Breaking Bad fans get celebrity surprise

The “Breaking Bad” star surprised a group of Irish tourists in a sightseeing van in front of his Hollywood home. He saw the tour and came outside to greet them and take photos.

“Sometimes I see the van, and sometimes I don’t. And when I do, I always try to say hello,” he told McNeive, who captured the encounter on camera.
