It won't be long now until the final few episodes of Breaking Bad hit our TV screens, but if one Albuquerque news station is to be believed, someone's running around with all the answers to fans' questions about the future of their beloved characters. Yup, they claim that someone stole Bryan Cranston's copy of the script. Yikes!
Action 7 reporter Lauren Zakalik was outside the courtroom where a 29-year-old man by the name of Xavier McAfee faced charges of stealing the precious document from Cranston's car. Court documents revealed that on of Cranston's people, Taryn Feingold, was contacted by a confidential informant who told her a man has been bragging about breaking into a car, coming across the script for the show, and taking it.
Charles Baker aka Skinny Pete even spoke to TMZ about the theft, and asked the thief to refrain from leaking details about the final episodes. "You've already made a choice to steal from a person... who is loved by millions of people," Baker said. "Don't make it worse by betraying the rest of the cast and crew and fellow fans of the show."
It all seemed straightforward enough until the news station contacted Sony officials for comment. They said they had absolutely no clue what the station was on about, no knowledge of a scrip being stolen, and no worries about any confidential information being released. How odd, because the police are 100 per cent sure it happened...
"It was reported to us back in December that (the script) was one of the items inside the bag that was stolen," said Deputy Aaron Williamson of the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office. Sure you wouldn't even get the likes of this on Breaking Bad, eh?
