Anthony Hopkins Pens ‘Brilliant’ ‘Breaking Bad’ Fan Letter
Breaking Bad binge-viewings are not uncommon in this day and age. Indeed, one of Hollywood’s most treasured actors recently powered through the entire AMC drama during a “total of two weeks [of] (addictive) viewing”: none other than Anthony Hopkins.
In a letter addressed to Bryan Cranston, Hopkins wrote that he’s “never watched anything like” Breaking Bad, going on to praise Cranston’s performance as Walter White as “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,” he wrote. “But this work of yours is spectacular — absolutely stunning.”

Elsewhere in Breaking Bad land, The Hollywood Reporter investigated the origin story of “Dance Bitch,” the new techno track from producers Tom Neville and Zen Freeman, featuring Aaron Paul uttering the words “Dance, bitch!” on a loop. The idea for the track began shortly after Paul’s wedding, which was DJed by Freeman.
“Zen’s been a friend of mine for years,” said Paul. “Being that he’s a DJ and around so much dance music, we talked about the idea of doing something fun together.”
