Actor Dean Norris stars as Hank Schrader in the AMC series, "Breaking Bad." AMC

The AMC show, "Breaking Bad," set in New Mexico - is about a middle aged man named Walter White who undergoes a Clark Kent/Superman transformation -- but on the wrong side of the law. He starts out as a mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher - making so little money he moonlights at a carwash.

Walt finds out he has lung cancer and thinks his time is up. He's desperate to leave his family with some money so he gets into the methamphetemine business, using his chemistry expertise to cook up the purest, most powerful meth the Southwest has ever seen. Madeleine talks to actor Dean Norris, who plays Walt's brother-in-law, Hank Schrader on the show.

"Breaking Bad" is a huge critical hit and during the current fourth season, the character Hank Schrader has been transformed into a crucial player. Hank is a DEA agent. He's obsessed with finding out who's supplying this new powerful meth - not knowing that the man he's looking for is actually his brother-in-law, Walt.
