Bryan Cranston’s Favorite Breaking Bad Prank Was Tricking Aaron Paul into Thinking Jesse Would Die
There were 270 deaths on Breaking Bad. For only five seasons that’s… a lot of deaths. And you can be sure that no one was safe—not even its main stars. The cast had a 10 year reunion at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, where Aaron Paul revealed how Bryan Cranston would terrorize him with his anxieties about his character getting killed off. You see, Jesse Pinkman was supposed to be killed in Season One, but creator Vince Gilligan liked Paul’s performance so much he kept him around. And Gilligan told Paul that after season one, thinking it would give him confidence, but it really just made the actor worried that his character was expendable, as they revealed at the panel yesterday.
Of course, Cranston used this fear to torment poor Paul on set, as Vulture reports:
“[Cranston] came up to me the first time he did it, and he just gives me a really long, exaggerated hug,” Paul explained. “I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And he goes, ‘Hey man. It’s been a fun ride. You read the script right?’ And then he just walks away! I run into the production office and I’m like, ‘Where’s the script?’ He’s like, ‘It’s not available yet.’ I’m like, ‘No, please God tell me!’ And I read it and I was alive still.” But Cranston apparently wasn’t done exploiting Paul’s paranoia just yet. “Then there was another time where they did a fitting and they were like, ‘We need to measure you for the coffin.’ And he’s like, ‘Oh! You don’t know yet! Oh, man!’” At which point Cranston threw his hands up and chimed in with, “Forget I said that! You’re getting cremated. Don’t worry about it.”
Cranston wasn’t the only evil one on set though! During the panel, Gilligan revealed that he really wanted to kill off poor, sweet Walt Jr. in a very brutal way.
“Early on, I pitched to my writers, I had this idea where Walter Jr. gets killed by this nasty guy that Walt is somehow in business with,” he explained. “And all my writers looked at me like I had completely lost my mind and was the most horrible person to ever live.”
So, that’s where he would cross the line with deaths? Anyway, in the end, the joke was on Cranston: Both Walt Jr. and Jesse survived the series. We can’t say the same about Walt…
