BadgerPlayed by Matt Jones
Badger is one of Jesse's stoner friends. The two reconnect after Jesse runs into Badger, who is on probation working in a dollar-bill costume to promote a real estate company. After Walt stops cooking the first time, Jesse and Badger produce meth themselves but come to blows when Jesse tosses out the first two batches, claiming they're sub-standard.
When Walt and Jesse decide to control distribution themselves, Badger becomes a dealer until an Albuquerque police detective busts him. The DEA becomes involved, and Hank Schrader offers Badger a sweet deal if he'll give up his supplier. Walt and Jesse hire Saul Goodman to defend Badger, and Saul arranges for him to finger an ex-convict paid to take the rap.
Badger lays low for a while but is back in Albuquerque when Jesse starts skimming excess meth from Gus's superlab. Pretending to be in recovery, Badger and Skinny Pete attend Jesse's NA meetings and slyly hype the blue meth, but the two begin following the 12-step program for real and can't bring themselves to undermine addicts attempting to stay clean. "It's like shooting a baby in the face," says Badger.
Jesse falls apart after shooting Gale Boetticher and tempts Badger and Skinny Pete into using meth again. Craving even more distraction Jesse throws a multi-day drug party that wears both his friends out.
