Vince Gilligan on Matt Weiner: Sizing the apples

From Sam Thielman, our man at NATPE:

“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan made a brief cameo during the the tribute video to Matt Weiner at the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards on Tuesday evening. “He was obsessing over the size of the apples (on ‘Mad Men’),” Gilligan said admiringly. “It was that level of attention to detail.

“So now,” Gilligan said, brandishing a small baggie of white powder, “I always weigh the meth on the show to the 100th of a gram. This is the fake s–t.” Then he held up a full gallon Ziploc to the camera. “This is the real stuff.”
