Are you part of the Breaking Bad fan base that already wants a reunion? Are you also such a big Julia Louis-Dreyfus fan that you’d want her in on it, just for kicks?
Well, good news!
In preparation for Monday’s Emmy Awards, the Television Academy has unleashed a comedy sketch featuring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul alongside the Veep star herself: “Barely Legal Pawn.” (Get it?)
The setup is that Louis-Dreyfus, after learning that Céline Dion owns her own island, has a little too much rosé and has to pawn her old Seinfeld Emmy. Cranston and Paul play the pawn shop owners, who happen to be hiding a big secret.
These award show sketches tend more toward eye-rolling than gut-busting, but this one works perfectly. And it’s great to have Cranston, after six years on Breaking Bad, remind us what a funny goofball he can be.
