Sometimes we have a hard time following the dramatic plot twists and turns in "Jersey Shore." Did Mike and Snooki smush or what? Is there any guy in the house Ryder hasn't smushed? Why is Vinny having an existential crisis again?

It seems with every answer comes another question, which is why the powers-that-be write weekly recaps so we can all stay up-to-date — and that recap just got a whole lot better, because Oscar-nominee Gary Oldman is reading it.

That's right, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" tasked the "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" thesp with giving a dramatic reading of this week's synopsis. From Snooki peeing on herself and calling it a Jersey shower, to Dina proudly announcing she never washes her hands after using the bathroom, Oldman lays it all out there with style, panache and a super-smart-sounding British accent.

Check it out and see if you think Oldman could be the new housemate. Hey, we'd buy a silk-screened t-shirt from him.
