Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have reunited and, once again, they’re up to no good. The two star alongside “Veep’s” Julie Louis-Dreyfus in a comedy short released by the Television Academy for the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Shot like a reality show and produced by Audi of America, the “Breaking Bad” alums play the stars of “Barely Legal Pawn.”
In the short, Louis-Dreyfus attempts to sell her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, which she won for “Seinfeld” in 1996. Her reasoning for getting rid of the trophy is completely sound: She drank too much wine and bought an island online, so now she needs the cash.
Watching Cranton and Paul’s characters disagree over the importance of supporting actors is especially funny, given their roles on “Breaking Bad.” Also keep your eyes peeled for a Los Pollos Hermanos sign in the background.
The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards air Monday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
