Thomas Schnauz, one of the writers on the show, tweeted out a photo of Bryan Cranston, the actor who played White, wearing a Phillies jersey during an unused scene from the show's third season.

The reason they chose not to use it? According to Schnauz, the writers "realized that would make him too unlikable." 

Check out Schnauz's tweet below:

In a reply to a follower that asked why the photo existed, Schnauz said that Cranston was "goofing around" and actually is a Phillies fan. 

The show ended its five-season run on September 29th.
