Posted Thursday January 9, 2014 5:13 PM GMT

His hit series "Breaking Bad" ended after five seasons last fall, and now Aaron Paul admits he's not quite sure if he's ready to say goodbye to the ground-breaking drama.

In the February 2014 issue of DETAILS magazine, the 34-year-old actor discussed the letter he wrote to the show's creator Vince Gilligan about his character and even revealed his thoughts about the spinoff "Better Call Saul."

Check out a few highlights from Mr. Paul's Q&A session below. For more, be sure to pay a visit to DETAILS!

On his character's fate on "Breaking Bad":
"I wrote an e-mail to Vince before we started shooting the final eight episodes - a plea for Jesse, a love letter. I never give my two cents when it comes to 'Breaking Bad,' because why would I? I'm just the actor, and what they're doing is perfect, you know? But I just felt like I would always regret it if I didn't at least throw them a pitch on how I wanted Jesse to go out. So I gave a few different ideas of how I thought he would kill himself. I didn't want anybody else taking his life. The letter was awful. It was very morbid, and I'm so happy they didn't listen. I'd rather Jesse just kind of ride off into the sunset like he did."

On "Better Call Saul":
"I don't think I'm ready to move on yet. Both Bryan [Cranston] and I want to be a part of that. If they'll have us."

On his career:
"My first gig was a Corn Pops commercial. I did the first Vanilla Coke campaign. A Juicy Fruit commercial paid my bills for years. [While appearing on 'Big Love'] that's when I started doing stuff on a regular basis that I was really, really proud of. 'Exodus' came out of nowhere. I was just like, 'Really? Do you want me to audition maybe? You want me to fight for this, fight for the role?' I'm just so used to clawing and fighting. I gravitate toward edgy, intense, dark films that just grab you by the throat."
