Stephen Colbert Gets Vince Gilligan to Get the Downton Abbey Men to Do Breaking Bad

If anyone is going to get the ultimate Breaking BadDownton Abbey mash-up, it's Stephen Colbert. Apparently, Colbert — out to "spite" First Lady Michelle Obama, who got an early peek at the next season of Downton Abbey — tapped Vince Gilligan to get the men of Downton to reveal scenes from the next season of Breaking Bad. And there you have it: Breaking Abbey, featuring Mark Consuelous and a hideous goatee on Lord Grantham.
