Before they were out in the desert breaking bad, a lot of the “Breaking Bad” crew shared another, less serious show to share on their resume.
Each got a single they appeared on, different from the others, in 1999.
Little did they know they'd eventually meet up to create one of the most memorable series of all time!
Bryan Cranston appeared in the episode “Paranoid Dick” where Dick convinces Mary about a conspiracy against the university. Cranston plays as Neil.
Aaron Paul appears in the episode “Dick's Big Giant Headache: Part 2” where The Big Giant Head continues to be inappropriate.
Paul plays an unnamed student. Finally, Bob Odenkirk appears in the episode “The Fifth Solomon” where Dick wrecks a car the Solomon family feels sentimental about. Odenkirk plays as Gary.
“3rd Rock from the Sun” ran from 1996 to 2001 spanning 6 seasons. It is mere coincidence that all three “Breaking Bad” stars played roles in the 1999 season. I wonder what kind of weird stories they swapped in between the violence, drug creating and tense moments on set.
