One of Paul’s first big acting roles was the recurring character, Scott Quittman on HBO’s Big Love, with 14 appearances, starting in 2007 and last on the show until 2011. His breakout role, however, was crystal meth dealer Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad. Originally, the character was meant to have been killed off during the first season, but the character and Paul’s performance were popular enough to keep him on the show for five seasons. The character’s popularity helped Paul win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series three years in a row, in 2010, 2012 and 2014, making him the first actor to win three times since drama and comedy were given separate awards. Paul also cameoed as Pinkman during a couch gag on an episode of The Simpsons, “What Animated Women Want.”
In 2014, he joined the voice acting world, playing Todd Chavez on the Netflix cartoon, Bojack Horseman, on which he also served as an executive producer. In 2016, he took on a starring role in the Hulu series, The Path. He also had upcoming film roles in The Burning Woman and The Parts You Lose.
