Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul cemented their careers with starring roles in Breaking Bad. Now they are immortalized in bronze in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That’s where the TV drama mostly took place.

Albuquerque officials unveiled bronze statues of Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul) at the city’s Convention Center. A posse of Breaking Bad cast members and politicians attended the Friday evening ceremony, Entertainment Weekly reports.

EW said Sony Pictures Television, producer of the AMC drama, donated the statues. Sculptor Trevor Grove — who lists Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul as his two favorite TV on his website — created the 500-pound figures.

‘Breaking Bad’ Actors: Friends Forever

Cranston, Paul, Dean Norris, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan reportedly attended the ceremony, as did Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller. Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, and Patrick Fabian — stars of the Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul — also attended.

It’s well-known that the casts of the Breaking Bad franchise are very tight with each other. Better Call Saul stars Bob Odenkirk, Seehorn, and Fabian actually lived together in Albuquerque while the show filmed.

Incidentally, fans expect Cranston and Paul to appear in one or more of the final episodes of Better Call Saul. Neither actor appeared in the spinoff, which is in its sixth season and only has three episodes left.

The Better Call Saul team is still staying mum on Cranston’s and Paul’s expected participation in the spinoff. The characters’ involvement in Better Call Saul is very unclear, as the plot now revolves around flashbacks instead of flash-forwards. After all, Cranston’s character, Walter White died, at the conclusion of Breaking Bad.

The Internet buzz that Cranston and/or Paul will appear on Monday’s episode skyrocketed upon the reveal of its title: Breaking Bad. The series will end August 15.
