Before 'Need for Speed,' Aaron Paul proved he would do 'Whatever It Takes' to win our hearts

Step aside, Tobey Marshall — Floyd is the Aaron Paul character that revs me up.

Though the Need for Speed star is more famous these days for Breaking out variations on the word “bitch” and playing the Dice Game on The Price Is Right, in my heart he’ll always be the teenage no-goodnik from 2000’s Whatever It Takes.

Michael Keaton on 'Beetlejuice' sequel: 'I would be more than interested' -- VIDEO

No matter where Michael Keaton goes, he’s constantly asked about Beetlejuice and Batman. So it must have been refreshing to appear on this morning’s Today show to promote Need for Speed, his new action movie based on the popular video game. And then Savannah Guthrie asked him about Beetlejuice and Batman, God bless her.

Tim Burton, who directed both 1980s movies, has never hid his enthusiasm for another Beetlejuice, and last fall, he seemed ready to produce or direct a sequel based on a script from screenwriters Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) and David Katzenberg. It’s sad to contemplate a sequel without Keaton as the gonzo poltergeist, but 24 years later, who knew if Keaton was truly game?

Well, turns out he’s game. “I’ve been talking about it for years and saying it’s the one thing — if I ever did anything again, it would be that, or I’d want to do that,” Keaton told Guthrie. “The rumors would — they’ve risen before and fallen away — and now if Tim [Burton] is involved, and I think he might be involved, if Tim would be involved, I would be more than interested.”

From 'Killzone' to 'Resogun': We rank the top new PS4 games

The PlayStation 4 launched last week with 23 titles (including downloadable and free-to-play games), and after putting the system through its paces for a week, it’s clear there’s no killer app that you must play right now.

But for those who are taking the next-gen plunge, there are definitely some solid titles that are well worth your time. Here are our favorite PS4 games available now that should get you through the holidays.

'Breaking Bad' meets 'Need for Speed': Watch the trailer for 'Jesse's Revenge' -- VIDEO

[SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't seen Breaking Bad's series finale, stop reading now.]

There were a lot of takeaways from last night’s series finale of Breaking Bad, one of the big ones being that Jesse got away. Walt took a bullet to save his life, Jesse killed Todd, and then he got in a car and got the hell out of dodge. And considering that Aaron Paul’s next project is the car-racing film Need for Speed, we can appreciate the irony of Jesse’s last moment on screen being behind the wheel of a fast car.

However, some of us appreciate the irony a little more than others, like Slacktory, who took the time to create a movie trailer for a film titled Jesse’s Revenge. A mash-up of Breaking Bad and Need for Speed clips, it looks like Jesse’s revenge involves a lot of death, car crashes, and one make-out session with Skyler, because why not?

The premise is simple: With Brock by his side and the memory of Andrea and Jane in his heart, Jesse is taking out his anger on Walt’s family. As he puts it, “Those who wage war against me shall perish.” The only problem with that line? It doesn’t end with “bitch.”
