Goodbye Walter White and Jesse. Hola Walter Blanco and Jose.
While we're still mourning the series finale of AMC's "Breaking Bad" from this past Sunday, there's a little comfort in knowing a spinoff of the Emmy-winning drama is on its way to Spanish-language television. Telenovela style.
"Metastasis" is Latin America's story of a struggling high school teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and turns into a major meth kingpin. Sound familiar?
Here's a trailer (in English) for the show:
The show will even have roles whose names parallel the English version: Walt is Walter Blanco, Jesse is Jose, Skyler is Cielo and Hank is now Henry Navarro.
The show is just slightly twisted from the American version. "Metastasis" reportedly takes place in Colombia, and Walter and Jose will be using a school bus as a cooking lab instead of a recreational vehicle. Apparently they don't drive RVs in Colombia. See? Totally different!

Justin Bieber performs live at the Padang Stage on Day 3 at the closing party of the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix on Sept. 23, 2013 in Singapore.
“It’s really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown.”
So begins comedian Zach Galifianakis’s interview with Canadian heartthrob and current SoCal resident Justin Bieber. On Galifianakis’s Funny or Die series “Between Two Ferns,” he used his trademark awkward confrontational interview style to needle Beebs about his public persona.
The items on Galifianakis’s Bieber rant list include his run-ins with the law for driving too fast, which he was pulled over for here in Southern California. He also asks about the Bieber video where he peed into a bucket and Bieber’s controversial comments saying that Anne Frank would have been a Belieber, which Bieber offers a somewhat genuine seeming response to despite Galifianakis’s berating. Zach also mentions Bieber’s admitted pot use, as well as asking him about his relationships.

Sir Patrick Stewart, he of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “X-Men” fame, announced on Twitter Sunday that he had decided to "make it so," marrying fiancee Sunny Ozell.

A spokesman for Captain Jean-Luc Picard said that Professor X had married fiancee Sunny Ozell on Saturday in Lake Tahoe, the Associated Press reports.
The officiant was Magneto/Gandalf himself, Sir Ian McKellen, who also retweeted Stewart’s ball pit of love photo.
You might remember Stewart’s new wife from a small part in a recent viral video involving her man. Ozell posted to YouTube a clip (shot in classic vertical phone video format) late last month where, with her feet against Stewart’s knees, Stewart explained an important acting technique: the quadruple take.
