Looks like the Primetime Emmy committee also misses seeing Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Having been too busy committeeing for Godzilla or Need For Speed, they brought Breaking Bad’s Walt and Jessie back for this Pawn Stars parody video also starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Created by the team behind Broad City, it’s pretty funny throughout but worth watching all the way to the end. Give it a watch and don’t forget to watch the Emmys and Godzilla and Need For Speed.

Heaven just gained an insufferable millionaire, as Ian Abercrombie, best known as Seinfeld‘s Mr. Pitt, passed away this weekend at the age of 77. Although Abercrombie had a long career that also included appearances in Army of Darkness, Wild Wild West, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, it was the eight Seinfeld episodes he appeared in that made him recognizable.

The eccentric millionaire Justin Pitt proved to be the bane of Elaine’s existence, making a steady stream of high-maintenance and bizarre requests that placed him among the show’s most memorable characters.

Below are a few of our favorite Justin Pitt moments from Seinfeld. Mourn ya till we join ya, Mr. Abercrombie.

The Candy Bars – “The Pledge Drive

I’m not sure if you can call it a recurring gag if it only occurs in one episode, but Mr. Pitt eating the Snickers bar with a knife and fork embodies the Seinfeld sensibility as well as anything the show put forth. In and of itself, the gag isn’t terribly funny (try explaining it to someone who hasn’t watched the show if you don’t believe me), but in the context of the weird Seinfeld universe, the quirk provides fodder for criticism, befuddlement, and exasperation for all the judgmental pricks on the show.

Again, it’s hard to explain why this is funny, so can we all just agree that it is?

Hitler – “The Gymnast”

Because Mr. Pitt only graced us with his presence in eight episodes, we find several of his finest and funniest moments in the same episodes. In addition to the magic eye painting (see below), The Gymnast features Mr. Pitt’s accidental Hitler speech, courtesy of a little spilled ink from Elaine.

Seinfeld historically went a little heavy on the Nazi humor, especially for a show called “Seinfeld.” To its credit, it was never not funny. The oblivion of Justin Pitt takes this scene from tasteless to hilarious pretty quickly. And it serves as one of the best freeze-frame closing shots in the show’s history.

In a startling and violent move against the dreaded Seinfeld Curse, “Seinfeld” alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus is becoming the Vice President of the United States for HBO in the comedy series “Veep.” Dreyfus is playing former United States Senator Selina Meyer, who after becoming Vice President realizes the job is a lot wackier than she was expecting. Joining her in this Great American Experiment are Anna Chlumsky as her Chief of Staff, and Buster Bluth himself, Tony Hale, as her “right-hand man.” Reid Scott, Tim Simons and Matt Walsh are also in the cast. It’s set to premiere in the election year of 2012

That’s quite a cast, and I have to admit I’m pretty optimistic about it, but come on- will America really ever be ready for a Vice President who isn’t a white male? This is clearly just another liberal fantasy from HBO. (Deadline)
