He is the youngest of four children and was born a month premature in his parents' bathroom. He has English, German, and Scottish ancestry. He attended Centennial High School in Boise, Idaho and graduated one year early in 1998. After graduation, he drove to Los Angeles with his mother in his 1982 Toyota Corolla, with $6,000 in savings. Prior to gaining fame, he appeared on an episode of The Price Is Right on January 3, 2000. Appearing under his real name, he played one pricing game and overbid by $132 on the Showcase. He also worked as a movie theater usher at Universal Studios in Hollywood, California. Career In 1996, Paul went to Los Angeles for the International Modeling and Talent Association competition. He won runner-up in the competition and signed with a manager. He starred in music videos for Korn's song "Thoughtless" and Everlast's song "White Trash Beautiful". He was featured in television commercials for Juicy Fruit, Corn Pops, and Vanilla Coke. He appeared in the films Whatever It Takes (2000), Help!

His character was originally meant to die during the first season, but after seeing the chemistry between Paul and lead actor Bryan Cranston, series creator Vince Gilligan changed his mind and modified the original plans to save the character. Coincidentally, Paul had once unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Francis Wilkerson, the eldest son of Cranston's Malcolm in the Middle character, Hal.

They were married on May 26, 2013 in a 1920s Parisian carnival-themed wedding in Malibu, California, with music provided by Foster the People and John Mayer.
