Actor Aaron Paul thrilled fans by reprising his Breaking Bad character for the season premiere of U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live over the weekend (28Sep13). Paul dressed as troubled drug dealer Jesse Pinkman to help kick off the 39th season of the long-running series - just one day before the last ever episode of Breaking Bad airs in the U.S. on Sunday (29Sep13). He appeared in a sketch alongside comedian Jay Pharoah, playing U.S. President Barack Obama, to discuss America's medical care system. Referring to Bryan Cranston's Breaking Bad character Walter White, a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher-turned-drug lord, he said, "I had this friend and he got sick. Like, cancer sick. But because there wasn't Obamacare, he couldn't afford treatments. So he was like, backed into a corner. So, he did what any of us would have done. He started cooking meth." Paul also featured in a mock advertisement for e-Meth, a comedy take on electronic cigarettes. The first episode of the latest SNL season, hosted by former cast member Tina Fey, had Grammy winners Arcade Fire as the musical entertainment.
