Soap operas are notoriously over the top, but do you know what’s even more ridiculous? Soap operas where the actors literally hang mid-air. Sounds totally implausible, right? Well, think again, because it happened.
Well, kinda. At least, it happened Monday night on The Tonight Show. Host Jimmy Fallon was chatting with guest Bryan Cranston when he dropped a major bomb: He unearthed from-the-vault tapes of Bryan and his stint as brothers on the short-lived (i.e.: three episodes) soap drama Suspended Suspense. And what’s the premise, you ask? Bryan and Jimmy played brothers who dealt with suspenseful issues…while suspended. Where the hell were their Emmys?
The three “episodes” Jimmy found depict the brothers fighting over their late millionaire father’s will. Jimmy drops a croissant and finds himself face to face with Bryan’s crotch. Bryan’s butt somehow ends up right in Jimmy’s face. It’s all so erotic, humorous and 100 percent iconic.
Watch the three-episode arc in the video above. We guarantee it will be the most important dramatic journey you take. (And now we wish this was an actual TV show and not just one of Jimmy’s cooked-up schemes! Fallon, you tease!)
