They are one of the most iconic screen duos ever, and now Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have got back together for a cameo in popular sitcom It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Cranston, who played dying school teacher/megalomaniac drug kingpin Walter White, teamed up with Paul who played his sidekick Jesse Pinkman, for Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney’s comedy series. 

The Breaking Bad actors play versions of themselves in the new season's first episode, titled Celebrity Booze: The Ultimate Cash Grab. In the show, they call in to Philly to promote their brand of mezcal, Dos Hombres (which is a real thing).

When Mac (Rob McElhenney) and Dennis (Glenn Howerton) approach the legendary pair, Cranston refuses to shake their hands, and it becomes very clear that Paul is the boss in their dynamic.

Watch the hilarious clip here: 

The episode opened the 16th season of the popular sitcom, and aired in the US this week. The series will be shown on Disney+ in the UK at some point. 

The official synopsis for the new season reads: “This year alone, Mac (McElhenney) battles with allergies and long-distance dating, Charlie takes on his long-forgotten sisters, Dee (Kaitlin Olson) fights for rent control and women’s athletics, Frank (Danny DeVito) wrestles for his gun, and Dennis (Howerton) struggles to improve his mental health.

Meanwhile, McElhenney and his fellow Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds are getting involved with Formula One.

Fresh from their football club getting promoted to the Football League, the Hollywood stars are now also joining an investor group, taking a 24 percent equity stake in Alpine Racing.
