WILMINGTON, NC (Twitter) — As thousands gathered to take a stand for the state's film incentives Saturday, some famous actors filming in the Port City rallied support, too.

Dean Norris, known as Hank Schrader in AMC's series, "Breaking Bad," tweeted pictures and blurbs in support of the cause.

Norris, who's in town filming the upcoming TV series "Under the Dome," tweeted "NC film incentive rally! Downtown Wilmington," followed by a tweet that read, "Film = jobs," including a picture of himself at the event.

Area leaders and supporters at the rally say the film industry provides Wilmington with jobs and revenue, and they will continue to fight for the industry.

    Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Breaking two-part news! :(1) A man who makes his living in the TV and film industry says he supports incentives for the industry in which he makes a living. (2) Everyone else now obligated to respond as if his words were manna from heaven simply because his face has been on TV and movie screens.

    This kind of stuff just makes me want to puke. Apparently the day-to-day heroics of regular people with regular lives, the kind of people who actually make our society run, no longer have value. The only thing that seems to count today is how many times a person has been seen by others.

    This news piece is a great example of that. An inane comment is treated as words coming down from the gods. What’s next; a minute-by-minute log of celebrities’ flatulence?

    “Breaking Bad Wind where does the smell go?”
    It’s just a Gus in the wind…or is that gust?

    …an actor in the film industry would tend to lean in that general direction.

    Who doesn’t want a tax-free check? Hernandez gets it, Gonzales gets it, Zapata gets it…now the Actors get it. For now, I just keep paying.
