Aaron Paul steps into his first big role since "Breaking Bad" went off the air with "Need for Speed."
The actor plays Tobey Marshall in the film, which is based on a popular video game series of the same name. Tobey sets out to get revenge on rival street racer Dino (Dominic Cooper) who caused the death of his friend and set Tobey up to take the fall for manslaughter, which caused him to spend two years in prison.
Paul recently talked to OTRC.com about the movie, filming the racing scenes, prepping for the role and his own experience on the role.
Check out three highlights from Paul's interview below and watch Paul's interview above.
1. All the racing stunts are "very real," no CGI involved, according to the actor.
On filming the movie Paul said, "To shoot one racing sequence it sometimes would take, you know, six to 10 days, but it was a blast."
"For me personally, I never felt I was in danger, but when they were doing some of the serious stunts, you know, my heart started beating much faster for the stuntmen and obviously, they take it so seriously and they prep for some of these stunts for months ahead of time," Paul added. "It's really cool to witness, to be a part of 'cause there was no CGI. All the stunts actually happened. It was very real. It was great."
2. Paul worked on putting a little "danger" in his voice.
"I always try with different roles I always just try and change up my voice a little bit," Paul said.
He later added, "I wanted my voice to have danger... I don't know what it was, just like the quiet confidence. The danger."
3. The actor's first car was a 1982 Toyota Corolla.
When asked what it was like the first time he tried to get his license, Paul said, "It was so exciting. Just the idea of having my own car, which was an '82 Toyota Corolla and it was just so beat up, but I loved that car so much."
