‘Breaking Bad’ Star — Stolen Script Actually HELPED Our Show

Exclusive 040213_esposito_launch
The “Breaking Bad” script that was stolen from Bryan Cranston“s car actually gave the show a HUGE edge in its final season … so says one of its biggest stars.

Actor Giancarlo Esposito — who plays villain Gus Fring — has an interesting theory about things that appear disastrous at first glance … but actually turn out to be huge positives … and the stolen script is a prime example.

Charles Baker — aka Skinny Pete — had a different theory.

As we reported, the script — for an episode from the final season — was stolen out of Cranston”s Audi earlier this month in Albuquerque. He even called 911. A man named Xavier McAfee has been arrested in connection with the case, but the script hasn”t been recovered.
