Remember when Bryan Cranston was on Seinfeld? Well, Julia Louis-Dreyfus claims not to (she was joking, of course). In an effort to remind her of just how cozy his character was with Elaine in Seinfeld, Cranston interrupted Julia Louis-Dreyfus on her way up to the stage to collect her freshly-won Emmy Award and laid a serious smooch on her. Check it out in the video below!
Here's what happened. When Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston were presenting together at the Emmy's, Louis-Dreyfus humorously noted that Cranston reminds her a bit of Tom Whatley, a recurring dentist/comedian character on Seinfeld. Cranston tried to tell her that he actually did play Tim Whatley, and that they shared a kiss. Louis-Dreyfus was all like...
Not long after she claimed to have no recollection of their kissing scene, Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance in HBO's Veep, and as you can see, Cranston was right there to make sure she never forgets him again.
Was it planned? The joke really was perfectly set up, and though it took her a second, Louis-Dreyfus definitely played along with the moment, making out with Cranston until Jimmy Fallon stepped in to break it up and remind her that she's just won an Emmy award. Of course, if she hadn't won, this fine moment may never have happened. Regardless of whether or not it was planned, it was funny and a definite highlight at the Emmys.
At present, the 2014 Emmy Awards are still underway. We're updating the list of winners here.
For those of you who really did forget that Bryan Cranston was once on Seinfeld, here's a clip...
