Breaking Bad is still being hailed as the great American tragedy of Shakespearean proportions that it is a full week after the series wrapped. So naturally, the series’ stars have had to sign a few autographs. But on chemistry lab equipment? That’s a new one.
Aaron Paul, who played Walter White’s right-hand man Jesse Pinkman in the celebrated AMC drama, was stopped by a few fans at LAX recently and asked to lend his John Hancock to a pair of “meth beakers” as TMZ labeled them.
The gossip rag also had the opportunity to catch up some with Paul, and asked for his opinion on the Walter White obituary that ran in the Albuquerque Journal last week.
Paul said that he actually felt bad about the obit… not because it settled the reality of the series’ end for him, but because it might have spoiled the ending for people who hadn’t yet seen the epic finale.
As far as Paul’s life post-Breaking Bad is concerned, the 34-year-old actor has five films lined up for 2014. He’s currently filming Exodus, A biblical epic starring Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton as Ramesses II, and Paul as Joshua.
Principal photography began this month in Spain.
Paul also recently cleansed his moral palate with a push for the Kind Campaign, an anti-bullying non-profit. He and his wife managed to raise $1.8 million for the charity with a contest that earned its winners a trip to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a screening of the Breaking Bad finale.
