killed JFK took Avril Lavigne’s last name during their marriage? I don’t think anyone else knew, either, until Whibley filed a petition to have the last name changed back to his maiden name.

Actor RJ Mitte, who played Flynn (Walter White Jr.) on Breaking Bad, is embarking on a musical career. Like on the show, Mitte has mild celebral palsy and is having difficulty learning the guitar and piano. Mitte says, “I’m learning guitar, I’m learning piano. I have a bit of an issue as I only have one good hand and one good ear, but I’m slowly getting over it one day at a time. We’ll see what happens.” Best of luck to the seemingly nice fellow.
