Breaking Bad’s new star is…

By Tamsin Crimmens

It would seem that J Crew's CEO, Mickey Drexler shares our obsession with American TV series .

What's more, Drexler has gone and done the very thing that every fan has dreamed of – bagged a part in the show. The businessman has turned actor for a small role in an episode to be aired in America on Sunday.

On meeting the creators of the show Drexler impressed them so much with his enthusiasm for the series that they urged him to get involved. So J Crew's CEO promptly flew to New Mexico to film the guest appearance. Way to go, Drexler.

For the uninitiated, Breaking Bad is the story of a high school chemistry teacher, Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) who turns to cooking crystal meth with a former pupil after receiving some bad news (the news was really bad).

Drexler plays a customer in Walter White’s car wash and, as fans of the show might expect, the role required the J Crew CEO to be less immaculately clad than usual. His character wears ‘a very out-of-character sweatshirt and ill-fitting jeans - definitely not from J Crew,’ reported the New York Post.

Come Monday night we’ll be CEO spotting when the episode drops on Netflix - while wearing J Crew, naturally.
