Aaron Paul: ‘Breaking Bad was the best pilot I ever read’

 
Aaron Paul is riding high after winning an Emmy award for his portrayal as Jesse Pinkman in the hit AMC show ‘Breaking Bad’. Paul has a new interview with Manhattan Magazine about Breaking Bad, the initial audition, and how it changed his life.
 
Talking about reading the pilot and going up for it, he says, “I had a pile of pilots; it was the fifth… It was the greatest pilot I’ve ever read.”
 
In terms of the actual testing for the pilot, he said, “This was the studio and network all in one; there were three other guys reading, and Vince [Gilligan, the show’s creator and show runner] thought I was the guy, but AMC and Sony thought I was too clean-cut.”  Eventually, Gilligan and his team fought for Paul as their guy, and the studios agreed in the end.
 
Breaking Bad has gone on to change Paul’s life, and he is now flooded with offers.  In addition to his Emmy win, he has three additional Emmy nominations, and he’s starring in the upcoming ‘Smashed’, which was received at Sundance to great acclaim.
 
Paul also recently talked about ‘really hitting it off’ with Bryan Cranston the first time they met.
