The Funniest Improvised Scenes in TV Shows and Movies
Matt Jones, Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad has taken over the world in recent years; it's got to be one of the biggest and best television series of our times – if not ever. If you haven't seen it yet, then beg, borrow or steal your way to a copy of the box set and binge watch the entire thing over a weekend. You won't regret it.
In the series, the character of Badger is good friends with Jesse, one of the main characters. In an attempt to get back on the straight and narrow, Badger (played by Marr Jones) lands himself a job doing sign twirling during Season One Episode Five. If you've seen the series then you'll know the scene I'm talking about; if you haven't, then you'll know it when you see it. Believe it or not, everything that Jones said during that scene was improvised. Kudos to him for crafting a scene that has become so memorable in the minds of the fans!
Ben Stiller, Zoolander
Zoolander is one of those awesome comedies that never gets old, no matter how many times you see it. That's got to be down to the acting talents of Ben Stiller, at least in part. During the film, Stiller's character asks why male models have been so influential over recent years.
Stiller has admitted that when the scene was being filmed, he wasn't paying attention, which meant that he repeated the line, "But why male models?" Stiller's co-actor David Duchovny took the mistake in his stride and improvised the line, "Are you serious? I just told you that a moment ago". Amazingly, the line made it into the final cut, and eventually it became one of the most famous lines from the entire film. It just goes to show that even the most talented people in the world can slip up at times, but when they do it isn't necessarily the end of the world!
