Scoop on Breaking Bad, White Collar and True Blood
What's hotter than the strippers in the upcoming movie Magic Mike? The scoop that the film's actors — who also star in some of summer's best TV shows — spilled at their premiere.
When Breaking Bad returns July 15, expect Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and DEA brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris) to take their game of cat and mouse to new levels. "I'll say this, Hank is a really good cop, but Walt is a really good criminal, so to see this chase where Hank's not even aware that it's Walt — you have to see where it goes. It's pretty amazing," says Betsy Brandt, who plays Hank's kleptomaniac wife. "After the finale for Season 4 I just thought, 'How will they top that?'" she adds. "But when I read the first script I said, 'You have got to be kidding me!' It's just so great. Now we're really seeing what these characters are made of."
Another criminal/cop duo, White Collar's Neal Caffrey and Peter Burke, will be facing some changes. When the USA drama returns July 10, Neal (Matt Bomer) will be on the lam in a tropical location and FBI agent Burke (Tim DeKay), who has been removed from Neal's case, will be taking a stroll on the darker side of the law. "There are moments in this season where he swings further to Neal's side than he's ever swung before," Bomer says. "And we're going to get a glimpse into Neal's past, who he is, who his parents are and where he comes from. He wants to fill in those blanks and solidify his history so he can move on."
Also exploring his origins is Joe Manganiello, True Blood's resident werewolf. "I just worked with my 'daddy' till six am on Saturday morning and we're having a blast," Manganiello says about Robert Patrick, who plays Alcide's father. "It's creepy, it's dark and it gives so much back story into why Alcide hates being a werewolf. It is so great!"
