2:10 Feature Interview - R J Mitte

Breaking Bad turned into something very good for actor RJ Mitte. He is best known for playing Walter "Flynn" White Junior, the son of the chemistry teacher turned drug dealer on the series some critics call one of the greatest ever produced for TV.  RJ didn't grow up dreaming of being an actor. It is not something many kids consider when they are teased and bullied. Like his character on Breaking Bad, RJ has cerebral palsy, a neurological condition that affects his speech and muscles. Now he is using his celebrity to advocate for people with disabilities and to take a stand against bullying in a campaign called 'Cut the Bull'.
