‘Breaking Bad’: Gilbert Gottfried Reads Walter White Monologue, Because Why Not?
While last night saw AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad‘ star Bryan Cranston netting himself another Critics’ Choice award for his iconic portrayal of chemistry teacher-turned meth kingpin Walter White, last week we saw ‘The Avengers‘ star Samuel L. Jackson reciting one of the character’s most famous monologues for charity. So, who best to become the danger next? Why, the dulcet tones of Gilbert Gottfried, of course!
‘Breaking Bad’ has been slow to dole out material in advance of its August 11 premiere, for which we expect spoilers of the final eight episodes to remain on a tight lockdown. Sure, we had the teaseworthy poster last week but we’ve had much more fun with the recent takes on Walter White’s infamous “I am the one who knocks” monologue, last week performed by Samuel L. Jackson, and today perfected by the parrot-voiced Gilbert Gottfried for an episode of ‘What’s Trending.’
Of course, we can only pray Gottried’s rendition kicks off a tidal wave of celebrity guest stars taking a shot at Bryan Cranston’s Emmy-winning work, lest our ‘Breaking Bad’ boredom meth binges grow any worse in the interim. Have a look at the video above, and try to enjoy the real scene ever again. Go on, we dare you.
