'Breaking Bad' Star

Stolen Script Actually

HELPED Our Show

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 played 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.

Actually this is a teaser for the final season...Mike is NOT dead and survived the Walter shooting...Dude finds Walt's car parked in ABQ and rips the script to ransom it back for 5 million so he can finally leave his grand-daughter that nest egg that he has lost 2 x before. Not to be a spoiler but we also learn in this season that Walt corrupts Hank and he starts running interference on the DEA side so WW can fling that dope 24/7.

It's an OK show. Good actors. The female characters are written badly, like that other show The Walking Dead.

The Gus Fring storyline has been my favorite part of the show thus far. Was sad it ended. Loved how it was written A+

I love "Breaking Bad" and Giancarlo did an amazing job playing Gus. I think he is right. People will watch even if the script is leaked. All the actors do such a good job, people will still want to see it even if they know what happens. But it will take away from the excitement of it. So hopefully the person who has it isn't going to be a jerk about it and leak it.

BTW, what was up with "Community" getting him again this season and once again not taking advantage? For a show that does so many parodies you would think they would have taken advantage of having Gus Fring. Oh well.

Breaking Bad is the best show I've ever seen except maybe for The Wire.
