Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul stars in 'Need for Speed'
As studios scrabble around for well-established material that can possibly be spun into a lucrative big-screen franchise, the videogame seriesNeed for Speed must have seemed like a no-brainer.
Aaron Paul [R] in 'Need for Speed'
Not only is this the most successful racing game in history, but it would also catch the attention of Fast & Furious franchise fans. To date there have been 22 games based on the original 1994 game, which allowed players to race using different cars on a variety of tracks.
Continue reading: Is 'Need For Speed' The Next Big Racing Franchise?
It's difficult to understand how a movie about fast cars, tough guys and feisty women could be so little fun to watch. But the filmmakers, working from a popular videogame, have managed to make something only a gaming nerd could love. It's strikingly well shot, with a likeable cast and an eye-catching use of real stuntwork, but the limp script leaves it utterly joyless. Just a tiny hint of self-awareness goes a long way in these kinds of movies.
Our hero is Toby (Paul), a super-talented driver and mechanic stuck in small-town New York while his high school rival Dino (Cooper) makes millions on the racing circuit. Dino has also stolen Toby's ex-girlfriend (Johnson), and rubs salt in the wound by asking Toby to fix up a wildly valuable Mustang for him. Toby needs the cash to save his garage, so takes on the job with his pals (Cudi, Malek and Rodriguez). But things take a dark turn when Dino leaves Toby to take the fall for manslaughter. And when he gets out of prison two years later, Toby vows to get revenge, working with hellcat racing chick Julia (Poots) to enter the underground winner-take-all race organised by a radio deejay (Keaton).
Despite trying to fool us with various plot twists, the film's script is so by-the-books that we can predict everything that will happen next. So as it heads to its jaw-droppingly implausible finale, there isn't a single moment that surprises us. All we can do is try to engage with the characters, but they take themselves so seriously that this isn't easy. Clearly, director Waugh is much more interested in the cars than the people. So at least the driving scenes are visceral and sometimes thrilling in that choreographed stunt-driver sort of way. And they're notable because there isn't a digital effect in sight.

Have your say in our poll below
If anyone needed convincing that Aaron Paul is well and truly typecast as Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad, then one look at his press run for Need for Speed should do the trick: the actor has been talking about a possible return to the hit meth drama by starring in the prequel spin-off, Better Call Saul. But should he be going back to the franchise that made career what it is today?
Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston as Jesse and Walter White in Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad was and will forever be remembered as one of the finest shows ever to grace the small screen, but if Paul wants to shake off that Jesse tag ever, perhaps distancing himself from Better Call Saul would be a wiser move. What’s more is that spin-offs have a tendency to be – for want of a better word – rubbish.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have been named 'most romantic couple' in a survey, what other couples throughout history deserve the title?
Prince William and his longterm love, Kate Middleton, have been crowned ‘the most romantic celebrity couple’ in a recent survey. Other couples included in the survey were Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Jay-Z and Beyonce.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have been named most romantic couple in a survey
William and Kate famously met while studying together at St. Andrews University in Edinburgh. The couple have been together for over ten years and recently Kate gave birth to their first child together. There’s something very honest and real about Kate and Wills’ relationship, we’d love to have been a fly on the wall of their student house! Since their engagement, Kate has become hugely popular as a style icon and a national treasure, much in the way William’s own mother, Princess Diana, did before her.
Big Mike's back, and we couldn't be happier
For those of you who thought you’d seen the last of Mike Ehrmantraut, his return for the Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, will come as an exciting revelation. But there’s more to Jonathan Banks’ role reprisal.
Jonathan Banks is back for more Breaking Bad action
No doubt we'll see Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul pop up as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman at some point in the new spin off, and of course Bob Odenkirk will be playing Saul again. We get the feeling Banks is going to play a far more important role.
Check out the trailer for the black comedy below

Another Breaking Bad actor has joined the cast of the spinoff Better Call Saul
The Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul will feature at least two familiar faces on its cast, as Jonathan Banks has been announced to join the production. On Breaking Bad, Banks played everyone’s favorite serial killer for hire, Mike Ehrmantraut and he is going to reprise the role in the Albuquerque-set prequel, The Hollywood Reporter confirms, based on statements from AMC and Sony reps.
Banks will reprise his role as killer-for-hire Mike Ehrmantraut.
Banks himself is yet to comment on the news. On the inevitable danger of sequel fatigue, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan had this to say back in October: "There's obviously a danger inherent in doing a spinoff, but I just love the character of Saul Goodman [Odenkirk] so much, and part of me doesn't want to say no to this world."
Martin Sharp is a disgraced TV presenter whose ambitions and family have been destroyed by his own stupid mistakes. Now feeling deeply lost and humiliated he finds that the only way to proceed is to commit suicide by leaping from the top of a London skyscraper aptly known as Topper's Tower. However, as he prepares to end his life on New Year's Eve, he is interrupted by Maureen, a middle-aged single mother also looking for a way out. Not only that, but the pair are soon joined by angst-ridden teenager Jess who also wants to jump from the roof, and then bemused pizza delivery boy and failed musician JJ after that. The four form a bond and sign a pact that they will not kill themselves before Valentine's Day in a bid to help each other get their lives back on track. When they decide to share their unusual story with the rest of the world, they become media stars and finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
'A Long Way Down' is a heartwarming comedy drama based on the bestselling novel by Nick Hornby ('About A Boy', 'High Fidelity'). The screenplay has been adapted by Jack Thorne ('The Fades', 'This Is England') and the movie directed by Pascal Chaumeil ('Heartbreaker', 'Un plan parfait'). 'A Long Way Down' is due for release on March 21st 2014.
It's that time again - a week of innovative, independent films. Oh, goody!
With the Twilight franchise firmly behind her, Kristen Stewart has moved on to bigger and better things – namely the Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-Ray, which debuted during the first day of the Sundance Film Festival on Friday. Other titles from Friday include “Whiplash,” the surprise hit starring Miles Teller and Aaron Paul’s first post-Breaking Bad project, Hellion.
Aaron Paul stars in the coming of age drama Hellion.
The film is so far receiving moderate reviews – according to The Huffington Post, there are some things that work and some that don’t and Stewart’s performance is simply described as “fine”. Stewart plays Amy Cole – a private stationed at Guantanamo, whose job it is to make sure the detainees stay alive. According to the Huff Post review, the film carries a strong message, but the execution makes it slightly boring and too contained within its setting. Still, it’s probably a good thing that Kristen Stewart has moved so far away from the teen movie genre. Maybe.
Several films due to be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival are generating a hefty amount of conversation
The Sundance Film Festival is the place to be for young, aspiring filmmakers hoping to crack into the hotly-contested business of the movies. By the end of the film festival, which this year runs from 16-26 January, there are always a selection of film titles that are revived for the following awards season, and this year people are so eager for the celluloid showcase that a number of early contenders for festival glory have been marked before their debut release.
The dark God's Pocket stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Eddie Marsan
In thirty years the film has discovered some of the most promising filmmakers out there and continues to deliver, from Roland Joffé’s The Killing Fields in the festival's opening year (1985) to last year's most notable success; Fruitvale Station, the debut feature length from Ryan Coogler. With another 120 films to get through this year it seems more than likely that at least one of the releases will be leaving Park City, Utah, with more than a few skiing lessons and a commemorative t-shirt.
Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston are both sad 'Breaking Bad' ended, and they are hoping to keep their characters in their lives.
The end of Breaking Bad may have been the most traumatic event of 2013 for many TV fans. Not because of the actual ending, but because such a loved show would be no longer be on the air. Two people who were very traumatized by the end of the show were its stars — Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston.

Paul spoke with Details magazine about what the future holds, but he is hoping to keep his Breaking Bad character in his life.
One Direction and Beyoncé also ranked high up the list of 2013's most charitable celebrities
On the back of arguably her most successful year as a recording artist, 2013 has also seen Taylor Swift give, give and give as she was crowned the most charitable star of 2013. In the 'Top 20 Celebs Gone Good' list compiled by DoSomething.org, Swift was crowned the most giving celebrity of the year by the non-profit charity group following a year of helping the under-privileged.
Swift helped raise cash with Bon Jovi and Prince William with their rendition of 'Livin' on a Prayer'
In the past twelve months, Swift has donated $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony and raised money for the homeless in London with Bon Jovi and Prince William, but other than just giving away her money, Taylor has also given away plenty of her valuable time for charitable causes too. In addition to fronting group therapy sessions for her bullied fans, Swift has also pledged her time to a number of younger fans facing serious troubles. Among them, Taylor met with a 7-year-old fan named Grace Markel, who was struck down by a car on the way to a previous performance by Swift, before a show in September. She also spent some of her Christmas Day on the phone to a cancer-stricken fan who was spending the holidays in hospital.

Newcomers like 'House of Cards' and 'Master of Sex' replace the old guards like 'Mad Men' and 'Homefront' in the TV noms
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were revealed this week and although there were few surprises in the movie nominations; in the television categories however, it's time for change in the established order of critically-acclaimed TV. Former nomination regulars like Mad Men and Homefront are nowhere to be seen in the nominees lists, replaced instead by the new order of critically-acclaimed shows.
Master of Sex, along with House of Cards, is now the show to beat
Master of Sex and House of Cards now look like the shows to beat, with Breaking Bad making what will be its final appearance at the Golden Globes with the series ending this year. This comes just a year after Homeland achieved the impressive feat of winning Best Drama Series, Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor all in one night, although this does mark the second year in a row that the 2007-2009 winner Mad Men has not appeared in the Best Drama category.
Struggling for a baby name? Stick Breaking Bad, Season 2, Episode 6 on.
Forget the philosophers, inventors, revolutionaries, innovators and visionaries from history, fictionalised drug dealers and their wives are the prime influences for the next generation and what we should call them. Breaking Bad’s reach seems to have stretched further than we thought.
Jesse's been pretty popular; Walter not so much, wonder why?
The Walts, Jesses and Skylers have all risen up the baby names chart with the culmination of the hit drama back in September. And what’s more, the three names enjoyed increased popularity despite the Royal wedding and baby, with parents not wanting to be labelled ‘Kate copycats’, apparently.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Vin Diesel lead the tributes following the star's sudden passing
Following the tragic passing of actor Paul Walker earlier this week, there has been an outpouring of emotion from Hollywood on behalf of the 40-year-old actor. A number of celebrities have taken to their social media accounts to send their condolences to Walker's family and pay tribute to the fallen star.
Paul's death has shocked Hollywood, and the rest of the world
Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, both died in the fiery crash on Saturday, 30 November, after Rodas lost control of his Porsche Carrera GT and crashed it into a light post and a tree. The car burst into flames upon impact and both Walker and Rodas were pronounced dead at the scene. The crash occurred as the pair were leaving a fundraising event for Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide, which was aiming to raise money for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan at the time.

The screen legend wrote a letter of appraisal to the star of the hit series in which he praised his acting ability
Breaking Bad has no shortage of famous fans, but Sir Anthony Hopkins might just be the biggest name to go on the record and declare out loud just how much of a boss Bryan Cranston is. The Oscar-winner recently went on a binge-watching session and got through all five seasons of the show, after which he was so impressed that he just had to write to Cranston and tell him how much he enjoyed his portrayal as Walter White/Heisenberg.
If he though Cranston's Walter White was good, he should see the roller skating scene from Malcolm in the Middle
This wasn't just some loved-up, 'OMG i fink u so hot' letter from the Welsh thespian, this was a serious appraisal from the Silence of the Lambs actor, who declared Cranston performance throughout the five seasons as the best acting he had ever seen!
Spoilers for people who haven't seen the finale: Felina
After 62 episodes, clocking in at over 30 hours, it’s fair to say audiences had invested somewhat in the trials and tribulations of Walter White in Breaking Bad. Ending such a monumental journey is difficult – as the writers would attest – but choosing the perfect song can ease the pressure somewhat.
And that’s exactly what music supervisor Thomas Golubic did; he chose the right song.

Spoilers. Spoilers that will ruin the best show ever made. You have been warned.
It’s difficult to fathom a world without Breaking Bad. From the formative earlier episodes to the wrap-up job done by the last half of the fifth season, we’ve come to love and care for Walter, Jesse, Hank, Skyler, Marie and Walter Jr. And Mike. Don’t forget Mike. But instead of mourning the passing of such a giant, it’s important to celebrate the brilliant times it brought us.
Breaking Bad was - and is - a behemoth of modern television. While The Wire and The Sopranos brought us the inner dealings of criminal gangs in New Jersey and Baltimore, commenting on social injustice along the way, BrBa provided a new landscape to romanticize – it was something truly original, borrowing enough tropes of writing gone by to remain familiar.

To promote the new SNL season, guest host Tina Fey imitates iconic swimsuit image.
Last weekend's Emmy Awards saw a host of beautifully dressed television stars go home with all manner of awards but, unfortunately for comedian Tina Fey, the word on everybody's lips was "nip-slip."

As she headed to the stage to collect her joint award for comedy writing with Tracy Wigfield, her blue gown loosened revealing a sudden flash of nipple. The internet exploded into giggles and retweeted photos of the actress with blurring or 'Censored' strips over her boob.

There are SPOILERS in this review of the final episode of Breaking Bad.
In many ways it didn’t matter how Breaking Bad ended; the journey was such that the show’s quality was undeniable. And if the journey ended like The Sopranos, Dexter or Seinfeld – i.e., caught up in a maelstrom of controversy and disappointed losers – then so be it.
It's sad to see them go, but what a way to go
But Breaking Bad was, and is, amazing.

Crime drama 'Breaking Bad' was victorious at this year's Emmy awards, but the big surprise was the political drama 'House of Cards' which became the first internet streamed program to win an Emmy.
The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards are now officially over and the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles held quite an eventful award ceremony.
AMC's Breaking Bad was victorious, as predicted, at this year's Emmys, finally winning 'Outstanding Drama Series' after previously been overlooked for the past three years.
Bryan Cranston plays the anti-hero Walter White
'Ozymandias', the latest episode of 'Breaking Bad', attracted the largest audience in the show's history, at approximately 6.4 million.
Breaking Bad continues to draw record breaking crowds in the lead up to its finale. The crime drama, following the exploits of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), the chemistry teacher and crystal meth cook and his former student side-kick Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), has become one of the most talked about series in television history.

The star of the Alien quad-rilogy has signed on to star in the British director's upcoming biblical epic
Sigourney Weaver is re-teaming with the man who gave her her big break; Ridley Scott, to co-star in the director's upcoming Bible epic Exodus.

We bring you the latest (very spoiler-y) Breaking Bad recap.
In last night’s episode of Breaking Bad, boasting the slightly soap opera-ish title Confessions, Walt continued to openly and shamelessly manipulated his family, while Jesse continued his confused – not so much in this episode - search for identity. Now might be a good time to make that spoiler warning – anything you read ahead will probably contain a massive spoiler for the eleventh episode of season 5, so if you haven’t watched it, you might want to switch over to the Jesse Pinkman Guide For Identifying B*****s or something.
We get it. He is the one who knocks.
The episode saw Hank still looking for a way to expose his brother-in-law as Heisenberg, which drove Walt to all but abandon any pretense that he wasn’t, in fact, a drug kingpin. During a particularly tense dinner with with Hank, Skyler and Marie, he shows Hank exactly why it wasn’t a good idea to mess with the real Heisenberg – in his most cold-blooded display to date, Walter plays an audio confession, exposing himself as the lowly chemist behind Heisenberg’s massive operation, while the real mastermind is exposed as agent Hank Shrader. The story makes perfect use of Hank’s notable temper outbursts, as well as his connection to Gus Fring.

You know something is a pop culture phenomenon, when it gets its own youtube parody. Or forty.
Let’s talk about Breaking Bad – again. It’s what the internet is talking about anyway. Breaking Bad parodies are sort of like the new Harlem Shake video, except they’re older than the Harlem Shake and quite a bit funnier, too. These are watchable past the third one. As it turns out, even something as serious as “the meth game” is subject to the noble art of parody. And when you mix Taylor Swift lyrics with degenerate criminals, hilarity ensues. So without further ado, here are this writer’s personal Top 5 Breaking Bad parodies, in no particular order.
One thing Breaking Bad isn't is funny. Or so we thought.
We Are Never Ever Gonna Cook Together. Of course, the list has to start with the aforementioned Taylor Swift reference. Because it’s quite possibly the funniest thing out there. Walt and Jesse’s relationship is so perfectly summed up in some of the lyrics, it’s almost eerie. But we won’t spoil it for you. Watch below.
There's life after Breaking Bad, we promise
The end of Breaking Bad is near; season five part two has finally started, and will wrap up after seven more episodes on September 27th. But don’t be too sad, we know it’ll be a thrill-ride, and once it’s over, there’s plenty more to look forward to.
The casting choice of Bryan Cranston as Walter White was a stroke of genius. His previous work as Hal in Malcolm in The Middle had some people confused, but eventually his reputation added to his transformation from goofy work-a-day father to drug lynchpin; that and his Emmy award-winning performances.
Breaking Bad's final season premiere drew an audience of 5.9 million viewers, breaking the show's record.
Breaking Bad's final season premiered to an audience of 5.9 million. The critically acclaimed AMC drama, broke records on Sunday (11th August) by attracting a record breaking number of viewers. The number doubled the number who watched last year's opening episode.
Breaking Bad follows the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), the high school chemistry teacher who, with the help of dealer Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), becomes Albuquerque's major crystal meth dealer.

Could "Hell On Wheels" turn into another hit for AMC?
There’s a lot to watch out for this weekend, as various shows kick off new seasons (and of course, there are the Teen Choice Awards tonight, for the five people, who still watch those), but the big winner is, without a doubt, AMC. The channel, which started off introducing its viewers to old, classic (more or less) movies from the comfort of their own home, has definitely moved on to bigger and, uh, more morally questionable things – this is now the channel that brings you The Walking Dead, Mad Men and, finally, this weekend, the season premieres of Breaking Bad and Hell on Wheels.
Walter White returns tonight for one last hurrah.
There are still a few hours to go, before we come face to face with the monster that became of Walter White – let’s face it, none of us can stop watching – but the premiere of Hell on Wheels was last night and it left many people wondering, could this be AMC’s next Breaking Bad-scale hit?
The show's researchers do a remarkably good job of keeping the chemistry accurate, but when they slip, the Internet learns about it fast.
It’s Breaking Bad weekend! Well, almost – the now iconic show returns for its final 8-episode run this Sunday and it’s all anyone can talk about – this staff writer included, of course. So, without further ado, here are the top four facts we bet you didn’t know about Breaking Bad (and which, objectively, you probably don’t need to know.)
Bryan Cranston looking almost as badass as his character.
1. The meth crystals shouldn’t be blue. According to a recent article in The Business Insider, the crystals of supposedly ultra-uber-pure methamphetamine that Walter White is known for producing… should be clear. If they didn’t have any impurities, the crystals should be completely clear and even impurities (or a special ingredient by Walt) should not give them a blue, but rather, a yellowish tinge. So does that mean the secret ingredient is love? We doubt it.

Breaking Bad's final season is due to air on Sunday (11th August) night. With tensions between the two lead characters at breaking point and a tradition of violence, it seems likely the show will have an unexpected and explosive finale.
Breaking Bad's final season has created speculation amongst fans and even the show's own writers, as to how to kill off the characters.
The producer and creator of Breaking Bad, Vinci Gilligan, at The Film Society of Lincoln Center and AMC's celebration of the show, Lincoln Center, New York.
The eight-part final series promises high tension and the continuation of violent deaths. The inevitable possibility of ending Breaking Bad by killing off the lead character is causing the show's writers some sleepless nights. Vince Gilligan, the producer and creator, is leading the team of writers who cannot decide on how to kill off one of the show's lead characters.
The cast of TV drama 'Breaking Bad' arrive for The Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York where AMC celebrate that last episodes of the TV series. The stars including creator Vince Gilligan and main star Bryan Cranston sign autographs and take pictures with fans outside the venue.
Many received a distinction, but the AMC drama was the talk of the night.
Breaking Bad, the TV drama, which is just heading into its final 8-episode run, won top honors at this Saturday’s TV Critics Association Awards. The show won for program of the year among a number of highly acclaimed and successful TV productions, some of which don’t typically get recognized by the Emmys.
Breaking Bad emerged as the topic of the night.
Game of Thrones was another one of the night’s biggest winners, taking the honor in the category of best drama, while Big Bang Theory and Parks and Recreation had to split the title of best comedy. Tatiana Maslany of BBC America’s Orphan Black and Louis CK of FX’s Louis were both recognised as outstanding achievement in the drama and comedy categories, respectively, while Barbara Walters received the career achievement award. For Walters, the award comes right on the heels of her announcement that she will be retiring from broadcast journalism in a years time. This was probably why the TV Critics Association chose his particular time to honor Walters with the distinction.
Let's hope Jesse found a safe place for the keys!
Possibly the most symbolic visual from Breaking Bad, ‘the RV’ gave Walter and Jesse a way to cook meth – they could drive out way into the desert and knock up a batch of the blue stuff, far safer than setting up on Jesse’s basement, as we all know. Spoilers ahead, just so you know.
There's the iconic yellow smoke, but where are the bullit holes?
So to see that hulking great piece of metal cruise on up – driven by none other than the show’s star, Bryan Cranston – at the premiere of the Breaking Bad special screening at Sony was a real treat. This was a celebration of the last eight episodes of season five, which are due to air on August 11th.
The Breaking Bad star wore an exact replica of his own face as he mingled with fans at the San Diego gathering
Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston found a novel way to mingle with fans and explore the stalls of the San Diego Comic Con International; by wearing a mask that is the exact replica of your own face. Cranston donned a bald, goateed latex mask as he navigated the San Diego convention, and no-one was any wiser that the guy who was dressed up as Walter White at Comic Con was actually Walter White himself.

Aaron Paul and Lauren Parsekian are serious contenders for best celebrity wedding, ever.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul has married his long-time girlfriend Lauren Parsekian at a ceremony at Cottage Pavilion at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu on Sunday (May 26, 2013), according to Us Weekly. The couple were photographed embracing under a pretty swish looking ivy-draped archway, over at People.com.
Parsekian, the co-CEO of Finding Kind Productions, wore a strapless corseted Armsale gown with pearls, while husband Aaron wore a Burberry tuxedo and custom bow tie. The wedding was a 1920s carnival inspired affair, with a Ferris wheel, swing ride and photo booth, while blues musician John Mayer played live. Renowned magician David Blaine performed tricks for guests under a traditional red-and-white striped tent. "Well that was the most magical night of my life," said Parsekian in an Instagram post from the evening. "A day will never go by without me reminding you how special you are. Thanks for last night my pretty little bird," Paul captioned a picture on the photo-sharing site.
The pair first met at the Coachella music festival, with Paul proposing during a Parisian vacation on New Year's Eve 2012. He stars as meth dealer Jesse Pinkman alongside Bryan Cranston in AMC's Breaking Bad. It returns on August 11, 2013 for the final season.
Congratulations to the two on their special day. Here's wishing you a long and enjoyable life together!
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul has tied the knot with long-time girlfriend Lauren Parsekian, with the two getting hitched in front for friends and family at the Los Angeles ceremony. According to People, the two married in Malibu this weekend in modest and intimate surroundings. No word on whether there was any blue meth getting handed out at the ceremony.
Paul and Parsekian first met at Coachella Music Festival in 2010, getting engaged on New Years Eve/Day in January 2012. Last year Paul gave a gushing interview to GQ about his then fiancé, explaining the whole proposal in detail. "It's this little courtyard outside of this hotel. We were just dancing to Édith Piaf by ourselves on New Year's and then I begged her to marry me," he said. "She's the greatest woman that has ever existed. No offense to other women on this planet, but she is hands down the best."
Aside from the actual wedding ceremony, the pair were spotted out in Las Vegas last week with friends, celebrating what seemed to be a pre-wedding shindig. Last weeks gathering even included a tribute to the fateful night in Paris, with the bride and groom-to be receiving their own engagement cake, with Paul's including the special message (his alleged words from the night), "My pretty bird, thank you for loving me."

The star is wed
If you know Jesse Pinkman as well as we do, then you’d think he wasn’t likely to settle down anytime soon. But alas! He has! You also need to know that this article is full of massive spoilers.
Alright, so Jesse Pinkman hasn’t tied the knot. He won’t be ready for a while, if ever, and is still getting over Jane Margolis, who died in season 2 of an overdose. No, it’s Aaron Paul, the genius behind Pinkman, that got married. "It's this little courtyard outside of this hotel. We were just dancing to Édith Piaf by ourselves on New Year's and then I begged her to marry me," he said. "She's the greatest woman that has ever existed," he adoringly told GQ last year. "No offense to other women on this planet, but she is hands down the best." Parsekian is co-founder of the Kind Campaign, a project that works to end girl-against-girl bullying. She and Molly Thompson founded the organization in 2009 while they were students at Pepperdine University. "Aaron rocked a bow tie, and Lauren donned a veil," an onlooker told PEOPLE. "The lovebirds were dancing and canoodling."
Aaron will be returning to screens in August as Breaking Bad reaches its much-anticipated conclusion with the second half of season 5. And we can’t wait to see what he’ll do next having established himself in AMC’s drama.

The AMC drama has finally been validated with a Simpsons tribute.
The Simpsons are doing Breaking Bad once again in this week’s episode. The Fox series is paying tribute or poking fun – take your pick – of the AMC drama, now in its final season. Of course, no drugs are actually featured in the opening credits video for The Simpsons. Instead, Marge dons a “Kiss the Cook” apron and goes into her lab... err... kitchen to cook up some blue cupcakes. She then sells them to the neighborhood kids, while Homer lurks suspiciously in the background, wearing Walter White’s trademark black hat. It’s all very suspicious and probably delicious. The entire sequence is set to Tommy James and The Shondells’ Crystal Blue Persuasion and, when the camera pans away, we see Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman in their lab suits watching the animated show on their own couch.
And this is how we know that Breaking Bad is legit. Emmy awards? Please. A show is only successful after The Simpsons have made fun of it. Now we can all finally relax and watch the fifth season in peace.
You know a show has reached iconic status when it gets parodied on The Simpsons.

Kate and Charlie Hannah's marriage came about through their shared love of partying and getting drunk. All is well in their relationship as long as they are drinking together. However, when Kate's excessive partying pushes her into the dangerous territory of hard drugs threatening her teaching career when she continuously lies to her boss, she decides that it's time to deal with her problem and quit the booze for good. While Charlie vows to help her, he finds going sober less easy and Kate beings to question whether their relationship is built on love or whether their vision of each other has been blurred by alcohol over the past years. Quitting drinking also forces Kate to confront her conduct at work and her difficult relationship with her mother.
'Smashed' is a comedy drama with more drama than comedy. While the antics of Kate and Charlie may be funny at first sight, it is clear as the story goes on that this a story about burying your darkest problems. It has been directed by James Ponsoldt ('Off the Black') who also co-wrote the movie with actress Susan Burke in her screenplay debut. 'Smashed' is scheduled for release this year on December 14th 2012.
