Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad has cameo on Saturday Night Live
NEW YORK (AP) - Saturday Night Live had some fun with anticipation over Sunday's Breaking Bad series finale with help from Aaron Paul in a surprise cameo.
Paul, who plays Walter White's drug compatriot Jesse Pinkman in the Emmy-winning AMC cable TV series, appeared in the opening segment of the new SNL season. He portrayed one of several average Americans joining President Barack Obama to testify to the need for health care coverage.
Paul mentioned a "friend" who badly needed health care when he got sick with cancer. "The man was a teacher with a family," interjected Obama, played by SNL cast member Jay Pharoah.
"He did what any of us would have done," Paul said. "He started cooking meth. And soon it wasn't just meth, it was murder. And not regular murder, he blew half a guy's face off." Not pleased with the example, Obama sought to usher him off the stage.
