aaron paulThe cast of director Ridley Scott's biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is not what you would imagine at all; in order to bring the tale of the exodus of the Jews out of Egypt, Scott assembled a multi-cultural brigade of top-tier talent. British thespian Christian Bale plays Moses, Australian actor Joel Edgerton plays the pharaoh, Rhamses, and the very American actor formerly known as Jesse Pinkman, Aaron Paul, essays Joshua.

In "Exodus: Gods and Kings," Joshua is something of a reactionary character, taking in Moses's campaign and helping him wherever he can. Paul has only a handful of lines as the character, but he totally make it his own. And talking with Paul in Paris, he talked about his deep connection to the material and the stuff that he wishes Scott would reinstate in the much longer director's cut (hey, we all know it's coming).

And, yes, we do talk a little bit about life after "Breaking Bad" -- and whether or not he'd return to the Albuquerque, New Mexico set of the prequel series "Better Call Saul." It should also be noted that he is a super nice guy, which is always exciting. Paul clearly is enthusiastic about the material and it's positively infectious. So sit back and watch him go.
