Aaron Paul dropped by "The Tonight Show" to talk about the upcoming final episodes of "Breaking Bad." But Jay Leno had another plan up his sleeve. Why not have Aaron Paul re-watch footage of one of his first acting gigs? He got his big break on "Beverly Hills, 90210" in a hilariously awkward kissing scene.
“Won’t thou leave me so unsatisfied?” his character Romeo said in the adaptation of "Romeo & Juliet."
“What satisfaction canst thou have tonight?" the girl replied. And then the two shared a rather short and rather sloppy kiss. As most people are their worst critics, Paul seemed horrified by what he had just seen.
“That was awful," he said. "That was awful. Wow.”
Leno did apologize for airing the vintage video, saying that it probably just cost Paul that Best Supporting Actor Emmy he was up for. But this isn't the first time Leno has gone to the Aaron Paul Vault to embarrass his guest. Last time he was on, Leno showed Paul his first television appearance, when he was an over-excited contestant on "The Price Is Right."
At this rate, Paul may be reluctant to return to "The Tonight Show" before Leno's retirement. Fans will catch him when he returns to his Emmy Award-winning role as Jesse Pinkman for the final episodes of "Breaking Bad," kicking off August 11 on AMC. "The Tonight Show" continues with Jay Leno on weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
