It’s difficult to have a TV record as impressive as Aaron Paul’s, who featured in two highly regarded but tone-different sitcoms, Breaking Bad and Bojack Horseman. This year’s appearances in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Black Mirror provided more evidence of the actor’s extraordinary range as an actor.
The bojack horseman Star was more excited to be a part of the later episode because he had been adamant about returning since his brief appearance in the anthology series back in season 4.

Aaron Paul’s obsession with returning to Black Mirror
Aaron Paul collaborated with Charlie Brooker, the creator of Black Mirror, to appear briefly in the season 4 premiere, “USS Callister,” in 2017. The Emmy-winning actor pleaded with the show’s creator to bring him back for more episodes later on because he wasn’t completely satisfied. The actor was sadly unable to return for the fifth season owing to schedule issues, but he didn’t waste the next opportunity that came his way. When he spoke to The Guardian, he said,
“I pleaded with him once again, saying, ‘Please, please keep coming to me.’ When he came to me with this, I seized the opportunity. I thought, “We have to make it happen; whatever we have to do, let’s do it,” as I finished reading the last page.
As a result, Paul was cast as the lead in Black Mirror Season 6 Episode 3, Beyond the Sea. Paul brought his “A” game to the role, and many people thought it was his best work since Breaking Bad.
