Anthony Hopkins binges ‘Breaking Bad,’ writes Bryan Cranston glowing letter

Aaron Paul, Vince Gilligan and Bryan Cranston ...

There is a tendency to make excellence in innovation i.e. engaging employees and customers as mystical agents achieved only by the lucky few. This letter by Actor Anthony Hopkins to “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston is exemplary of leadership. Building a culture of discipline that reaches such heights that it enthralls employees and customers to elevate. This is competitive advantage in a world of shrinking advantages.

“Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins is no slouch in the acting department, but after binge-watching all six seasons of “Breaking Bad” recently, he couldn’t resist writing a letter to star Bryan Cranston to tell him it was the best acting he had seen — ever.

The letter showed up Sunday on the Facebook page of actor Steven Michael Quezada, who played DEA agent Steve Gomez on the AMC hit. It was quickly picked up across the web, but on Monday the post, along with a tweet about it from Quezada, disappeared.

Arnold Robinson, a publicist for Hopkins, confirmed to TODAY on Monday that the letter was indeed real. And a source at United Talent Agency, which represents both Hopkins and Cranston, told TODAY that Hopkins wanted to write Cranston because he admired his work so much. Hopkins was complimentary of the entire cast, and the UTA source said Cranston shared it, not expecting the letter to go viral.

Hopkins writes that he was compelled to reach out after what he refers to as two weeks of “addictive” viewing.

I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!

Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen — ever.”
