This week’s interview from AMC is with the amazing R J Mitte, who plays Walter White Jr, AKA Flynn. In the interview he discusses sharing secrets from the set, showing the world what cerebral palsy really looks like, and his characters love of breakfast.
Q: There are so many Breaking Bad tributes on the web. Do you have any favorites about Walter, Jr. ?
