Aaron Paul, who was recently spotted alongside his former Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston protesting for better wages for actors revealed he doesn't make any money off the back end of the iconic series.
“We want you to come back to the table with us,” Cranston said in comments addressing the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. “We’re not making them the enemy. They are not villains. These are people that we all will be working with once again at some point. We just want them to see reality.”
“The way things were structured 10 years ago made a lot of sense and it made it more possible for journeymen-type actors, actors in the middle that are working just as a hard or harder,” Plemons said while talking to reporters.
Paul, however, delivered more scathing remarks. The actor, who played Jesse Pinkman on the hit series, blasted the fact that he receives zero residuals for Breaking Bad streaming on Netflix. The show took off like wildfire on the streamer, and according to Paul, he didn’t see a dime, as he revealed in this ET Canada video below.
“I don’t get a piece from Netflix on Breaking Bad to be totally honest and that’s insane to me,” Paul said. “I think a lot of these streamers know that they have been getting away with not paying people a fair wage and now it’s time to pony up.”
These greedy CEOs of studios/streamers will find a way to screw over hard working performers. Pay these actors a living wage.
