Bryan Cranston impersonates Ariana Madix on ‘WWHL: ‘He ‘did it better’
Andy Cohen praised Bryan Cranston’s performance on “Watch What Happens Live” after the “Breaking Bad” actor delivered an epic monologue from the “Vanderpump Rules” finale. Despite admitting he had never seen an episode of the Bravo show, Cranston gave an impassioned performance modeled after Ariana Madix, who was ranting at Tom Sandoval after his cheating scandal came to light.
Before beginning his speech, Cranston asked the audience, “Is it alright if I don’t know what I’m doing?” The Golden Globe winner then proceeded to mimic Madix’s hand gestures as emotional music played, saying, “I’ve been with you for nine years, when you were literally f–king, like, wearing combat boots and skinny jeans and didn’t have a dime to your name.” Cranston went on to criticize Sandoval, saying he was “worth nothing,” and closed the speech with, “I regret ever loving you,” before turning away from the camera.
Cohen and fellow guest Maya Hawke cheered Cranston’s performance, with Cohen exclaiming, “Give the man an Emmy!” Twitter users also praised Cranston’s acting ability, with one user joking that the Oscar nominee “did it better” than Madix herself.
Other social media users compared Cranston to Jon Hamm, who made headlines last week for a hilarious James Kennedy impersonation on “WWHL.”
While Kennedy called the reenactment “legend[ary]” via Instagram at the time, Madix has yet to acknowledge Cranston’s “Clubhouse Playhouse” segment.
