DEA Chemists Taught Bryan Cranston to Make Meth for 'Breaking Bad' (VIDEO)

Bryan Cranston, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'When it came to his role on 'Breaking Bad,' Bryan Cranston did not sample the product involved in the show to help him understand his character, though that may be more of a question for Aaron Paul.

Mr. White would never sample his wares. But he did tell 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) that he did learn how to make crystal meth.

We suppose authenticity is important, though we're not so sure meth heads are in love with 'Breaking Bad,' or even if that is a desirable demographic, so does it really matter if the meth cooking is 100 percent accurate on the show?

It is, though. In fact, Cranston said DEA chemists were consultants on the show and they took them through the process step-by-step.

"So if the acting thing falls through ... " Craig Ferguson alluded.

"We have an opportunity," Cranston said, finishing the thought. It's always good to have another skill to fall back on in these tough economic times.
