The actor formerly known as Flynn Walt Jr. is stepping back into the spotlight—literally!

RJ Mitte hit the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood's presentation at Men's Fashion Week in Milan on June 21, sporting, for one of his looks, a device we can only describe as a vest-breastplate hybrid, which he wore with a distressed sweatsuit and printed sandals. (For the record, he rocks the offbeat get-up.) And not only that! The actor, who signed with Elite Model Management in November 2014, opened and closed the show.

You may recall that Vivienne Westwood loves tapping talented actors for her shows: Game of Throne's Gwendoline Christie walked the runway for her women's ready-to-wear collection during Paris Fashion Week in March.

Mitte is best known for his portrayal of Walter White Jr. on AMC's groundbreaking series Breaking Bad, in which he played a character with impaired motor skills and speech difficulties due to cerebral palsy. Mitte was diagnosed with a milder form of cerebral palsy at age three, and used crutches, like his character from the show, during childhood.

While this may be the 22-year-old's runway debut, he's not new to modeling: Mitte starred in a Gap campaign last year, posing in a sexy denim ad for the retailer.
