Aaron Paul rose to fame as Jesse Pinkman, the young drug dealing partner of Bryan Cranston's Walter White, on "Breaking Bad" (AMC, 2008-13) but found staying power well past that show. Born in Emmett, Idaho, he moved to Los Angeles after graduating high school. He began working as a model and was soon appearing in commercials and music videos. He transitioned to acting with small roles in television shows like "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox, 1990-2000), "Melrose Place" (Fox, 1992-99), and "3rd Rock from the Sun" (NBC, 1996-2001). He added film to his resume with a role opposite James Franco and Shane West in the comedy "Whatever It Takes" (2000). That led to several years spent taking small roles on television and movies. His notable appearances during that time included "K-Pax" (2001), "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2018), "Veronica Mars" (UPN/The CW/Hulu, 2004- ), and "Mission: Impossible III" (2006). His fortunes began to change when he earned a recurring role as Scott Quittman, the love interest of Amanda Seyfried, on the polygamy drama "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-11). His star would soon explode when he joined Cranston for "Breaking Bad." The show became a cultural phenomenon, winning multiple Emmy Awards, including four wins for Paul for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Once "Breaking Bad" ended, he took film roles in a variety of projects such as "Exodus: Gods and Kings" (2014), "Eye in the Sky" (2015) with Helen Mirren, and "Central Intelligence" (2016) with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. A car buff, he had the opportunity to play a street racer in "Need for Speed" (2014). He came back to the small screen to star in "The Path" (Hulu, 2016-18) as Eddie Lane, a follower of a controversial religion who suddenly questions his faith. He also starred with Emily Rarajkowski in the thriller "Welcome Home" (2018) and played a convict on the run in the drama "The Parts You Lose" (2019). In 2019, he returned to playing Jesse Pinkman in "El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie" (Netflix, 2019) providing an answer to what happened to his character after the series ended. He teamed with Octavia Spencer and Lizzy Caplan in the serialized adaptation of Kathleen Barber's best-seller "Truth Be Told" (Apple TV, 2019) as convicted murderer Warren Cave. Paul then joined the cast of the hit drama "Westworld" (HBO, 2016- ) in the show's third season as a construction worker who Evan Rachel Wood's android, Delores, meets when she enters the "real world."
