without referencing some other storytelling universe. But it’s been curious to watch the public perception of Argylle, which is being marketed as a mystery film, in the lead-up to its release. Surely this movie couldn’t be just another guns-blazing spy thriller? What is the twist at the heart of Argylle? Did Taylor Swift secretly write it? I will leave many of the movie’s largest plot swerves to be discovered by viewers, though I can at least say that Swift seemingly has no involvement. But the meta-narratives around Argylle are quite telling, indicating how unusual …

Bryan Cranston on Recent Reunion With Frankie Muniz and Possible ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ Revival (Exclusive)

Bryan Cranston on Recent Reunion With Frankie Muniz and Possible ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ Revival (Exclusive)

[ad_1] Bryan Cranston is still a father figure to his on-screen sons from Malcolm in the Middle — especially Frankie Muniz.  In December, Cranston had an emotional reunion with Muniz after the actor surprised him during an event for Cranston and Aaron Paul’s Dos Hombres Mezcal. In a clip that went viral on social media, Muniz carries a case of the mezcal to a table, surprising an unsuspecting Cranston. When he notices his on-screen son, Cranston becomes emotional as he reaches across the table to hug him.  “Playing a father on television was easy for me because I’m a father in real life and, and so on Malcolm [in the Middle] for seven years, these boys were my boys,” he tells ET’s Nischelle Turner about reconnecting with Muniz. “And that doesn’t stop when the camera stops. You still have this love and affinity for them. And I’m very very proud of them as now, adults. They’re all adults and they’re all doing very well. And that makes me the happiest because they made it through the …
