Top Gear has tested hundreds of celebrities on their very own test track in their Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment. Sunday, Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman, Aaron Paul was the latest to be interviewed by Jeremy Clarkson during the segment that has been part of the hijinks of Top Gear since 2002. Normally guests are high profile, or British celebrities, but in the case of Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad hasn't even been broadcasted in the UK, nor is his new movie Need for Speed, a film adaption of the popular video game series, even out yet.
After talking about how Walter White’s own Pontiac Aztec is a car that just screams that something has gone wrong in your life, and Aaron Paul mentioning how he wanted to keep Jesse’s red Toyota Tercel wagon, we finally saw him behind the wheel of the reasonably priced Vauxhall Astra. His main goal was not to be last, and even though one turn made him say his character’s catch phrase under his breath, with the time of 1.44.7, Aaron Paul is now the fastest Star around the Top Gear Test Track.
