Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston Recreate 'Seinfeld' Smooch at Emmys

By now — or at least, if you caught the Emmys last night —  you have probably realized that Bryan Cranston, a.k.a Walter White, is none other than Dr. Tim Whatley on “Seinfeld.”

Indeed — before he cooked the best blue meth this side of New Mexico as Heisenberg, Cranston played a dentist who converts to Judaism to get a free pass on Jewish jokes (“a schtickle of fluoride”), causing an angry Jerry to be labelled an “anti-Dentite.”

Cranston, on stage with “Seinfeld” alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus to announce the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, tried to remind the “Veep” actress that they once were co-stars. In true Elaine fashion, she scoffed and blew him off.

When Louis-Dreyfus won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Cranston gave her memory a little jog — with a mind blowing kiss.

Whoa there, Bryan. I think we all remember now. But just in case, here’s another (less fun) memory refresher:

Cranston went on to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for “Breaking Bad.”
