Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul Try to Con Julia Louis-Dreyfus (watch!)

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have a new gig: ‘Barely Legal Pawn.” Check out their new customer.

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, memba’ them from “Breaking Bad?” Well now they’ve gone legit, barely, in a new viral video hyping the upcoming 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.

They play Buzz and Randy Jackson, the proprietors of “Barely Legal Pawn,” a spoof on real reality television shows like “Hardcore Pawn” and “Pawn Stars.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus who has four golden winged Primetime Emmy statuettes–three for Lead Actress In a Comedy and one for a supporting role in “Seinfeld”–decides she can part with one.

She’s in a bind because she read somewhere that Celine Dion has her own island, and, well, she just had to have her own, too. But that put her into a little bit of a cash bind. So, off she went to the pawn shop.

But Cranston, who plays the smarmy owner in snake-skin boots, tries to put one over on her by talking down the Emmy’s value. But Paul, his assistant, doesn’t get the hint and talks up the award.

Cranston, hems and haws while making snide wisecracks about his customer. He feigns interest in the award, wonders if it’s real and questions its value. Hey, a drama award is worth much more than a comedy award, he argues.

Julia just isn’t buying it, and finally in a fit of remorse she demands to have the reward back. But on her way out she loses her keys and has to back in the store looking for them.

What she discovers may shock you. Check out the video below and be sure to tune in on the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards Monday, Aug. 25 at 8pm Eastern on NBC.
