'The Tonight Show': Aaron Paul Sees Footage Of Himself 14 Years Ago On 'The Price Is Right'

Jay Leno must have a team of people with one primary objective: find early footage of his celebrity guests that he can surprise them with. It's become almost a tradition of "The Tonight Show" (Weeknights, 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC), though nobody told "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul.

The Emmy nominee had no idea what was coming when Leno started asking him about his early days in Los Angeles. When Leno brought up his reported appearance as a contestant on "The Price Is Right" 14 years ago, Paul admitted he hadn't seen that footage probably since it first aired.

Until now.

The much-younger Aaron Paul in the video was clearly very excited to be on the show, telling then-host Bob Barker that he was his idol.

"I literally had six cans of Red Bull," Paul said of his younger self. "Obviously."

Aaron Paul can be seen on "Breaking Bad" every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on AMC, while "The Tonight Show" continues scouring for old footage every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser.
