'Breaking Bad' spin-off starring Val Kilmer and Slash hits Kickstarter

With each season of Breaking Bad, the show’s fan base grew, right up until showrunner Vince Gilligan decided that Walter White’s story had come to end after five seasons. But not everyone agreed with Gilligan’s choice. And as far as industry newcomer Larry Shepherd is concerned—spoiler!—Walt’s presumed death is not the final chapter of the story. And that’s exactly why he has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his own Breaking Bad spin-off titled Anastasia.

On the Anastasia Kickstarter page, Shepherd describes his series as picking up directly after Walter White’s collapse in the Breaking Bad finale, when a mystery person appears and drags Walt out of the meth lab by his ankles. Anastasia will focus on two U.S. Marshals—played by obvious choices Val Kilmer and Slash—who try to answer three very important questions: Is Walter White alive? Where is he? And who dragged him away? READ FULL STORY

Slash plays national anthem at NHL playoff game; LeAnn Rimes gets patriotic at Indy 500 -- VIDEO

Celebrities are getting patriotic this Memorial Day weekend.

LeAnn Rimes appeared at the Indianapolis 500 on Saturday to kick off the storied race with her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” She nailed it (the jet flyover didn’t hurt). Check out the clip below:

Meanwhile, NHL national anthem singers are often of the bow tie-wearing, classically trained variety. For the Los Angeles’ Kings first home game in the 2014 Western Conference Final on Saturday night, traditional wasn’t going to cut it.

For their game 3 contest against reigning Stanley Cup champs the Chicago Blackhawks, the Kings enlisted none other than Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash to shred his way through “The Star-Spangled Banner.” (Usual anthem singer, American Idol alum Pia Toscano, was attending a wedding and unable to perform.) It wasn’t Jimi Hendrix levels of awesome, but it certainly amped up the Staples Center crowd, which cheered their team on to a 4-3 victory over the ‘Hawks. The Kings now lead the series 2-1. The full clip is below:


Saturday night’s win makes the Kings 2-0 when Slash performs the game-opener in L.A. Think they’ll ask him to return?
