I attended the press day for Aaron Paul’s new movie Need for Speed, which is based on the 1994 popular car-racing video-game franchise, that was published in 22 languages in 60 countries, raking in sales of more than $4 billion.

In the movie, Paul portrays Tobey Marshall, who runs his family’s auto shop and races the underground street circuit with his buddies on weekends. All the car races, which are spectacular,  were executed without the use of any CGI. More about the movie, which premieres on March 14th, soon.

Aaron shot the last episode of his critically acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad during the filming of Need for Speed. I asked him if his other cast members tried to get him to tell them what happened in the finale? I also mention an interview I read with Vince Gilligan, who created the series, where he said Paul’s character, Jesse Pinkman, wouldn’t last on the streets long before being picked up by the police. I asked him if he agreed? This led to other questions about the series – play the video here to see his answers.
