There are just six days until AMC's Breaking Bad returns. From now until August 11 at 9 p.m., it's Breaking Bad Week at Complex Pop Culture, and we'll have a different BB-related feature each day.

We kick things off with a look at the incredible cast of Vince Gilligan's black-hearted drama. His show, about the long fall of a man living a regular-type life in Albuquerque, New Mexico, wouldn't work if not for the performances of the main cast, which includes Bryan Cranston as Walter White, Anna Gunn as Skylar White, Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, RJ Mitte as Walter Jr., and Dean Norris as Hank Schrader. Most of these actors have taken long, winding paths to their roles on the Emmy award-winning series. These facts illuminate the way.

Check out 30 Things You Didn't Know About the Cast of Breaking Bad and look out for the rest of our coverage coming later this week.
