"Breaking Bad" Return Episode Dedicated to Teen Who Died from Cancer

Lewis Jacobs/AMC(NEW YORK) -- The return episode of Breaking Bad this past Sunday was dedicated to Kevin Cordasco, a teenage fan of the AMC series who died from cancer.

The episode included an on-screen dedication to the 16-year-old from Calabasas, California, who had been fighting neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer, for several years. Kevin lost his battle on March 11.

Cordasco's father, also named Kevin Cordasco, told The Hollywood Reporter, "He and his friends watched it obsessively and ate pizza in his bedroom. There was something about the Walter White character…the way he took control of his illness, and his life, that really resonated with Kevin."

Before Cordasco passed, he got to meet show creator Vince Gilligan, star Bryan Cranston, and other cast members. Kevin’s father adds, "Bryan and his wife sat for hours at the hospital. They even invited Kevin to the writers’ room. He was beyond thrilled."

Cordasco's parents were grateful the producers made their son's dreams come true before he died, and they plan on continuing the tradition of watching Breaking Bad every week with Kevin’s friends.

Breaking Bad resumed its fifth and final season on Sunday.

'Grey's Anatomy' Cast to Perform Songs in Musical Episode

Disney/ABC Television Group(NEW YORK) -- Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" and The Fray's "How to Save a Life" became hits largely because they were featured on Grey's Anatomy.  Now those songs are coming back to the ABC series, but this time, they'll be performed by the cast members themselves.

The March 31 episode of Grey's Anatomy, dubbed "Grey's Anatomy: The Music Event," will feature the characters singing their way through "a cataclysmic event" that "rattles the lives of the Seattle Grace doctors to the core," according to the network.  Also, Callie, played by Sara Ramirez, is on the verge of a life-changing moment with Arizona, and she "envisions her hospital and friends as it has never been seen before," according to ABC.

A total of nine songs will be performed in the episode, according to Billboard.  The soundtrack will be released March 31.  In addition to "Chasing Cars" and "How to Save a Life," Billboard reports that viewers will see Ramirez, a Tony-winning former Broadway star, sing Brandi Carlile's "The Story" in the episode, and also duet with Jessica Capshaw on KT Tunstall's song "Universe & U."

Other cast members who will sing include Chandra Wilson, Kevin McKidd, Kim Raver, Daniel Sunjata, Scott Foley, and Justin Chambers.

Photo Courtesy - 20th Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- If you can't wait until Sunday to see what Glee has in store for its post-Super Bowl episode, Entertainment Weekly is offering a sneak peek on its website.

The magazine has posted a one-minute clip of the opening dance number.  A group of Cheerios wearing Katy Perry-style purple wigs dance in a gym to Perry's hit "California Gurls" while some other Cheerios, wearing bikini tops and skirts, twirl fire batons.  Two of the girls even have fire shooting out of cones attached to their chests while in the background, bicyclists perform stunts on ramps.  The clip ends with an unimpressed Sue Sylvester, played by Jane Lynch, declaring, "I'm bored."

The number was shot with the hope that male football fans won't change the channel after the Super Bowl is over.  Producer Brad Falchuck tells Entertainment Weekly, "We put stuff in there understanding that there are a lot of dudes who watch the Super Bowl."
