As everyone looks forward to (and simultaneously dreads) Sunday's Breaking Bad finale, cast members are cleverly revealing what they can about the conclusion of the hit series. And it isn't much.

"I love the way it ended. The ending was an inevitable outcome," RJ Mitte, who plays Walt Jr. (a.k.a., Flynn), on the AMC show, during an interview with Take Part Live. "The way the family winds up, it's a real-life ending. It's not make believe."

He goes on to add, "It could be a happy ending ... there's so much. You have no idea."

There's another familiar face returning to How I Met Your Mother!

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Ted Mosby's boss, Hammond Druthers, in an upcoming episode this season.

The actor, whose own AMC drama is set to conclude this weekend, previously appeared on the show in 2006 and 2007, where he served as Ted's superior at an architecture firm.

Jeff Daniels: 'Oh, That's What It Sounds Like When You Win!'

How surprised was Jeff Daniels to win his first Emmy?

"I heard my name, and I go, 'Oh, that's what it sounds like when you win,' " Daniels, who won for his lead role as the self-righteous anchor Will McAvoy on The Newsroom, told reporters at HBO's afterparty on the Plaza of the Pacific Design Center, Sunday. "You hear your name just like that. 'Well, I won!' "

Going into the ceremony, the favorite appeared to be Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who had won for the past three years. When Daniels's name was announced instead, reported The New York Times, "There were audible gasps of 'Whoa!' and 'What?' in the auditorium."

PEOPLE's TV Critic: What the Emmys Got Right and Wrong

Originally posted 09/23/2013 03:00PM

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."

If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.

Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.

Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

Think the dark world of crystal meth distribution is a seedy business? Apparently that's nothing compared to the sordid world of black market joke selling.

Just ask Jimmy Fallon.

The comic and his Late Night with Jimmy Fallon team debuted a Breaking Bad parody they dubbed "Joking Bad" on Wednesday night – and it's immediately gone viral.

The nearly 13-minute digital short features real life new father Fallon, 38, looking alarmingly like Bryan Cranston's Walter White, who is told he has no more than six months left on his late night show.
