Bryan Cranston Recalls The 'Breaking Bad' Pizza Throwing Scene On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Bryan Cranston has been a part of many intense, memorable memorable scenes on "Breaking Bad," but he's especially fond of one in particular. Early in the second season, when Walt and his wife Skyler's relationship was very strained, he tried to reconcile with her and wound up throwing a pizza on the roof.

Cranston talked about filming that particular scene on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Mon., 12 a.m. ET on ABC). Understandably, the production team had blocked off several hours for the scene, as it was probably going to be difficult to get it just right. Cranston was throwing practically blind, and there was no way to predict how the pizza would land.

Somehow, though, and without him even knowing it at the time, Cranston nailed it on the first take. And there it sat, as an iconic reminder of that failing marriage for several episodes before it was finally taken down.

"Breaking Bad" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on AMC. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is on weeknights at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
