“Breaking Bad”‘s Aaron Paul turned up on Reddit yesterday to answer a bunch of fan questions. After verifying that he was, in fact, Mr. Jesse Pinkman, Paul got down to discussing his TV girlfriend (Jessica Lange), Chewbacca vs. R2D2, and the best bowler on the “Breaking Bad” cast. Check out our favorite questions and answers, after the jump! [Reddit]
Are you satisfied with the ending of “Breaking Bad”? Do you think the fans will be?
Aaron Paul: I gotta be honest. I never wanted “Breaking Bad” to end, simply because I’m a huge fan of the show and I didn’t want to be unemployed. But after reading the final 8 episodes and understanding where the writers are going with it. I’m so happy they ended it the way they did and I think all of you will be happy as well. It’s a dark, crazy ride to the final episode but it is a fun one. Yeah, bitch.
As a chronic former meth user, I relate to the show in a somewhat different way. Did you actually hang around any meth users to prepare for your role as Jesse? Some of the acting was spot on.
Aaron, I often hear about help for those who’ve been bullied, but rarely hear about help for the bullies themselves. As bullying is often a symptom of one’s own personal strife, are you doing anything to educate and help those who are known bullies to prevent further bullying and gain insight into their issues?
