(MENAFN -Arab News) los angeles: fresh from the success of ?breaking bad,? aaron paul has plunged into a very different role in high-octane action movie ?need for speed,? swapping crystal meth for straight adrenaline

Adapted from the video game of the same name, the film is paul's first since he shot to stardom alongside bryan cranston in the hit tv show about a chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin

?i literally started this film the day after i wrapped ?breaking bad,'? paul ? who played jesse pinkman alongside cranston's walter white for five seasons ? said before the movie's us release friday

?they had a charter plane waiting for me, i got on the plane, flew to mendocino and i started at 6:30 in the morning the next day,? added the 34-year-old

Paul already had a long list of big-screen supporting role credits. but it was ?breaking bad,? which ended in september, that almost certainly earned him the leading role in ?need for speed.

In the film, directed by scott waugh and produced by steven spielberg, he plays tobey marshall, an honest mechanic who joins a cross-country race to avenge a friend's death and save his garage from bankruptcy

The role is in stark contrast to that of pinkman, who makes and deals in crystal meth in new mexico

The actor, who will be in ridley scott's ?exodus? later this year, said he hopes ?need for speed? will lead to a sequel or sequels, to ?dive deeper into the past of tobey marshall.

That would seem a distinct possibility, given the box office success of similar high-speed car films like the ?fast and furious? franchise, which has made 2.3 billion over the six movies so far

Waugh, an ex stuntman who made the powerful 2012 film ?act of valor? about navy seals, said ?need for speed? was inspired by films from the late 60s and early 70s and from that era's icon, steve mcqueen

And unlike an increasing number of films, he foregoes computer-generated effects in favor of old-school driving and stunt skills.
