There were rumors going around earlier this week that Jane Kaczmarek, the mother from Malcolm in the MIddle, would be appearing in a couple of episodes of the final season of Breaking Bad, which stars Bryan Cranston, the father from Malcolm in the Middle. But apparently this is not true, although according to a source at the show she will be appearing in the DVD extras, as confirmed by this photo Tweeted by Dean Norris (who plays “Policeman #1″ on the show) (and whose Tweet said “Hankum in the MIddle” lolololol). Somehow the fact that she’s appearing on the DVD extras is weirder than if she was just on the show? Her having some small part on the show would be a fun little easter egg for the superfans, but what is the DVD extra going to be? Some MadTV sketch where they reprise their roles as Malcolm’s parents but also meth? Blech. I make the highest grade blue blech in the world when I hear that. Oh well! It’s up to them, not us! It’s someone else’s world we just live in it. Maybe you can have some fun making a caption for this photo, though. Push yourself!

  1. more like Malcolm in the methamphetamine am I rite?

  2. Jane’s Addiction is Crystal Meth

  3. Let’s skip the formalities of the upvoting process. Dean Norris should just get this automatically for “Hankum in the Middle”.

  4. “You’re not the boss of me now, and you’re not so big” —what Walter White has basically been trying to say for the entire run of the series.

  5. I am The One Whose Socks…get lost easily…in a house with this many guys

  6. Jane Kaczmarek just dropped by to see a show where Bryan’s character has to do the cooking.

  7. Wow, Frankie Muniz looks like shit.

  8. I hide in plain sight, same as you

  9. Hank couldn’t help but notice that Walt was a much better person back when he had hair.

  10. Even weirder than Jane Kaczmarek in the DVD extras is the fact that Frankie Muniz took that photo.

  11. Hal episodes were always my favorite episodes. Like when he got into power walking or won the lottery and used that money to get a steamroller and destroy stuff. Remember when he got into that fight with the kid with a better boat at the lake? Or his insane, rich family? Oh my gosh, you guys, remember when he got cancer and had to make meth??? Hal is the best.

  12. Biggest middle finger to TV snobs of all time: Final scene of the final episode… Brian Cranston wakes up in bed next to Jane Kaczmarek. Clean-shaven, full head of hair. Turns out the events portrayed in Breaking Bad occurred entirely in Hal’s dreams.

  13. This must mean that the twist at the end of Breaking Bad is that it has actually been a sequel to Malcolm in the Middle the whole time

  14. Jenkem in the Middle.

  15. “I am the (only) one who has hair!”

  16. Malcolm’s looking more like Howie Mandel every day.

  17. Spoiler alert: Hank gets another black eye at some point.

  18. My guess is that Breaking Bad is going to end the show by pulling a Newhart:

    For the last episode, instead of resolving the nail-biting plot line, Walt wakes up in bed next to Jane Kaczmarek and says, “I had the strangest dream…” and then it launches into a Malcolm In The Middle episode.

    • For the love of god: Tom Dunphy said this exact same thing 1/3 of the way up this thread, now I look like a frikkin’ clown… DELETE MY POST! DELETE MY POST! DELETE MY POST!

  19. FYI this was the day I was an extra.

    Just, you know. Thought I should brag about that.
