Forget about Breaking Bad, looks like actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are all about breaking open a bottle of tequila - or at least selling fans one. The former TV show co-stars announced an off-screen collab on July 9: their new mezcal brand, Dos Hombres.
The announcement came just a few weeks after the pair started dropping seriously cryptic hints of a reunion on their respective Instagram accounts, leaving many fans to wishing, hoping and praying that a Breaking Bad movie announcement was on the horizon. Breaking Bad: Spring Breakers, perhaps? Seriously, we were so excited for a sequel where Walt was resurrected from the dead a lá telenovela, and the duo travelled to Mexico in the ultimate Los Pollos Hermanos face-off with Gustavo Fring. Write it!
And while fans were *pretty* disappointed that they won’t be seeing Walter and Jesse back on screen anytime soon, the actors’ foray into the world of amber liquors shouldn’t be that surprising. Cranston and Paul are only the latest male celebs to put down their Emmys and try and go full GOOP in the world of tequilas (CC: George Clooney and Justin Timberlake). And while celebrity alcohol brands have been around for ages (former heartthrobs Hanson went full MmmHop with a pale ale brand, guys), Cranston and Paul’s announcement makes it *official*: tequila companies are the dudes’ equivalent to lifestyle brands.
