We’ve seen him as a fresh-faced rascal jonesing for Corn Pops and as an enthusiastic young man freaking out on The Price Is Right, and now we can watch Aaron Paul transform into the role that won him two Emmys.

Seeing it’s a Sunday, we’re bringing you a blast from the past and looking back at the actor’s audition tape for his famous role on Breaking Bad. Reading as Jesse Pinkman, a meth-maker who eventually teams up with Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White on the AMC series, Paul flubs his lines in one of the show’s most famous conversations during the reel.

Fortunately, we all know how this story ends. (Spoiler alert: he got the part.)
