Aaron Paul sets up Breaking Bad scavenger hunt around Hollywood ahead of Emmys

As a thank you to those who made his AMC show a hit, the actor formerly known as Jesse Pinkman will scatter series scripts, dolls, action figures and posters around LA

To honour the final season of Breaking Bad – and to mark the last award nominations for the series – Aaron Paul will scatter prizes around Hollywood before the Emmys on Monday.


From 11am, Monday 25th August, fans of the show can uncover everything from action figures of meth-making kingpins Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, plus signed scripts, series posters, and art from the show.

“There will be signed Breaking Bad scripts, posters, dolls, action figures and some really cool Breaking Bad art hidden all over the Hollywood area,” said Paul on his Twitter account yesterday.

“Just wanted to do a little something to say ‘Thank You’ to everyone that has supported us thru the years.” Followed, of course, by “#YeahBitch,” and “We couldn’t have done it without you!”

The interactive, city-wide game could be Paul’s last chance to pay homage to the series that made him a household name. But then again, he is quite partial to a good old scavenger hunt, he also created one for the Breaking Bad series final Boise, Idaho. Meeting him and Walter White actor Bryan Cranston was the main prize.

The Emmys mark the final chance for Breaking Bad to win a major award, but it won’t be easy. Stiff competition on Monday includes True Detective in the best drama category, while Bryan Cranston is nominated for outstanding lead actor against Kevin Spacey in House of Cards and Matthew McConaughey in True Detective. Meanwhile, Aaron Paul is nominated for outstanding supporting actor against Peter Dinklage in Game of Thrones and Mandy Patinkin in Homeland. Aaron Paul previously won two Emmys for his role as Jesse in 2010 and 2012.
