The characters on Breaking Bad usually give Albuquerque, N.M., nothing but trouble.
That's changing now that producers are donating clothing from the AMC show to an emergency shelter there – giving Breaking Bad's meth-selling crooks a chance to be good guys for a change.
"We got a call from someone from Breaking Bad saying, 'Hey, we're dropping off some clothes.' Then, here they were," Jeremy Reynalds, CEO of the Joy Junction shelter, tells the AP.

She's got a powerful voice – and one powerful kick, apparently.
On Monday night's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Aussie comedy star Rebel Wilson proved she could belt out a tune and be her own rhythm section all at the same time.
The Pitch Perfect actress joked with Leno in the interview about how she got the role of Fat Amy in the comedy about an all-girls a cappella group.
"It's a comedy, but you also have to sing in it," Wilson said. "And they're like, 'Well, she kind of looks like Adele – but can she sing?' "

A slam dunk for Twilight!
Robert Pattinson stepped out Sunday night to attend Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel's after party at Soho House in Los Angeles.
Joined by a male friend, Pattinson was dressed casually in a baseball cap and jacket, but every girl in the room was "trying to get his attention," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Inside the star studded event, guests sipped on Don Julio margaritas and Bulleit Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails and snacked on sliders from Umami Burger.
Samantha Ronson deejayed a set full of current hits and classic rock while nominees, winners and guests including Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery, L.A. Laker Kobe Bryant and more enjoyed the evening.
"At one point Rob approached Kobe to say hi and tell him he was a big fan," the source adds. "Kobe said the same right back to him!"

It's straight out of an episode of Breaking Bad – right down to the name.
A man accused of violating his probation in a methamphetamine manufacturing case in Tuscaloosa, Ala., is drawing attention for more than his crime.
Since 2010, Walter Eddy White has been on probation after being arrested in 2008 on charges of trafficking methamphetamine, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of precursor materials, Al.com reports.
But White shares a name with a more popular methamphetamine cook – Breaking Bad's main character, Walter White.

There are reboots and there are remakes. The difference is subtle – and probably entirely semantic – but key. Reboots give beloved franchises new energy. (Think: Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.) Remakes are ill-conceived, often cynical attempts to cash in on a film that worked before.
Total Recall is a remake.
Instead of a fun, wild trip to Mars, like in the 1990 original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, this Recall – starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel – is set right here on Earth – though a dystopian version that's left much of the planet uninhabitable after world wars. What remains are the upper class United Federation of Britain and the depressing, rainy, blue-collar Colony (a.k.a. Australia).

The men are still mad, breaking is still bad – and announcer Jimmy Kimmel isn't ashamed to let you see him in his pajamas. So it went as the 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations were revealed early Thursday morning.
When the dust settled, not only was Kimmel himself nominated for hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live, but Mad Men and American Horror Story led the pack – with 17 nominations each.
The race is also on between top dramatic series lead actor contenders Jon Hamm, for Mad Men, and Bryan Cranston, for Breaking Bad – while both of their shows are also in the running for best dramatic series, along with Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Homeland.
The other actor nominees are Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey); Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire); Michael C. Hall (Dexter); and Damian Lewis (Homeland).

They may both star on AMC's two most admired series – Mad Men and Breaking Bad – but when it comes to who'll win the Emmy for Best Actor in a Dramatic Series, Mad Men star Jon Hamm isn't planning to play it as cool as would his existential TV persona, Don Draper.
In fact, handsome Hamm told PEOPLE at Mad Men's season 4 premiere in Hollywood Tuesday night, he and Fox's House star Hugh Laurie have a plan of attack should Breaking Bad leading man Bryan Cranston again cop the Best Actor Emmy.
"Hugh and I have a feeling that we're going to get together after this year's Emmys and just beat the s--- out of Bryan Cranston," says Hamm, 39. "That's what is going to happen, and we'll just distract him somehow, because he's very fit."
