Better Call Saul Creator Says Finale Will Change How You Watch Breaking Bad

The creators of Better Call Saul have surprisingly made it clear that the final season of the series will have plenty of crossovers with Breaking Bad, including appearances by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, respectively. While the announcement did not come as a massive shock to anyone, it was strange that they decided to announce what could have been a secret appearance by the pair, even to Aaron Paul, who expected the producers wanting to keep the information under wraps. Now co-creator Peter Gould has said that by the end of Better Call Saul, fans will have a different perception of the events of Breaking Bad.

Better Call Saul was the first spin-off from the main series, which acted as a prequel to the show focusing on the dubious lawyer Saul Goodman. Throughout the series, it became obvious that the two shows would cross over completely, but it was never known whether the Breaking Bad leads would be returning for some new scenes. Of course, Aaron Paul has already been seen in the sequel spin-off movie El Camino, but this time the new scenes will explicitly fall within the existing timeline of Breaking Bad.

Gould recently spoke to EW about the final season of Better Call Saul. As well as revealing that the finale will also be the final piece of the Breaking Bad puzzle for now, he teased that whatever happens across these last episodes will resonate through the Breaking Bad story and weave everything together. He said:

There has been speculation of other spin-offs coming from the world of Breaking Bad for some time, but Gould’s comments seem to have put those to bed for now. While there is a never say never attitude toward every hit series and movie having some kind of revival in the future, Gould is now moving on to something different.

In many ways, Better Call Saul has managed to weave its story of the character of Jimmy/Saul into the storylines of Breaking Bad, both in terms of timeline and characters, in an almost perfect way. For that reason, it is hard to imagine why anyone would want to try and milk that again after managing to pull off the feat of having two series and a movie all set in the same world that has been received with almost perfect critic and audience ratings. If this season of Better Call Saul turns out to be the last time we see these characters, it would perhaps be the best way to ensure the Breaking Bad legacy lives on intact.

Is Angelyne’s Jeff Glasner a Real Journalist? Where is He Now?

Published

gary baum.v1

‘Angelyne‘ is an addictive biographical drama TV series on Peacock. Created by Nancy Oliver, it delves into the intriguing life of Angelyne, a model and media influencer, who became a pop culture icon in Los Angeles during the 80s. Apart from her rise to stardom, the show also captures the perspectives of those who know her up close and how they impact her journey.

One such person is Jeff Glasner, an entertainment journalist, who sets out to find out the secrets Angelyne fiercely protects and drastically changes her life. The realistic portrayal of the character makes the audience wonder whether Jeff is based on a real person. Let’s unravel this mystery together, shall we? SPOILERS AHEAD.

Is Jeff Glasner a Real Journalist?

In ‘Angelyne,’ Jeff Glasner is a journalist from The Hollywood Reporter who writes an explosive article about the sensational celebrity’s childhood and family. For his research, he spends time with her and records interviews, but when she refuses to divulge anything substantial about her life and beginnings, he decides to conduct his own investigation. In reality, Jeff’s character is based on journalist Gary Baum, who works for The Hollywood Reporter.

In 2017, Gary wrote and published an elaborate article that details Angelyne’s humble beginnings, before she became famous as the “Billboard Queen” of Los Angeles. Earlier, he wrote a profile article for her in 2015, but as per him, she dodged any questions about her parents or other topics like religion and her upbringing. In his 2017 article, Gary shared that in the fall of 2016, he was approached by a man who went by the pseudonym, Ed Thompson. He was a federal government employee who undertook paid assignments as a hobby genealogist on the side.

For his personal interest, Ed decided to find out about Angelyne a few years earlier and then contacted Gary, who was researching her. He provided the material he had collected over the years from public databases, including her yearbook pictures, as well as the immigration, marriage, and death records of her parents. All this information helped prove that Angelyne’s original name was Renee Tami Goldberg (earlier known as Ronia Tamar Goldberg). She was born in October 1950 in Poland, to Jewish parents who were Holocaust survivors.

Ed’s findings also revealed Angelyne’s tumultuous childhood as well as her brief marriage to Michael Strauss during her high school days. After her divorce in 1969, her original name resurfaced in 2016, when she discreetly petitioned to change it to Angelyne legally. However, in the legal document, she mentioned being a resident of Louiseville, Kentucky, and claimed to have been born in 1962. Since all this data was different than what Ed had shared, Gary tried contacting Angelyne’s friend and assistant Scott Hennig for clarity.

To Gary’s disappointment, both Scott and Angelyne reportedly rubbished the data provided by Ed and discouraged him from pursuing the matter any further. Luckily, when he continued looking for clues, he found an advertisement for a trophy engraving company that matched the residential address which Ed had found earlier. Moreover, Gary managed to track down Angelyne’s former husband Michael Strauss, who then confirmed all of the journalist’s findings and provided a fitting conclusion to his research.

After so many months of hard work, Gary’s article got published in August 2017 and received a massive response from Angelyne’s fans as well as the other public, who till then, were highly curious about her life. His written piece is one of the most accurate feature articles on the media icon’s illustrious life and has provided the base for the show’s narrative.

Where is Gary Baum Now?

Presently, Gary Baum works as a senior writer at The Hollywood Reporter, where he has been working for more than ten glorious years. Priorly, he worked with Angeleno Magazine for almost seven years, after receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in Print Journalism from the University of Southern California.

Gary has written articles on several other relevant topics, such as the clearing of tents for unhoused residents in Los Angeles for film shoots, Jewish studio heads in Hollywood history, and investigative pieces on prominent public and administrative figures. Though he is highly active on the professional front, he seems to be rather private on social media about his life. As far as we can tell, he currently resides in Los Angeles with his family.
