Gilligan recalls Paul coming to him after season two and asking if Jesse could cut his hair short. “I don’t know that he ever put it into words, but I think he was sensing that Jesse was at a point in the story where he was very much buying into the cult of Walter White,” Gilligan says. “Jesse was subconsciously trying to look more like his mentor. And it was an excellent detail that did not come from me, did not come from the writers, came strictly from Aaron Paul.” (c)
