Actor Aaron Paul skyrocketed to fame with the surprise success of Breaking Bad. Most know him as Jesse Pinkman, his meth-dealing character in the show, but soon you will know him as Tobey Marshall, the protagonist in the upcoming Need for Speed movie.
Paul is promoting the new movie, and there is no better way to do it then to appeal to thousands of car enthusiasts all at once by appearing on Top Gear as their Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. As you may know, this involves setting a hot lap around the Top Gear Test Track in the reasonably priced Vauxhall Astra hatchback.
The Breaking Bad star must have found tossing the Astra through the corners to be relatively easy, considering he was recently driving million dollar supercars on the set of Need for Speed. He posted the fastest lap time in the Astra yet, a 1:44.7. Check out the video below for a behind the scenes look at the record lap and a short interview with Pinkman himself.
