Watch: Gary Oldman Dramatically Recap ‘Jersey Shore’

Jimmy Kimmel loves talking about “Jersey Shore,” mainly because the show is just so ridiculous. But last night’s episode, which involved Snooki trying to have sex despite a UTI, was so silly that he wanted to see what it would be like if a real Oscar-nominated actor read the recap of the episode.

So he enlisted “Jimmy Kimmel Live” guest Gary Oldman, nominated for his work in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” to read MTV’s synopsis of the episode. Of course, he read it in as dramatic a way as he could, reminding us of when Conan O’Brien would have James Lipton do dramatic readings of Kevin Federline tunes.
