Colombia has taken note of the intense popularity of AMC’s recently wrapped “Breaking Bad,” and come up with their own Spanish-language remake of the show. Titled “Metastasis,” the Colombian series features a lead character named — drumroll, please — Walter Blanco. Yes, really.
Diego Trujillo plays chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-cook Blanco, with Roberto Urbina playing the Jesse Pinkman role (here named Jose), and Sandra Reyes playing Cielo (this would be their version of Skyler White, Walter’s wife).
The trailer for the series has a laughable voiceover, and we have to second the Playlist’s observation that it generally comes off as more of an SNL parody than a remake to rival the original. Take a look for yourselves, below.
