But I do kinda hope they asked Bee first and she said no.

Bee is off working on a sitcom with her husband and raising three kids, so they probably didn't even bother asking her.

Yeah, I got to thinking about that later -- the only two people who have been there longer than Oliver are the couple with three kids.  Didn't know they were working on a sitcom besides; the three kids seem like plenty of reason.

And Mark Evanier pointed something out that I hadn't really thought about -- Oliver is the best straight-man on the team.  It's a cast full of Costellos and they needed an Abbott.  Oliver's the one with the easiest time pivoting from his correspondent character to host; Bee would have had to drop character or we would have ended up with essentially a full hour of The Colbert Report.

It's ok, Seth Mcfarlane never needs new content.

Niku, come up to Dallas and watch it with me. I'm going to get so drunk.

The IT Crowd?  It's a good show, but it did go off the air three years ago.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Oh, I actually thought that was from a different show (a new BBC cop show parody), based on the context of posts where I first saw it.

Haha derp.

Dear Mister Cranston.

I wanted to write you this email – so I am contacting you through Jeremy Barber – I take it we are both represented by UTA . Great agency.

I’ve just finished a marathon of watching “BREAKING BAD” – from episode one of the First Season – to the last eight episodes of the Sixth Season. (I downloaded the last season on AMAZON) A total of two weeks (addictive) viewing.

I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!

Your performance as Walter White was 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.

But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (that over used word) awesome.

From what started as a black comedy, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction and hell. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.

If you ever get a chance to – would you pass on my admiration to everyone – Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance … The list is endless.

Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.

You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.

That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It’s almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.

Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.

Best regards

Tony Hopkins.

Did Anthony Hopkins just admit to binge watching a TV show?

Either that or someone on the internet really wanted people to believe that Anthony Hopkins binge watched a TV show.  Almost as delightful.

I think he confirmed that the letter was legit; the story's been running in a lot of papers. This was the first time I'd seen the text of the letter though.

So... Breaking Bad

Walter White is my dad. Seriously.

Right down to the way he bares his teeth when he says "Fuck You".

ADDENDUM: My dad was Walter White with Jack Nicholson eyebrows.
