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!
You forgot about this
What a handsome lad
he didn’t even know he was acting they just made that shit happen around him and recorded it
The Pinkman Show
It's just a prank bro.
Another master stroke from Vince!
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.
HE DIDN'T? i am actually amazed now.
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.
Wasn't he in Big Love?
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.
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.
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
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.)
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.
Are you talking about the DCAU Lex Luthor?
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.
Clancy Brown has some real range.
Crazy how he was in one of the best TV shows of the 2000s (Breaking Bad) then again in 2010s (BoJack Horseman).
Aaron Paul certainly knows how to pick 'em, wonder what masterpiece he'll be a big part of this decade!
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
His wife probably told him “Jesse we have to cook” during thanksgiving prep
w-what's happening? I was gone from r/okbuddychicanery for a week and now there's unironic posts. Am I having a stroke?
What do you mean? This sub has always been unironically about the greatness of the shows. What is chicanery? We are here for serious discussions only. *tips fedora*
The chicanery is transferring to r/bettercallsaul
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.
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.
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.
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
They downplayed his contributions
I think it's implied they exploited him and this is confirmed in Better Call Saul.
Nah he just avoids telling Saul that he was an insecure manbaby and that’s why he left
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
True. I wouldn't be suprised if it all comes down to Walt's pride and ego. Maybe it's pruposefully ambiguous.
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.
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.
The scene where Waltuh calls Flynn is genuinely one of my favourites in the show
The extended theme song at the end is so epic for some reason
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.
That’s what I’m saying dawg
/uc Your flair made me laugh for a solid 20 seconds, and I had to explain why I was laughing to the people I’m hanging out with. Fuck you for that
/c bravo vince, truly amazing storytelling
what do you mean """/uc""", this is a serious subreddit discussing the hit television shows Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul
I'm sorry but your chicanery is in another castle
wtf r u talking about
It was one of the most sorrowful moments in the whole show, it and felina show the kind of world that is created by blood for blood, forgiveness is impossible, revenge therefore becomes the only path forward
Sangre por Sangre
The comments are too normal i'm scared
...there it is...
Again, that funny feeling
the French champagne
help I don't get any of these
I keep expecting to see Bob Odencock in all His glory
I saw this post before I saw the mod post and was just convinced this was some elaborate setup that I didn't get
Maybe chicanery is a flat circle
[What do you mean, this is a sub for serious and valuable discussions around the shows Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. What else would be discussed here?](https://www.reddit.com/r/okbuddychicanery/comments/z3v22j/hot_take_but_i_think_its_genius/)
Insane acting from him. The scene felt unreal, like it was a really tough decision in the writers room. So seeing Jesse cry with his entire heart really did feel perfect. Aaron Paul is a fucking splendid actor
Man I'm so confused with this sub lol
I legitimately thought this post was gonna be a BDSM joke lmfao
😍 I can't believe I got to see him with a gag on 😍
Truly brilliant acting and directing granite state is undeniably one of the best episodes in the entire show
Truly a great scene. He conveys the pain so strongly that it actually made me feel his pain.
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..
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.
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.
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’m going insane. Bring the Chicanary back for Christ sake! I can’t take these normal conversations anymore
Sorry. You’ll need to go to r/bettercallsaul for your chicanery fix now
is this a sopranos reference?
People who drop into this sub tmrw are gonna feel so gaslighted
i think jesse overreacted here tbh
My reaction to that information
What the fuck am I looking at
The last chicanery before I disappear
Same the first 4 or 5 were fun but my brain rot is now healing and I don’t like being able to think critically
It’s alright here’s a photo of Cliff Main absolutely killing it. This always calms me down
When Jimmy is sus
Wait these aren’t sarcastic?
Aaron Paul’s acting is perfect
Mistah White with no skyler, holly or breakfast muncher
My heart dropped when this scene happened. It shows just how life has no value to people like Todd. and really, how evil his family is to raise him to be so careless about human life. I could feel the pain in Jesse's voice. Aaron Paul is truly an amazing actor.
You didn’t /uc so I’m required to do this
Aaron Paul's acting was so fucking good, especially since he didn't take any acting classes before the show
Oh we're actually doing this
yup, this scene was one of the hardest to watch imo
Ita genuinly one of the hardest things ive ever had to watch in television
what is this? whats happening
Bro wtf this ain’t r/breakingbad , where are the Odencocks and Waltuhs
Finger?Waltuh?Odencock?Never heard of them…….
Anti gun guy watching the home invader give his wife her first orgasm.
The most haunting scene in the entire saga
I agree. It’s hard to watch every time.
Are we behaving like a normal sub as a way to subvert expectation? Sorry I haven't been here in a while, this post caught me off guard.
Are we a serious sub now
I can’t tell if we’re supposed to be irony posting or having a serious conversation.
Really acting his cute little heinie off!!!
Am I the only one confused by these serious posts?
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.
This scene broke me, his acting is so good, Jesse feels like a real a person and not just a character
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
Sometimes I forget that it’s not real and actually all acting, he’s that good.
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.
I’ve heard that Jesse Plemons actually shot Emily Rios, and Aaron Paul’s reaction is genuine
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 😳
Great job Aaron
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.
jesse is just an amazing character overall. season 2 and 3 have some of my favorite emotional scenes from aaron paul
Why is this post normal?
Even the writers who were planning to kill Jesse off decided against it and he made it till Season 6. Just imagine that.
Loved this episode, really makes you feel like Jesse.
I thought it was good but he was being a bit too much of a pussy for my taste
So we really doing this huh
Bro think this r/breakingbad 💀
/uc for a moment, this show fucking sucks
/uc is this a show? I thought it was some stupid ass anime with hyper-realistic art style
I look away from this sub and then somehow it's become r/bettercallsaul like there's another layer of chicanery added everyday
Don’t worry guys, this sub is just having one of those brief lucidity periods, the Alzheimer’s will kick in again soon.
Probably the funniest moment in either show, bravo Vince.
Dude that's so uncalled for we're trying to discuss this passionate, tragic moment
Sorry, apparently this stopped being a shitpost sub overnight and I wasn't told
It's not your fault, Vince was the one who put a laugh track over that part. That was the only moment in the entire show he added one so idk what else we're supposed to do other than laugh.
Does nobody else think Jesse kinda overreacted here?
Total Whiney baby
"FINGER WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT LET WALTUH PUT HIS DICK OUT!"
r/bettercallsaul users trying not to troll outside of their own sub (IMPOSSIBLE)
You sussy baka!
Yes it was very emotional
Is he peeing here
I'd to look 10 times at that photo to find the chicanery
...(I found nothing)
Wait.. hold on
Did I miss something? I can't find the joke
/uc look at pinned post, this is a serious sub now until we decide its lame and then go back to the “at what point in the series did you realize Kim Jong Un was the bad guy?”
UC/got it (noticed how I didn't rc/ myself)
I just wonder how Aaron was able to work himself up to this emotional state. Phenomenal work and he really sells it so well
Yeah. This is pure emotion. It could very well be cinematic perfection. And the scene where he escapes with the car :')
Such an amazing performance, bravo to Aaron Paul for his incredible acting in his first major role 👏 🙌
What is up with these normal conversations
Chicanery so crazy we're just straight up talking about how great the show is now. For real, Aaron Paul is one of the great actors of the 21st century.
I can’t even put into words what I felt when I saw this. It was like watching a real person act, and I was completely helpless. Incredible dying, especially from Aaron Paul.
Aaron Paul is such an outstanding actor! Vince Gilligan spared no expense! He cast amazing actors for EVERY character, even ones that were only supposed to show up for a single scene like Mike.
for me, it was when jane died. the “i loved her more than anything” really hit me and made me cry like a baby
Is everyone being ironic here I can’t tell lol
I find funny that jessie is ment to be a methead despite still having the shiny white teeth
Kid named Bob
/uc is the joke now that we're just normally praising brba and bcs? Because if it is it's the best joke so far, I've checked the subreddit multiple times to see where i am
/rc yeah jesse is just phenomenal, there's a really good video on how Aaron Paul does such an amazing job portraying the emotions of his character.
Had to double-check whether y'all were on /uc or not.
what is happening
He is arguably the most successful Paul Brother
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.
shut the fuck up post odencock
r/bettercallsaul is leaking
Even when it is used in meme videos I still get shivers.
One of the most impactful scenes in BB for sure.
why is there a lack of dumb jokes here
We were able to to a million mile run and we’ve reached the limits of humor known to humans
Ultimate chicanery is to just become r/bettercallsaul
Stop it. You guys are being too normal.
Yeah the acting was so good because they actually shot his girlfriend at the time
The portrayal is fantastic, and the level of detail in the scars and cuts really ties it together. He just looks so defeated and tired.
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.
this whole scene felt a bit forced. typical aaron paul, always over acting in every single scenes
