Walter White lookalike sought by US police as mugshot goes viral

Viral News | Published:

Breaking Bad fans felt the image resembled Bryan Cranston’s character in the popular TV show.

A Walter White lookalike has gone viral after a police mugshot caught the attention of Breaking Bad fans.

An image of Todd Barrick Jr was posted on Facebook by officers from Galesburg Police Department in Illinois, who said the 50-year-old is wanted in connection with a probation violation.

Referencing Walter White’s alias in the show, one said “Heisenberg is Alive!!”, while another quoted one of the character’s most memorable lines, commenting: “Say my name!!!”

Another wrote that he was “in the house with a pizza on the roof” and several people suggested the whole thing was a stunt by Netflix to promote the upcoming Breaking Bad movie, El Camino, which is to be released on the streaming platform next month.

To make the resemblance even more striking, at 50 Barrick Jr is the same age White was at the start of the series.

It is not the first time police have sought help looking for someone who resembles as well known TV character.
