I apologize in advance because I’m about to ask you to watch a clip from Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show.” However, for whatever reason, Leno has had a nice history of unearthing the early works of Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul. You may recall that the last time Paul was on “The Tonight Show,” Leno dragged out some footage of Aaron Paul’s long-ago appearance on “The Price is Right,” where Paul absolutely freaked out after his name was called.
Here, Leno drags out what was Paul’s first appearance on a television show. It’s from the original “Beverly Hills 90210,” and Aaron plays Romeo in a “Romeo and Juliet” scene. Also, Paul is not wrong about his performance. It is “awful.”
