AMC's 'Breaking Bad' Season 3 Premiere Event in Times Square NYC from Thomas Attila Lewis on Vimeo.

We missed the "Breaking Bad" season 3 premiere event in LA on March 9th, which featured the "meth lab trailer" but we caught up with them today in Times Square in NYC where the team completed their cross country trip.

We spoke with Aaron Paul ("Jesse Pinkman"), Bryan Cranston ("Walter White"), and series creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan, about the new season of "Breaking Bad" on AMC. We got to ask Aaron Paul about the challenges of working simultaneously on AMC's "Breaking Bad" and HBO's "Big Love"; we asked Bryan Cranston about the challenges of directing the premiere episodes and his history with series creator Vince Gilligan; and we asked Vince Gilligan about how he met and chose Cranston 15 years ago on an episode of "The X-Files" (where Gilligan was heavily involved as writer and producer) as well as some of our crvazy theories about chemistry and "Breaking Bad".

"Breaking Bad" season 3 premieres on Sunday at 10pm on AMC
