R.J. Mitte, one of the stars of the hit AMC show "Breaking Bad," will speak at Harper College next week.
Mitte, who played Walter "Flynn" White Jr. during the show's acclaimed five-season run that ended Sunday, will talk about overcoming adversity in his own life and take questions from the audience during his visit at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 8 in the college's Performing Arts Center, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.
Walter White Jr. is the son of the show's main character Walter White -- a high school teacher turned drug dealer.
Mitte, who like his character on the show has mild cerebral palsy, has become an advocate for people with disabilities.
The 21-year-old Louisiana native is a spokesman for "I AM PWD," an organization that advocates for actors with disabilities. He also is a Celebrity Youth Ambassador for United Cerebral Palsy and the Screen Actors Guild's spokesman for actors with disabilities.
Mitte's visit falls during Disability Awareness Month and is part of Harper's Becoming Aware series.
Admission to the event is $5. To purchase tickets, contact the box office at www.harpercollege.edu/boxoffice or at (847) 925-6100
