Bryan Cranston Plays Walter White, Trump's Head of the DEA, in the 'SNL' Cold Open

By Dustin Rowles | Saturday Night Live | December 10, 2016 |


In tonight’s SNL cold open, Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway sits down with Jake Tapper to discuss Trump’s confounding cabinet choices, which leads to Trump’s choice of Head of the Drug Enforcement Agency, Walter White (with Bryan Cranston reprising his character).

I love Walter White. I love Bryan Cranston, and it’s not a bad joke as a one-liner on “Update.” But Dear God, it’s too early to bring back Cranston’s character to deliver iconic lines (“I am the one who knocks”) as cheesy catchphrases. Also, the show totally wasted its best opportunity to go political — and cover the week’s insane political news — with a lame sketch built around the Cranston cameo.
