Six years after the last episode of “Breaking Bad” aired, and after struggling to make the transition from TV icon to movie star, Aaron Paul will return to his star-making role this fall in Netflix’s “Breaking Bad” movie, “El Camino.”

At the height of ‘Breaking Bad,’ he was being offered everything.
Lead part in the race-car drama “Need For Speed” and in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings,”
Both flopped with critics and audiences.

One commercial film that’s not the success they think it’s going to be, and the actor is damned.

He had a few missed opportunities, including one “monster, monster hit” that is too painful to name.

He’ll next be seen in another small screen hit, he joins the cast of HBO’s “Westworld” for its 3rd season.
