 Norbert plays Schuler in this 5th season episode of Breaking Bad, Madrigal.  Here is the episode synopsis from the Breaking Bad website. I have only included the part that deals with Norbert’s appearance and have not included any spoiler alerts or the entire episode synopsis: At a test kitchen in Germany, Madrigal Electromotive executive Peter Schuler glumly tastes a variety of dipping sauces. His secretary interrupts to inform him the police have arrived. On his way to face his fate, Schuler grabs an automatic defibrillator and locks himself in the bathroom. As the authorities pound on the door, Schuler places one of the AED contacts in his mouth and electrocutes himself. This episode is available as a download from iTunes, and as an Amazon Video Dowload or Video on Demand.
 The episode opens with Norbert’s character testing a variety of sauces for chicken nuggets, particularly an intriguing sauce that is a combination of French and Ranch dressing called “Franch.” Throughout the tasting he does not speak and appears completely disinterested. Check out this great little vignette from Huffington Post! This episode inspired an actual demonstration on how to make “Franch” dressing.
 He proceeds to taste a variety of sauces from Cajun Kick-Ass to BBQ, almost with an attitude of total disdain and complete boredom.
He eventually shoves aside all of the sauces and continues to eat the chicken nuggets plain.  This is a great little scene! At this point, a woman comes into the lab and informs Schuler that some men have requested to see him in his office. He leaves the lab without expression, however a look of concern comes over his face when he realizes that it is the police that are waiting for him. Schuler removes a defibrillator unit from the wall and proceeds to the lavatory. He removes his tie and shirt, then attaches a lead to his chest, and puts another lead into his mouth. All the while the woman is talking to him through the door saying that it is urgent that he come to his office at once. He ignores her, turns on the unit and electrocutes himself,falling to the hard floor. The woman’s pleas for him to open the door are ignored as Schuler methodically goes about the process of attaching the electrodes to his chest.
