Aaron Paul        

Actor Known for "Breaking Bad" & "The Path"

Aaron Paul's first screen appearances were supporting roles on series like "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Melrose Place." Meanwhile, his feature debut came with the harmless teen comedy "Whatever It Takes," which was quickly followed by supporting turns in "K-PAX" as Jeff Bridges' estranged son and "Van Wilder" in 2002. Perhaps the most significant of these early jobs was playing Sky Commander Winky on an episode of "The X-Files"; the character was named after series writer and producer Vince Gilligan, who later recalled Paul when casting for his series "Breaking Bad."

By 2002, he had logged screen time on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "ER" and "Veronica Mars." Film appearances were still relatively few and far between, though he did enjoy a rare lead in "Candy Paint." In 2006, Paul logged several episodes of television and appearing opposite Tom Cruise in "Mission: Impossible III." The following year, however, was a major breakthrough for the actor when he was cast as Scott, the upstanding and responsible fiancé of Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) on "Big Love."

Scott stood at the polar opposite from Paul's next and most acclaimed character to date, Jesse Bruce Pinkman on "Breaking Bad." The son of an upper-middle class family who cast him out for his rampant drug use, he partners with his former high school chemistry teacher (Bryan Cranston), whose terminal cancer has forced him to deal crystal meth to support his family. Widely praised for his edgy, often fearless turn in the role, Paul received Emmy nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2009 and 2010; winning in the latter year.

Meanwhile, his film and television career continued to build, thanks to a supporting turn as the youngest member of a gang of sadistic criminals targeted by the parents of a girl they murdered in the remake of Wes Craven's "Last House on the Left." In 2012, Paul repeated his feat from two years previously and won his second Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor for playing the ever-increasingly sympathetic Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad." Since the end of "Breaking Bad" in 2013, Paul was cast as the lead in Hulu's new series, "The Path." The show follows a family at the center of a controversial cult movement as they struggle with relationships, faith, and power.
