‘Breaking Bad’: Aaron Paul surprises fans at marathon to promote season 5

JesseFirst, we had him coming out of his house to actually greet fans on a tour; now, we have Aaron Paul dropping in to give some diehard “Breaking Bad” fans a little bit of love in the midst of what is one of the biggest screenings of the AMC show to date.

Over the past several days, the Film Society of Lincoln Center has been hosting an extensive marathon of all of the show’s episodes, going through a season a day in preparation for the show’s August 11 premiere. The turnout has been high throughout the weekend, with some waiting for hours to get inside and many being turned away due to capacity seating, especially on the early days.

Our eyewitness was lucky enough to be present at the event for much of the past several days, and they tell us that today, the Emmy-nominee Paul stopped in at the start of the season 4 episode “Cornered,” otherwise known as the episode containing the famous Walt line “I am the danger.” He entered the theater through the emergency exit with a cry of “what up b**ches,” hugged a woman in the front row, and then proceeded to chat with the fans for about 15 minutes. He then stayed and watched the episode (our source claims that he was extremely “focused” while doing so) before ultimately bidding adieu.

So yeah, Aaron is apparently one of those actors that is okay watching himself. It’s also incredibly nice that he decided to do something like this for fans that would have just been happy watching “Breaking Bad,” regardless of if there was any guest at all.

We’re going to have much more “Breaking Bad” coverage in the coming months, so stay tuned for more of that. Meanwhile, click here if you want to see some other video highlights featuring Aaron!
