It’s crazy to me how Aaron Paul didn’t have any acting lessons before Breaking Bad, it just demonstrates the passion and talent he has for acting!

Another master stroke from Vince! Bravissimo!


Powerful_Fly_8387

He’s in an episode of Veronica Mars from 2004 where he plays an accused predator and he basically curls up in a corner and whimpers for the whole thing. He has always been good at going to a dark place.


NoodelPoodel

HE DIDN'T? i am actually amazed now.


CMelody

That isn’t exactly true. He took drama in high school and credits his teacher for encouraging him to pursue his dream. He graduated early and moved to LA when he was only 17. He has said in interviews that he thanks his high school drama teacher every time he sees her when he goes back to see family in Idaho.


Bud90

Wasn't he in Big Love?


nobody_nearby08

Aaron Paul is so unfathomably good at portraying Jesse that I genuinely struggle to see him as a real person and not just a character. It's unreal.


rockstarrzz

Also just with his other roles, I'm not sure if I ever got through an episode of Bojack Horseman without hearing Jesse's voice.


Samford_

that's weird, its actually the opposite for me. for the first seasons of bojack, i had no idea it was aaron paul, it was only until i looked it up. to me, that really shows how amazing aaron paul is


rockstarrzz

It was impossible to ignore for me, Bojack released shortly after Breaking Bad finished and one of the main selling points was Aaron Paul, but regardless I think I would have realised it was him almost insantly (partly because Todd looks alot like early seasons Jesse.)


callam461

Lke the other commetr I had the opposite experience. I didn't realise it was him for months until someone pointed it out to me. Now I can't unhear him. It's like when you find out that all these really emotional characters you love are voiced by Mr Krabs and then you can't unhear it.


StabnShoot

Are you talking about the DCAU Lex Luthor?


callam461

The first one I think of is always the Detective from Detroit Become Human, but that's a great example tbh. I got reccomeded a clip of batman interrogating Lex Luthor the other day and it had Mr Krabs in it.


StabnShoot

Clancy Brown has some real range.


UkuleleAversion

Crazy how he was in one of the best TV shows of the 2000s (Breaking Bad) then again in 2010s (BoJack Horseman).


rockstarrzz

Aaron Paul certainly knows how to pick 'em, wonder what masterpiece he'll be a big part of this decade!


UPBOAT_FORTRESS_2

He's in this latest season of Westworld and I'll be damned if any of my friends or I ever called him by his actual name instead of Jesse


neversaynotobacta

His wife probably told him “Jesse we have to cook” during thanksgiving prep

APigsty

Granite State is the most underrated episode in my opinion. Since it’s bordered by FeLiNa and Ozymandias it’s hard to not overlook it, but it’s still a fantastic episode.


Banana_Shaped

You’re totally right, Granite State is easily one of my favorite episodes in the series. And it has one of if not my favorite scene from the show, where Walt leaves the bar and the theme plays as the cops get there. I’m not a Walt fanboy by any means but that scene is so fucking badass.


Poker36336

While we’re on the topic, I absolutely love the depiction of Walt’s reaction to that interview. The one expression where he looks forward and the melody kicks in is easily my favorite moment in Breaking Bad. It’s like you can tangibly see the gears turning in his head, and the overwhelming mix of emotions he feels. Bryan Cranston is truly a master of subtle acting.


Ordinary-Picture4367

I loved the scene but I was confused if gretchen and elliot actually wronged him. Didn't he leave grey matter of his own accord


YogurtclosetKey7337

They downplayed his contributions


HOWDEHPARDNER

I think it's implied they exploited him and this is confirmed in Better Call Saul.


brodo-swaggins-

Nah he just avoids telling Saul that he was an insecure manbaby and that’s why he left


Ordinary-Picture4367

That why I'm confused. We mostly hear from walt what happened but when he meets with gretchen she sees it happened differently to what he described


HOWDEHPARDNER

True. I wouldn't be suprised if it all comes down to Walt's pride and ego. Maybe it's pruposefully ambiguous.


APigsty

For real. I know it didn’t fit the tone at all, but I really wish either Point and Shoot or Waterworks had a scene like that.


zumabbar

yeah, P&S and WW were all-downhill episodes for Jimmy and Kim. they could've done it on Saul Gone between the plane and courtroom scenes, but it would've taken away the surprise element from Jimmy's confession.


Wyredpizza

The scene where Waltuh calls Flynn is genuinely one of my favourites in the show


BjornLakenstrazen

The extended theme song at the end is so epic for some reason


NamarJackson

I can’t even put into words what I felt when I saw this. It was like watching a real person die, and I was completely helpless. Incredible acting, especially from Aaron Paul.

catdog918

Truly a great scene. He conveys the pain so strongly that it actually made me feel his pain.


iGirthy

Very haunting scene. I couldn’t sleep the night I watched this one, gotta give credit to the beautiful writing. What I’d give to watch it for the first time again..


Background_Power_843

Aaron Paul should’ve won an Emmy…or 5! Unparalleled desperation the likes of which only he could pull off. He truly is the foil to Todd’s “Opie” dead eyes and soullessness. The pathos shines through brilliantly. Add it to the reel, Mr. Paul.


le_dankest_memez

I can barely handle watching this scene. It's just so horrible. Andrea did absolutely nothing wrong and she dies for Jesse's actions. Brock's life will be entirely fucked up for something that was never his fault. and Jesse's reaction feels too real. I feel like I'm watching a snuff film.


zoltan_of_rock

Part of the reason I love this scene is the immediate cut into this one from the previous scene. Jesse went from an animal showing it’s teeth saying “… there’s no way I’m doing one more cook for you PSYCHO FUCKS!” To a whimper as he was helpless to prevent Andrea’s death, while knowing that her death was a direct result of his actions.

I can't watch this scene without laughing, even the first time I watched it, it was so funny so Jesse in that much anguish over Andrea.


armageddonsundays

This scene broke me, his acting is so good, Jesse feels like a real a person and not just a character


-Memoria-

Incredible moment. It was so fast and sudden like a far more realistic death than the one portrayed in many other peices of media. Everytime I think of the show I think of this. Walt got what he deserved, and Jesse made it out and yet Andrea died. Makes me upset everytime


fatherjoseph11

Sometimes I forget that it’s not real and actually all acting, he’s that good.


NipponSteelPrevails

Granite state for me is an episode that showcases what shock value is supposed to mean when it's quality made. Raw and gut-wrenching not cheap and hollow.


f0rtinh0

Bravo Aaron


Lil_iBrow

I’ve heard that Jesse Plemons actually shot Emily Rios, and Aaron Paul’s reaction is genuine


MathMuhChicken

I straight up didn’t even expect this to happen until it actually happened - honestly I think that’s what makes this such a difficult scene to sit through, that and at this point Jesse knew Walt let Jane die 😳


NeganLannister23

Great job Aaron https://i.redd.it/efgcs59ie42a1.gif


ranch_brotendo

This scene was truly disturbing- the raw anger and sadness that Aaron displayed along with the cold apathetic nature of Todd and the Nazis truly emphasised the hellish situation Jesse was in.

AlexanderRodriguezII

It's genuinely very impressive how much Paul's acting improved over the course of the show. I'm not saying his initial portrayal of Jesse was bad, just that it was very one dimensional and lacked much emotional depth. By the last couple of seasons though it became clear that Paul was a more experienced actor, and like you say he is able to convey so much more emotion and he seems so much realer as the show progresses.

Forward-Yak-5398

Out of all the terrible things that happen throughout Breaking Bad, this is the only scene I actually have visceral trouble watching to the point where I skip it. Aaron is just wayyy too good and I also feel really bad about Andrea's overall fate and Brock being made an orphan out of nowhere. The scene is just too much.


CheekyGruffFaddler

this whole scene felt a bit forced. typical aaron paul, always over acting in every single scenes
