LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - For actor Aaron Paul, life after Breaking Bad has brought him more of the dark, broken characters that he became known for playing, most notably as the meth-dealing Jesse Pinkman on the gritty AMC drug drama.

Paul, 34, won two Emmy awards for playing drug-addled teen Jesse, a role that earned him a cult fan base.

In Hellion, Paul plays Hollis, an alcoholic single father who struggles to connect with his two young sons, causing his eldest, 13-year-old Jacob, to rebel while his youngest is taken away by child welfare services.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and will be out in US theatres on Friday.
