10 Worst Debut Movie Roles of Hollywood Stars

AMC Celebrates The Final Episodes Of "Breaking Bad" - Arrivals

Aaron Paul—Beverly Hills 90210

Aaron Paul is one of the best actors on the planet right now, and one of the only people who can truly go toe-to-toe with Bryan Cranston in a scene. However, Paul wasn’t always wowing viewers on Breaking Bad as Jesse Pinkman. Like most young actors, he got his start on a primetime soap—this case being Beverly Hills 90210. In his guest stint, Paul plays Chad, a high school student struggling to capture what the theater director wants out of his performance. For a performer as great as Paul, it’s pretty hilarious that his debut role was him essentially being told that he couldn’t act.
