The 'Breaking Bad' alums and Julia Louis-Dreyfus star in a fake reality show where the 'Veep' actress tries to sell her Emmy trophy.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reunite in a new promo the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards, teaming up with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. In the hilarious ad, the "Breaking Bad" actors star in a fake reality show set in their pawn shop called Barely Legal Pawn.
Louis-Dreyfus takes part in the faux show as she's desperate for some quick cash to buy an island. "I read somewhere that Celine Dion has her own island, and last night I had a little bit too much rose, did some online shopping, so now I have to pay for my own island," she says on her way to the pawn shop.
Once entering the pawn shop, she tries to sell her Emmy trophy which she got for starring on "Seinfeld". Paul mistakes her for Mary-Louise Parker, while Cranston pretends not to recognize her although he is a fan of her show "Veep".
For some reasons, Louis-Dreyfus changes her mind and decides to keep her Emmy trophy. But she has to go back to the pawn show because she left her car keys. She sees Paul and Cranston creepily wearing meth-cooking gear, but their side business is far from drug dealing. Toward the end of the clip, Paul manages to deliver his famous "Breaking Bad" catchphrase, "b***h."
The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be hosted by Seth Meyers. It will take place Monday, August 25 at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, California and air live coast-to-coast at 8-11 P.M. ET / 5-8 P.M. PT on NBC.
Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert were recently added to the presenter line-up, joining the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Halle Berry, Julianna Margulies and Julia Roberts. Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are also tapped as presenters.
