The Funniest Blooper Reels From Dramatic Shows & Movies

GoTBloopers-wide2Photo: Via @Game of Thrones.
As the saying goes, comedy equals tragedy plus time. Actors and crew members on serious projects don't have time to wait for humor, though. They need to inject a little levity in the midst of filming subject matter that can be a serious downer. The result? These surprisingly light-hearted blooper reels from some of the more depressing TV shows and movies out there.
Not only are the gag reels hilarious, the juxtaposition between what goes on behind the scenes and the final product is fascinating. No one can be serious all the time, and the different types of humor each actor brings to diffuse the tension can be completely out of character — and almost shocking. Just wait 'til you hear the profanity that emerges from Matt Bomer's handsome mouth when he forgets a line. It would make Richard Pryor blush.
So, the next time you're binge-watching Breaking Bad and things are getting way too tense, think of Walter White cocking a dildo at Jesse like it's a gun. Oh, and it goes without saying, but *many* spoilers ahead, and unless you're wearing headphones, these gag reels are most likely NSFW.
