Vince Gillian On Pizza Prank
In Breaking Bad‘s third season, Walter White (Bryan Cranston), in a fit of frustration, tosses a pizza in the air and it somehow lands on the roof of his home. Recreating the memorable scene, fans of the erstwhile series have been lobbing pizzas on the roof of the same house – which is not a set house, but someone’s home.
“They’re throwing pizzas on roofs and stuff like that. Let me tell you: There is nothing funny or original or cool about throwing pizzas on this lady’s roof,” Gilligan said on the podcast. “It is just not funny. It’s been done before. You’re not the first.”
Gilligan, who called the occupants, “the two nicest people in the world,” says they don’t deserve the harassment. “People live in these houses, and they are trying to go about their lives day in and day out like we all are.”
Also on hand during the podcast was actor Jonathan Banks, who reprises his muscle role of Mike Ehrmantraut in Better Call Saul. Banks threatened the pranksters in character. “If I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down,” Banks said in his signature growl. “It’s not cool.”
Better Call Saul airs Mondays on AMC at 10/9c.
