Breaking Bad: Walter White Look-Alike Wanted on Meth Charge in Illinois

In another case of life imitating art, police in Galesburg, Illinois are on the look-out for a man who looks just like Walter White from the hit AMC series Breaking Bad.

You couldn’t be blamed for mistaking the wanted man’s mugshot for Mr. White if you saw it in passing. He bears such an uncanny resemblance to the fictional villain, and his mugshot coincidentally comes on the heels of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

The icing on the cake would be if his lawyer resembles Jimmy McGill, better known under his alias Saul Goodman.

Walter White portrayed by Bryan Cranston (left) versus the real-life Todd W. Barrick Jr, wanted for breaking probation on meth-related charges (right).

The man, 50-year-old Todd W. Barrick Jr., is wanted for breaking probation on a meth-related charge. Details are scarce on the his backstory so it’s unclear how far his resemblance to actor Bryan Cranston’s most famous character goes. Was Barrick once a high school teacher? Has he recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer? Is he currently wearing a pork pie hat? Nobody knows.

The only thing we do know is that police need help in finding him, and since he is wanted he could also be dangerous.

Please contact the Galesburg Police Department if you see this man or have any information on his whereabouts.
