Breaking Bad successfully turned Mr. Chips into Scarface, but did you know that AMC wanted Matthew Broderick or John Cusack for the role of Walter White?

Released in 1996 and directed by Ben Stiller, 'The Cable Guy' was a dark comedy that showed audiences a different side of Jim Carrey. The actor played Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable guy raised on TV, who desperately tries to befriend Steven (Matthew Broderick), but when Steven doesn't readily accept Chip's zealous and intrusive overtures, he finds that there are sinister consequences. Produced by Judd Apatow (who didn't receive credit for the work he did on the script at the time), the film was a moderate success and went on to become a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.

If you're wondering why a monotone man in a classroom keeps spouting the name "Bueller" in succession despite the man's clear absence, we've finally got an answer: he's busy on the set of 'Modern Family' season 4! That's right, Ferris Bueller himself, Matthew Broderick will ditch his other responsibilities to pop by the series for an upcoming episode, but as whom? Will his star turn, numbering among the many 'Modern Family' has brought to light be the best yet?
With the fifth (and sadly final) season of 'Breaking Bad' unfolding before our very eyes and following the show's first successful visit to Comic-Con 2012, we're all basking in the glory of having Walter White grace our television screens once more. However, did you know that Bryan Cranston's iconic portrayal wasn't AMC's first choice for the role?
