On the latest Geek/Countergeek, Keith Conrad and I discuss what went down at San Diego Comic-Con; how Bryan Cranston dropped the mic on a fan; what J.J. Abrams revealed about “The Force Awakens”; and what our reaction was to the new “Batman V Superman” trailer:
Watching this video makes me miss the duo of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul so, so much!
Titled “Barely Legal Pawn”, this humorous short features the “Breaking Bad” co-stars re-cast as the owners of a pawn shop that specializes in dealing with unique items. For example: Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ Emmy Award, which the talented comedienne finds herself hocking to help cover a drunken night of online shopping.
It’s a real treat to see how effortlessly Cranston can jump back into a comedic role – ala “Malcolm in the Middle” – after years of playing the dark, disturbed Walter White. And his chemistry with Paul is undeniable. Can someone create a new show for them to work on together again?
Thank you to the Television Academy for producing this hilarious video and reminding us of what we’ve been missing.
