To celebrate ten years since the making of Pineapple Express, one of the stars, Seth Rogan, took to Twitter to send out some little known facts and bits of trivia about the movie, but it was producer Judd Apatow who chimed in and blew everyone away.


It seems Apatow didn't think actor Bryan Cranston of legendary Breaking Bad fame seemed scary enough to play a drug kingpin. Apatow wrote:

I've got one. Bryan Cranston auditioned. He may have even read at a table read and I said, 'I don't think he seems scary enough to seem like a real drug dealer.' If he did PE, maybe the Breaking Bad people would have said, 'not him, he always plays drug dealers.

That's certainly one way to look at it, and to be fair, Cranston was chosen to play Walter White for his credibility as a mild-mannered science teacher before turning bad-to the-bone meth dealer. So there is that.



Some folks couldn't believe Apatow couldn't see it.







But others understood the trepidation in casting Cranston.








People are happy Cranston did get his chance to play an epic drug dealer.






Regardless of your career, this is a great reminder that we never know what may be.
