Note to Aaron Paul: You don’t want to mess with Donna Martin.
Nowadays, Aaron Paul may be best-known for his Emmy-winning work as Jesse “yo b****” Pinkman on Breaking Bad. But in the mid-’90s he was just another cute high school kid whose big break — and first on-screen kiss — came from dropping by Beverly Hills, 90210 for a brief part as a truly cringe-worthy Romeo in West Beverly Hills High’s production of Romeo and Juliet. Come for the atrociously over-the-top line delivery, stay for Donna Martin’s (Tori Spelling) small smile offstage.
To quote a shocked Paul after seeing the clip on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, “That was awful.” We’re pretty sure he meant amazing. Check it out below:
If he’s embarrassed by this, wait until he relives his appearance on The Price Is Right.
