NEW YORK (AP) - Anticipation over Sunday's finale of "Breaking Bad" has allowed "Saturday Night Live" to have some fun, with some help from Aaron Paul in a surprise cameo.
Paul, who plays Walter White's drug compatriot Jesse Pinkman in the AMC series, appeared in the opening segment of the new "Saturday Night Live" season. He played one of several "average Americans" joining President Obama to testify to the need for health coverage.
Paul mentioned a "friend" whose need to pay for health care led him to cooking meth.
When Paul said, "you don't want to know what happened to my friend?" Obama's character and the audience hushed him.
