Aaron Paul Says He Can’t Wait to Have Kids with Wife Lauren

03/10/2016 at 03:05 PM ET

Aaron Paul gained critical acclaim as high school student-turned-drug dealer Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, but now the actor is playing a dad on Hulu’s new drama The Path.

“It’s strange,” Paul, 36, says in the current issue of PEOPLE of having a 21-year-old play his 18-year-old son on the new series. “But it actually makes me want to have kids sooner than ever!”

Paul and his wife Lauren may be looking to start a family in the near future, but right now they are a little fixated on something else: Netflix’s hit documentary series Making a Murderer.

“Lauren has already watched it twice and is emailing Steven Avery‘s lawyers with her theories,” he says. “She’s watched and re-watched clips and has some interesting ideas of what happened.”

So it looks like the potential mom-to-be already has the attention to detail it will take to raise a little one!

The Path will begin streaming March 30 on Hulu.

Ugh. Blah. These two are too much gushy blah crap. Either do or do not do, but nobody cares either way.
