Trivia:

In 2000, the actor appeared on "The Price Is Right" as a contestant -- and he couldn't have been more thrilled. Paul appeared in the Showcase round, but unfortunately overbid by just $132.

In order to afford the move to Los Angeles, Paul worked up to five jobs at a time, including Pizza Hut delivery boy and giant frog mascot for a radio station. After graduating high school, the aspiring actor drove out to LA with a few thousand bucks in his pocket.

His father is a Southern Baptist minister, and he had his introduction to acting through church programs and school plays.

The "Breaking Bad" star was born Aaron Paul Sturtevant in Emmett, Idaho, on August 27, 1979.
