Who knew that telling jokes was such serious business?
In Joking Bad, a 13-minute parody of the hit TV show Breaking Bad, Jimmy Fallon and some of his Late Night crew get down and dirty by conjuring up a somewhat "illegal" plan to save the comedian’s career. Check it out below!
Fallon plays Breaking Bad anti-hero Walter White, and he's got Bryan Cranston's character down to a tee, sporting Walt's trademark buttondown shirt -- and even his bald head! Steve Higgins, the Late Night announcer, is Jesse (played on the AMC series by Aaron Paul), and the duo partner up to sell jokes on the black market. Several surprise celebrity guests -- including Jay Leno -- even get in on the act.
The parody hit the web just hours after news broke that a spin-off of Breaking Bad was green-lit by AMC. The show will be a prequel to the series, tentatively titled Better Call Saul, and will be about meth-dealer Walt's attorney, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk). It’s just latest bit of awesome Breaking Bad news for fans to obsess over -- and with the series ending soon, they’re going to need it!
