Aaron Paul Announces 'Breaking Bad' Emmys Scavenger Hunt
Aaron Paul is at it again.
The actor announced on Instagram that he is hosting another scavenger hunt on Monday, in honor of the show's final shot at winning Emmy Awards. He promises, "There will be signed Breaking Bad scripts, posters, dolls, action figures and some really cool Breaking Bad art hidden all over the Hollywood area." He later tweeted that the fun would begin at 11 a.m.
The AMC critical darling nabbed a nomination for best drama series, and Paul, Bryan Cranston and Anna Gunn are also acknowledged in their acting categories.
"Just wanted to do a little something to say 'Thank You' to everyone that has supported us thru the years," he also said, posting the announcement with a #YeahBitch hashtag. "We couldn't have done it without you!"
The actor, who won the Emmy in 2010 and 2012 for playing Jesse Pinkman on the beloved meth-cooking series, is known for his Hollywood run-arounds with fans, tweeting out the locations of items just after hiding them. While filming the show, he often engaged in spontaneous Q&A sessions with viewers over social media, and even shared the phone number of the on-set pay phone to chat with fans.
Paul also helped raise $1.8 million for wife Lauren Parsekian's anti-bullying nonprofit, The Kind Campaign, by giving donors to his Omaze.com contest the opportunity to win a trip as his personal guest to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery screening of the series finale.

Thursday: 8:02 p.m.: Updated with the time the scavenger hunt begins.
