Earlier this year we heard the exciting news that (soon-to-be former) ‘Breaking Bad‘ star Aaron Paul was considered the frontrunner for the title role in HBO’s upcoming drama ‘The Missionary,’ shooting after the AMC drama’s 2013 end. That role was recently given to ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ star Benjamin Walker after scheduling difficulties with Paul, but the show has netted yet another 'Breaking Bad' star, also one-time 'Friday Night Lights' star Jesse Plemons. Wait til you hear who he plays!
Yeah, Mr. Savage! Yeah, Mr. Hyneman! It what will surely turn out to be the news of the week (discounting that whole Disney 'Star Wars' thing), it seems that the science of 'Breaking Bad' will finally be put to the test, as 'Mythbusters' is set to tackle the AMC meth drama series in an upcoming episode. Series creator Vince Gilligan and star Aaron Paul will even take part in the episode, but which of 'Breaking Bad's infamous scientific scenes will the 'Mythbusters' put to the test?
Before he was the meth addict with a heart of gold on 'Breaking Bad,' Aaron Paul was a face you probably saw on TV a lot more than you realize. On today's Way Back When, we take a look at Aaron Paul before you knew his name -- and guess what! 'Breaking Bad' wasn't the first time he played an addict.
Imagine this: Aaron Paul plays a drug addict and criminal who finds a fresh direction in life thanks to a confidant and clever mentor/father figure who urges him to kick the habit and join his cause. However, this journey his new associate takes him on, while offering many rewards, may also ultimately be his downfall.
That's a rough summary of the trials of Paul's Jesse Pinkman on AMC's 'Breaking Bad', but it might also describe the character of Eddie Dean in Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' - a role that would seemingly fit the actor like a glove. But is he ready to tackle it? Find out after the break.
What did you do this weekend? Catch up on 'Breaking Bad,' or watch the James Bond saga before 'Skyfall' hits theaters? Well, Aaron Paul and Pierce Brosnan sure weren't. Both of them were out partying at the Radiohead concert in London, where they almost got kicked out and an awesomely hilarious photo (shown above) was created.
Seriously, how adorable is Aaron Paul? "Thank you for not killing me off," said the 'Breaking Bad' star, as he accepted his second consecutive Emmy for the role of Jesse Pinkman. Paul referred to series creator Vince Gilligan's initial plan for the Jesse Pinkman character, which would have seen him dead inside the first several episodes
'Breaking Bad' was a pretty big turning point for both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Though Cranston had already racked up a following from his role on 'Malcolm in the Middle' and his vast list of supporting characters on the big screen, it was Paul who really went from being a semi-unknown actor to getting a mainstream fan base. Now his latest project 'Smashed,' of which we're already fans, is hitting theaters this October, and you can actually see bits of his performance (rather than just reading about it) in the all-new trailer.
Well, file this one under "how the hell did no one notice this before?" It seems Jesse Pinkman and Gustavo "Gus" Fring have more of a storied history than 'Breaking Bad' would have led us to believe, as the New Mexican meth chronicles aren't the first time Aaron Paul and Giancarlo Esposito have worked together on-screen. Rather, the two seem to have been at odds before, appearing together in a 2006 episode of Jennifer Love Hewitt's
