Sundance: Aaron Paul on Why He’ll Never Be the Next Tom Cruise and Resurrecting Jesse Pinkman for AMC

Aaron Paul is not Jesse Pinkman. Thanks to five trailblazing seasons on Breaking Bad, it’s damn near impossible not to think of Paul as anyone else. But as he stressed to Indiewire in Park City, the deeply troubled Pinkman is his “opposite.” The same goes for the alcoholic father he plays in Kat Candler’s scorching directorial debut, HELLION, which premiered in competition here at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival late last week.
