Walter White lookalike contest attracts the good, the bad, and the bad

Walter White group

Bryan Cranston has created one of the most compelling on screen characters in the form of Walter White in Breaking Bad, so much so that an army of fans travelled to Albuquerque to take part in a lookalike contest. Wired has detailed the turnout that included men from all walks of life cosplaying as the character from different points in the show. Not all of them made for a convincing parent turned drug kingpin, but in the end the real Walter White was on hand to judge a 54-year-old salesman as the best impersonator.
