Executive summary: Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad

On AMC's Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul played drug dealer and meth-head Jesse Pinkman. The character was originally conceived as dying at the end of the first season, but as the show's producers grew more impressed by Paul's performance and his chemistry with Bryan Cranston, the plotline was reconceived with Pinkman surviving. Still, even after his character's life was spared, Paul says Cranston and others on the set would frequently approach him with comments like, "I'm not going to say anything but it was such a pleasure working with you."

His other work includes a recurring role on HBO's Big Love, and a small part as Tom Cruise's brother-in-law in Mission: Impossible III. He also appeared in the music video for Korn's "Thoughtless", and in TV commercials for Juicy Fruit gum, Kellogg's Corn Pops, Pepsi, and Pizza Hut. Paul has said that prior to his success on Breaking Bad, he frequently snuck into the Los Angeles theater where Jimmy Kimmel Live is taped, and loitered in the green room playing pool and drinking from the show's backstage open bar.
