Jesse: “Yo bitch, Sir Anthony Hopkins digs us!  I mean you, I mean, all of us, yo!”
Walter:  “What the hell are you talking about, you idiot?”

I’m talking about my new #1 reason why people must watch “Breaking Bad”.  And for those who have, why they now must consider it the best thing on TV, ever.  Here’s why:
In the mid-80’s, I saw Anthony Hopkins in a brilliant David Hare play in London called “Pravda” and I remember walking out, thinking, “That’s the best acting I’ve ever seen!”  Almost ten years later, I saw the movie “The Remains of the Day,” and I thought, “That’s the best movie acting I’ve ever seen.”  Way to go, Sir Tony!
Well just recently, Sir Anthony Hopkins penned a fan letter to Walter White himself, Bryan Cranston, and here are some excepts:

Dear Mister Cranston.
I’ve just finished a marathon of watching “BREAKING BAD” – from episode one of the First Season – to the last eight episodes….. I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen – ever.
You and all the cast are the best actors I’ve ever seen.
Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.
Best regards,
Tony Hopkins.

I didn’t make that up!  So by my reasoning, the man whose performances I thought were the best acting ever, thinks that Bryan Cranston’s performance in “Breaking Bad” was the best acting ever.  So, Bryan Cranston as Walter White = Best Acting Ever. (Yo.)
