Aaron Paul treaded lightly when it came to reading the final "Breaking Bad" script.
"It was sitting in my place for probably three or four days," he said Wednesday during a live Web chat with The Times. "I just kept staring at it because, you know, once you read it, that's it. There's no more to read."
Paul, who stars in AMC's hit dark drama as Jesse Pinkman, the punk drug dealer with a conscience, knew turning the pages was an inevitable task. And it was one he took on with his partner-in-crime, Bryan Cranston, the man who knocks as chemistry teacher-turned-meth lord Walter White (a.k.a. Heisenberg).
The two read the final script at Cranston's home, which was filmed for a documentary that will be included when the box set of the series is released.
