Univision Would Like You to Meet Walter Blanco

Univision Would Like You to Meet Walter Blanco

This past weekend, we told you about Univision's plans to reboot Breaking Bad in the form of a Spanish-language series called Metastasis. Though at that time, Sony (who owns Breaking Bad) had no plans to sell the rights over to Univision, it looks like as of yesterday they had a change of heart - according to Vulture, the company officially announced that Metastasis will air on Univision's UniMas channel in the U.S., as well as throughout Latin America.

As for the new cast, there have been a few changes, but for the most part it seems their roles will be intact. Walter White's counterpart you can see above - he will be portrayed by Colombian actor Diego Trujillo, the character has been renamed to Walter Blanco, because of course. 

Roberto Urbina will portray the new Jesse Pinkman, who is now named Jose Miguel Rosas. "Rosa" means "pink" in Spanish, and Jose sounds like Jesse, so the name change does make sense:

Sandra Reyes will portray the new Skylar, who has been renamed Cielo - which means "sky," in case you were wondering:

And Julián Arango will portray Walter's narcotics agent brother-in-law Hank Schrader, who is now called Henry Navarro:

Olé!
