“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul is going to be looking for work soon. Fortunately for him he will not spend much time waiting in the unemployment line. Paul has the potential to make his presence known elsewhere on television. These are five shows he should guest star on.
1) “American Horror Story”
The terrifying “American Horror Story” could use Aaron Paul as a special guest. The show’s forever-changing themes and cast make it possible for Paul to fit in as anything from a disturbed mental patient to a blood-thirsty vampire. His role all depends on what direction the show goes in. Whatever it is, Paul can probably handle it.
2) “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”
The beauty of “Breaking Bad” is as dramatic and tense as it can be, the show also proves the actors have comedic timing. It is clear Aaron Paul could be a great guest star on one of television’s best comedies, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Paul could play anything from a love interest of Dee, a troubled cousin of Charlie, or a meth dealer. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is a very pop culture-aware show. Having Paul play a similar character to Jesse Pinkman could work well in a comedy format.
3) “Boardwalk Empire”
Aaron Paul has one of those faces and bodies that fit the “Boardwalk Empire” era. Although an attractive man, Paul is not built like many of today’s wide-shouldered Hollywood heartthrobs. “Boardwalk Empire” already has the same dramatic feel as “Breaking Bad,” making this a smooth transition for the actor who brought Jesse Pinkman to life. He’s dealt with the Mexican cartel. Let’s see him deal with the mafia.
“Community” has seen its ups and downs. A guest appearance by Aaron Paul would certainly be an up. Paul could fit perfectly into the cast as a fellow Greendale student, possibly even the center of Dean Pelton’s affection leading to a surprisingly jealous Jeff Winger. “Community” has already had Michael K. Williams guest star as a teacher. If Omar from “The Wire” can fit in on “Community,” so can Jesse from “Breaking Bad.”
5) “Curb Your Enthusiasm”
There is no better show on television for someone to guest star than “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” A possible rivalry with Larry David and Paul could be great. I see a situation where Larry David becomes jealous of Aaron Paul’s popularity at a celebrity function, insisting that he has never heard of the actor. Now if we could only get Larry David to make a ninth season.
