Biography

After performing yeoman work on television and in the occasional feature for over a decade, actor Aaron Paul finally landed two breakout roles in quick succession, playing a responsible young man struggling to prove his love to his conflicted bride on "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-2010) and a crystal meth addict who is in over his head on "Breaking Bad" (AMC, 2008-2013). The two roles could not be more diametrically opposed, but they both showcased Paul's ability to play to extremes. Prior to those roles, Paul made his television debut with an episode of the original "Beverly Hills, 90210" (Fox, 1990-2000) and Jeff Bridges' estranged son in "K-Pax" (2002). After warming up for Jesse Pickman as an unnamed wasted guy in "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" (2002), Paul landed a slew of guest spots on shows as varied as "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009), "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-2012), "Veronica Mars" (UPN/The CW, 2004-07), "Joan of Arcadia" (CBS, 2003-05) and "Sleeper Cell" (Showtime, 2005-06). He dipped his toe into blockbuster waters with a small part in "Mission: Impossible III" (2006), which in turn led to his role as Sarah's good natured husband on "Big Love." Immediately on the heels of that recurring role, he played outcast meth addict Jesse Pinkman to Bryan Cranston's cancer-stricken chemistry teacher-turned-methamphetamine cook on "Breaking Bad," a role that made Paul a critical favorite and Emmy Award winner, both of which signaled he had finally arrived.
