I haven’t auditioned for anything since Clearview Regional High School’s 1992 production of Sweet Charity and that, naturally, didn’t go so well. Howevs, I think it’s safe to assume that if the casting director is cracking up while you’re reading your lines — the way the “Breaking Bad” casting director is giggling while a young, long-haired Aaron Paul auditions f0r the show in 2007 — it’s going pretty well. I missed last night’s episode (NO SPOILERS, THANKS!), but it’s safe to say that Jesse Pinkman is one of the greatest characters on TV right now, and most of that is thanks to Paul’s love and dedication to Jesse’s story. Pinkman was, after all, supposed to be killed off after the first season of the show, but Vince Gilligan saw something in Paul and kept him around. We do too. [YouTube]

“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]
Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and the rest of the dysfunctional, meth-making “Breaking Bad” family return this Sunday, for the second half of season five and the season finale. We are so sad to see them go, but also super stoked that after about a zillion months we’re going to find out just what Hank’s gonna do now that he knows Walt’s up to no good. To make this episode even more enjoyable, we’ve prepared this handy “Breaking Bad” Bingo Game Card. First one to mark off five in a row gets … a lucrative drug-making operation in Albuquerque?
To recap, here’s what you should look out for… Keep reading »
“Breaking Bad” will start its final descent this August, though the cast and crew have already wrapped up filming. As a memento of the occasion, Aaron Paul (that’s “bitch” Jesse Pinkman, to you) got every member of the cast and crew a personalized bottle of Bushmills whiskey. He tied it all with a note that reads: “This bottle is to help celebrate the end of a life changing era. Thank you to my ‘Breaking Bad’ family. This show would be nothing without all of you.” How frickin’ sweet. And way better than a bag of Jesse and Walt’s meth. [Buzzfeed]
I made a Ryan Gosling/Aaron Paul baby. Using a website called MorphThing, I combined their two faces to see if my hypothesis that if Gosling and Paul were smooshed together it would create Tom Sturridge (cast member in the Broadway play Orphans, and Sienna Miller’s very hot baby-daddy). Turns out, I was wrong. Instead it just created a Ryan Gosling with tiny eyes. You can see my handiwork after the jump… Keep reading »
“I’m the luckiest man on the planet. It doesn’t make sense to me. The way she looks at me … she has that magical glow about her. … We got engaged over New Year’s and I walked from the Eiffel Tower to St. Germain yesterday and I went to the stoop, the little step where I proposed to Lauren – and I took a picture of it and I sent it to her. … It’s just this little courtyard outside of this hotel, and we were just dancing to Édith Piaf by ourselves on New Year’s and then I begged her to marry me.”
–Aaron Paul on his proposal to fiancee Lauren Parsekian. Is this cute, or does it make you want to vomit? I might just be in the latter category because I’m a miserable person who can’t be happy for others. You? [People]
Depending on your mood and romantic history, you’ll either find the love story of “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul and his fiancee Lauren Parsekian to be hopelessly adorable or nauseatingly saccharine. During Paul’s Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night, he thanked his “beautiful, inspiring fiancée … Thank you so much for looking at me the way that you do, you truly saved me.” We love Aaron Paul, for obvious reasons, and Parsekian, who is ridiculously gorgeous, seems pretty cool, too — she’s the cofounder of the Kind Campaign, which works with abused and bullied young girls. There’s, like, a lot of love between these two, and they’ve documented it in interviews, photos and endless Twitter posts about one another. We’ve captured the most, um, intense Twitter exchanges between these two lovebirds for your enjoyment. You tell us — is it too cute or too much?
The hawk-eyed folks over at Buzzfeed noticed “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul in the front row at Burberry’s runway show in London this week looking “confused.” But looking through the photos myself, I think Aaron, a phenomenal thespian, is actually showing a far more nuanced range of emotions. Click onward to see what I mean…
I’m still reeling from Sunday night’s tragic episode of “Breaking Bad” — GODDAMMIT I DON’T WANT TO HATE YOU WALTER WHILE BUT I DO! I HATE YOU! You know what would take the edge off my pain? A donut. Specifically a Breaking Bad Blue Sky donut from Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Rebel Donut. Who knew Heisenberg’s blue meth could taste so sweet? See a closeup shot after the jump!

It’s come to our attention that methed up “Breaking Bad” hottie Jesse Pinkman has a scandalous back story. Jessie — real name Aaron Paul — admitted to Jay Leno that he once appeared on “The Price Is Right.” He made it all the way to the Showcase Showdown, too, but overbid and lost. Paul and his friends were regulars on the show, and had tons of tips and tricks for how to actually get called up as a contestant. Situate yourself in the middle of the audience, for instance, because people are hardly ever picked from the front rows. While Paul didn’t win big, his friend was called for the following show and won his Showcase. He treated Paul to a trip to New Orleans. [via HyperVocal]
