When the "Breaking Bad" finale ended, the "Breaking Bad" party went into high gear. The sold-out screening of the finale of "Breaking Bad" at Hollywood Forever Cemetery served as the opening act for Aaron Paul's loud and jubilant VIP after-party to celebrate the end of the series that established him as one of Hollywood's hottest stars. The party was the conclusion of an event staged by Paul, who played troubled junkie Jesse Pinkman on the series, and his wife Lauren to benefit the Kind Campaign, a movement and school program bringing awareness and healing to the problem of girl-against-girl crime and bullying.

Loyal viewers of "Breaking Bad"know that we bid adios to drug kingpin Gus Fring in "Face Off,"the final episode of the series' slow burn of a fourth season (and anyone not yet up to that episode should quit reading now). Series creator Vince Gilligan and his writing team had effectively, and with great reluctance, signed El Pollo Hermano's death warrant a year earlier in the Season 3 finale. Series protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston) had defied Gus, and with egos this big clashing, Gilligan says, "it's like the tagline from 'Highlander': There can be only one. " The chess game between the two strong-willed, controlling men played out over the course of the season's 13 episodes with the meticulous Gus (Giancarlo Esposito)

Giancarlo Esposito, nominated for an Emmy Award for supporting actor in "Breaking Bad," had a novel way of keeping cool Sunday on the red carpet, which was a sweltering 88 degrees. He was carrying a fan made by his girlfriend and daughter, depicting his character, Gus, with half his face blown off, just like on the show. "The secret is the fan," Esposito said. "I can always talk to it when I don't have anyone else to talk to. I can use it as a seat filler. " It wasn't likely that Esposito wouldn't have anyone to talk to Sunday afternoon, with "Breaking Bad" up for a number of big awards and its viewers more excited about it than ever.

That actors of color are so infrequently cast as anything but hustlers and wastrels adds an extra dimension of intrigue to "The Keeper," a fable-like character drama that's the first feature by psychiatrist-cum-filmmaker Joe Brewster and that doesn't need any extra dimensions to be taut and intelligent, thanks very much.
