Samuel L. Jackson vs. Bryan Cranston: Who does Walter White better?
OK, that’s a no-brainer. But Samuel L. Jackson isn’t done with Reddit just yet.
Samuel L. Jackson isn’t done with Reddit just yet.
Breaking Bad is set to return August 11 for its final half-season, and its writing/production staff has already teased Reddit with an AMA. Now the Pulp Fiction actor is riding the buzz, performing Walter White’s now-classic “I am the one who knocks” speech to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Compare that to Bryan Cranston’s version:
On May 29, Jackson promised r/movies subscribers that he would read the best 300-word monologue submitted by a redditor as part of a charity deal. On May 31, Jackson kept true to his word.
Now he wants to take things to the next level: voicemail.
“If we break $175k, I will record 3 people’s voicemails!” Jackson posted in a June 5 thread on r/movies.
Redditors gathered in the thread to discuss the contest, Jackson’s latest monologue, and, of course, various voicemail greetings that they would love to hear Jackson record. They all featured some string of mothaphukkas.
In the thread, Jackson explained that upvotes did not matter this time around. It’s all about the donations.
“To explain, we are at $155k, if we break $175k we are randomly choosing 3 donors and I will record their voicemails for them!” he wrote.
The current contest, which again benefits the Alzheimer’s Association, is scheduled to close at 7PM Eastern Time on June 6.
