Breaking Bad fans are livid with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul over their new project.
After weeks of teasing what fans believed was the Breaking Bad sequel movie, Cranston and Paul revealed on Tuesday what they have been working on for months. News flash it is not the movie sequel, nor does it have anything to do with this hit AMC show.
The Breaking Bad costars are teaming up to release a Mezcal called Dos Hombres. Paul made the announcement, as well as explained how the project came about via Instagram. He began explaining the two were having dinner discussing how they could work together again, knowing acting together might be out the window for a while.

“The younger one looked at his drink and said, you know what we should do? We should do a really special Mezcal. The older one said, you mean the liquor with a worm at the bottom? Nah, that was just some bullshit gimmick, I mean real, artesanal Mezcal made by hand in Mexico,” he shared in his message explained how the project came about.
Paul went on to say he and Cranston even traveled to Oaxaca to find a version “so damn good even people who don’t think they like Mezcal will love it.”
“We named it Dos Hombres – two guys on a quest. It’s been a long and crazy journey, and we couldn’t be happier to share this with you and the rest of the world,” he shared before ending the message explaining where people could find out more about Dos Hombres.
Cranston and Paul are thrilled with their new venture, but Breaking Bad fans are fuming mad. They feel cheated and disappointed after weeks of tricks leading them to believe the men were reuniting Walter and Jesse.

Three years ago we sat in a sushi bar in New York. Talking about life and what we could possibly do down the road together. We had the time of our lives while shooting Breaking Bad and truly built a very special bond. Knowing that we couldn’t share the screen for quite a while – our thoughts turned to a new project. We sipped cocktails and thought about what it should be. The younger one looked at his drink and said, you know what we should do? We should do a really special Mezcal. The older one said, you mean the liquor with a worm at the bottom? Nah, that was just some bullshit gimmick, I mean real, artesanal Mezcal made by hand in Mexico. After that dinner we couldn’t get the idea out of our heads. So, we started traveling to Oaxaca to see if we could find it, and we mean it had to be “it,” something so damn good even people who don’t think they like Mezcal will love it. It had to be perfect or we weren’t going to do it. We searched high and low all over Oaxaca, met incredible people along the way and after a beautiful yet grueling search throughout that majestic landscape we believed we may have found our place. Our Mezcal. It was on a dirt-road, in tiny village, hours away from the center of town, we found it and it was perfect. Holy shit it was perfect. We looked at each other and just simply nodded. This is it. We named it Dos Hombres – two guys on a quest. It’s been a long and crazy journey and we couldn’t be happier to share this with you and the rest of the world. We are crazy about the taste, the aroma, and the versatility of this smokey, age-old alcohol. Try it, and let us know what you think. We are certain you will love it. Well, that’s our story. What’s yours? Go to Doshombres.com to get a bottle of your own. Follow us at @Doshombres and @Mezcal to hear more about Mezcal and Dos Hombres. — AP & BC
“So that was it?! That’s what the hype was about? Nothing related to Breaking Bad?! DISAPPOINTED!” wrote __akash.r__

Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have a new Mezcal company. It has nothing to do with Breaking Bad and fans are not happy with the two men. They certainly fooled fans into thinking the meth mixing duo were back together.
What do you think about Cranston and Paul’s announcement?
