See Jimmy Fallon Channel Walter White in Amusing Breaking Bad Parody

Originally posted 09/12/2013 12:05PM



Think the dark world of crystal meth distribution is a seedy business? Apparently that's nothing compared to the sordid world of black market joke selling.

Just ask Jimmy Fallon.

The comic and his Late Night with Jimmy Fallon team debuted a Breaking Bad parody they dubbed "Joking Bad" on Wednesday night – and it's immediately gone viral.

The nearly 13-minute digital short features real life new father Fallon, 38, looking alarmingly like Bryan Cranston's Walter White, who is told he has no more than six months left on his late night show.

PEOPLE's TV Critic: James Gandolfini Was a True Television Giant | James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini Was True Television Giant: PEOPLE's TV Critic

Originally posted 06/20/2013 09:40AM

In a nutshell: James Gandolfini gave one of the greatest performances in one of the greatest roles in one of the greatest series at the dawn of what is now regarded as television's new golden age.

In fact, you could probably remove those qualifying “one of"s and still find heads nodding in agreement among critics, viewers and whatever poor thugs are left hanging around the Bada Bing club, nursing their beers and watching the dancers.

Gandolfini, who died at age 51 in Rome on Wednesday, was known throughout the world for his six seasons on The Sopranos (1999-2007), the classic HBO drama about a mob boss living in suburban New Jersey with his wife, two kids and some occasional, possibly symbolic ducks in the backyard.

Mobster and "waste management" executive Tony Soprano, as brilliantly conceived by series creator David Chase, was perhaps meant to put the kibosh on the romanticized Corleones of The Godfather, ruthless killers who nonetheless had the smooth beauty of movie stars, eyes full of regret and an air of tragic inevitability.

She's got a powerful voice – and one powerful kick, apparently.

On Monday night's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Aussie comedy star Rebel Wilson proved she could belt out a tune and be her own rhythm section all at the same time.

The Pitch Perfect actress joked with Leno in the interview about how she got the role of Fat Amy in the comedy about an all-girls a cappella group.

"It's a comedy, but you also have to sing in it," Wilson said. "And they're like, 'Well, she kind of looks like Adele – but can she sing?' "
