Aaron Paul Greets Hollywood Tour Group, Talks ‘Breaking Bad’ Final Season
Meeting Aaron Paul isn’t as hard as you might think – last week, when a Hollywood tour bus stopped in front of his house, the Breaking Bad star came outside to talk to the fans.
Paul, best known for his Emmy-winning role as Jesse Pinkman on the hit AMC show Breaking Bad with Bryan Cranston, came down from his house, shook hands with the entire tour group, and made small talk. He told them that when he sees the tour bus outside his house, he always tries to make it down to say ‘hello’ to the fans. He then climbed onto the bus and took pictures with everyone who asked.
On July 29, Paul, Cranston and Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan sat down in New York City to talk about the last eight episodes of the show, premiering August 11. Though they gave no specific spoilers, they discussed their Breaking Bad tattoos, the previous season finale, and acknowledged the funny theory that suggests Cranston’s character – Walter White – entered the Witness Protection Program and emerged as the loveable Hal on Cranston's old television show Malcolm In The Middle.
The group was reportedly emotional during the talk, sad to see the show ending. “The final eight [episodes] are just… I can't wait for you guys to see it,” Paul said. “Each season has, any fan of Breaking Bad knows, Breaking Bad gets progressively darker. And the final eight hours of this TV show is just such a violent, brutal sprint.”
