rs_560x415-130808160741-1024.BryanAaron.ms.080813_copyYeah, bitch!

Aaron Paul is not ready to leave Jesse Pinkman and for this we are thankful. A source close to Better Call Saul, AMC’s highly anticipated Breaking Bad spinoff, recently spilled the beans that everyone’s favorite sidekick meth cook is in talks for a recurring role when the show debuts in November.

Casting will officially begin at the end of the month, and production begins in May, but the source says the show’s creative team is already talking to Paul about reprising his role—for more than one episode.

The producers also mentioned they very much want Bryan Cranston to appear for a cameo or two, and he has said he is game.

Go on and get your “Yeah, bitch!” out of your system, we’ll wait.

Sandra Bullock Raps to Sugarhill Gang’s Classic “Rapper’s Delight”

During a visit to The Jonathan Ross Show on Oct. 12, Sandra Bullock showed off her rapping skills with a performance of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight"

During a visit to The Jonathan Ross Show on Oct. 12, Sandra Bullock showed off her rapping skills with a performance of Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”

Is there anything Sandra Bullock can’t do? The single mother and Oscar winner (already a frontrunner for a second Academy Award for Gravity) added another line to her impressive resume — rapper — when she visited Britain’s The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday, Oct. 12.

The 49-year-old actress — who looked stunning in black shorts, a black-and-white jacket, and black heels — was on the show to promote her acclaimed new movie, Gravity, also starring George Clooney. But the highlight of her appearance was an impromptu performance of the 1979 hip hop classic “Rapper’s Delight,” by the Sugarhill Gang.

“The sad part is, I learned the words because I liked this guy in high school,” Arlington, Va., native Bullock recalled of the song. “And I was like, ‘Next time I go to that dance, I’m gonna know every word. And I’m going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I’m gonna catch his eye, and I’m gonna say the words. And he’s gonna like me.”

So, did he? “Sadly, it worked,” she quipped, laughing.

Host Jonathan Ross then asked if she’d do a little demonstration. Bullock agreed — on one condition. “I need some beats,” she joked. “Gimme some beats, yo.”

Watch Sandra Bullock spit rhymes to “Rapper’s Delight” in the video below!

Miley Cyrus on ‘SNL’: Twerktastic, or not?

If you expected twerking from Miley Cyrus during her Saturday Night Live gig, you were sorely disappointed.

“Now that white people are doing it, it seems kind of lame,” Cyrus said during a monologue that addressed her performance on the MTV Video Music Awards and the fate of Hannah Montana (“She was murdered”).

Other than an opening skit about her VMAs performance causing the end of America, Cyrus, who was both the show’s host and musical guest, mostly steered clear of controversy, like last week’s online exchange with Sinead O’Connor. She did, however, play a slutty Michele Bachmann in a We Can’t Stop parody video about the government shutdown. Other sketches featured her as Hillary Clinton in an MTV miniseries, a hip-hop-obsessed high-school student, a sullen morning-show anchor and Scarlett Johansson doing a screen test for Fifty Shades of Grey.

Cyrus kept the commentary and controversy out of her two musical performances. She dressed much more conservatively for her powerhouse performance ofWrecking Ball than she did in her music video, wearing a sheer sports jersey that revealed a black two-piece when backlit. She switched into a white outfit — though still with see-through elements — for a poignant version of We Can’t Stop, accompanied by three acoustic guitars.

“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul is rolling a barrel’s full of money towarda good cause.

The 32-year-old actor, who plays meth-cooking Jesse Pinkman on the AMC drama that wraps Sunday, successfully launched an online contest that raised $1.8 million for the anti-bullying charity The Kind Campaign co-founded by his wife.

Donators bought more than just good vibes for their money: Paul offered a chance for two lucky winners plus their guests to win a free trip to Los Angeles, where Paul himself will pick them up Sunday. From there, they’ll be driven to the Hollywood Forever Cemetary as the guests of honor for a finale viewing party with the cast, complete with a fake “cooking” session with Paul and other castmembers.

“We raised nearly 1.8 million for @kindcampaign,” Paul tweeted early Thursday morning after the contest on fundraising platform Omaze.com officially closed. “That is because of all of you. Words can’t express how unbelievably grateful I am. #iLoveU.”

Other prizes being raffled off included hazmat suits autogrpahed by Paul and co-star Bryan Cranston. Co-founded by Lauren Parsekian, who married Paul in May, and Molly Thompson, the Kind Campaign is a documentary and non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about girl-against-girl bullying.
