The studio first choice to play Walter White was

they wanted John Cusack or Matthew Broderick. That would have ruined Breaking Bad IMO

But Vince (the creator got his way in the end) Phone Post 3.0

Then again, who would have guessed that the dad from malcolm in the middle couldplay such a badass? People can suprise you i guess. Phone Post 3.0

Matthew Broderick has sex with Sarah Jessica Parker, and likes it.

I think Cusack could have pulled it off' Broderick would have made the show last 1 season at best.

Matthew Broderick could've pulled it off. Cusack couldn't, at all.. Def Brian Cranston was the correct choice. Him or Mickey rourke lol. Phone Post 3.0

It was Cranston's performance in an X-file ep that convinced Vince to choose him. Vince worked on X-Files.

Give me a shtickle of fluoride.
