Have you ever wondered who Walter White, the drug-dealing chemist from Breaking Bad, is based on? Last night on The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert interviewed Vince Gilligan, creator of the hit AMC drama, and uncovered some striking similarities between Gilligan and his notorious television character. For example, Gilligan and White both have thick goatees (if you didn’t know, having facial hair is a HUGE tip-off to whether or not you’re into selling tonnes of meth. HUGE.). If Gilligan really is Walter White in real life, Stephen Colbert will probably NOT be around to see the light of day for much longer. You do not, I repeat, DO NOT call out a drug lord on national television and get away with it. Thanks for all the laughs, Stephen!
Caution: While watching the video below, do not be fooled by Gilligan’s undeniable charm. It’s just a facade covering up his countless indiscretions that mirror those of Walter White.
