Call it rekindled showmance.
At the Emmy Awards on Monday, big winners Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston turned up the heat with a passionate (staged) kiss that reminded Seinfeld fans of his role on that show as her love interest, Tim Whatley.
And although it’s been years since then, it appears the two have still got it. On Tuesday, the Breaking Bad star posted a side-by-side Instagram photo of their ’90s TV kiss with their Emmys smooch – and from the looks of it, the embraces are identically passionate.
“I find this somewhat mind-blowing,” wrote Cranston. Seems not much has changed – except for the fact that with multiple Emmys each, they’re both now TV royalty. Thankfully their spouses have a good sense of humor.
Before going through with the stunt, “I asked my husband if he was okay with that and he said sure,” the Veep star told PEOPLE on Monday. “Bryan checked with his wife and she said sure, so we said we would go for it.”
Ahem, more like go at it!
