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.”
“The Simpsons” 25th anniversary marathon on cable network FXX — now airing every episode, plus the 2007 feature film — includes a surprising insight for careful observers: The award-winning cartoon sitcom is one of the Jews’ best friends.
The 66th Primetime Emmy awards, held at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live will air this evening on NBC. Hosted by Seth Meyers (no, not Jewish), you can except lots of laughs, almost Oscar-worthy red carpet glamour and many tears shed over the expected Robin Williams tribute.
Here are some of the Jewish nominees your should watch out for tonight. The ceremony kicks off at 8 p.m. EST (Red carpet at 7:30). Don’t be late!
