Dean Norris Has A Very Good Reason For Keeping Quiet About The Final Season Of 'Breaking Bad' (VIDEO)

Dean Norris dropped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live," but he didn't offer up any juicy details about the new season of "Breaking Bad." As he explained it, though, he had a pretty good reason for keeping his mouth shut.

“One or both of my balls would be literally cut off," Norris explained. "That’s actually what they would do.”

“Is that in the contract?” Jimmy Kimmel asked him.

“Yes," Norris replied. The final season is so secret that Norris said the crew was even given redacted scripts. His "Breaking Bad' co-star, Bryan Cranston, had a script stolen, so there's certainly reason to be concerned.

Norris already has another gig lined up, and the source material is already out there. He's starring in the CBS adaptation of Stephen King's "Under the Dome" this summer. The summer series premieres on June 24.

It's going to be a busy summer for Dean Norris, with "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan promising a finale so powerful that he cried while writing it.

"Under the Dome" premieres Monday, June 24 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. The final season of "Breaking Bad" kicks off on August 11 on AMC. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
