He has also won two Saturn Awards for Best Supporting Actor on Television.
Paul was born in Emmett, Idaho, the son of Darla (née Haynes) and Robert Sturtevant, a Baptist minister. He is the youngest of five children. He has English, German, and Scottish ancestry; the surname Sturtevant is English. Paul attended Centennial High School in Boise and graduated one year early. Prior to gaining fame, he appeared on an episode of The Price Is Right on January 3, 2000, winning a desk. He also worked as a movie theater usher at Universal Studios in Hollywood.
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.
Paul has appeared in the films Whatever It Takes (2000), Help! I'm a Fish (2001), K-PAX (2001), MTV's TV Movie Wasted (2002), National Lampoon's Van Wilder (2002), Perfect Opposites (2004), Bad Girls From Valley High (2005), Choking Man (2006), Mission: Impossible III (2006), and The Last House on the Left (2009), among others.

His recurring character Scott Quittman on HBO's Big Love appeared 14 times over the show's five seasons.
In 2008, Paul began playing Jesse Pinkman on the AMC series Breaking Bad. His character was originally meant to die during the first season, but after seeing the chemistry between Paul and series star 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, the eldest son of Cranston's Malcolm in the Middle character. For his role in Breaking Bad, Paul was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013, winning in 2010 and 2012.
In 2012, Paul was rumored to be in talks for the lead in the HBO pilot The Missionary, a spy drama set during the Cold War, but Benjamin Walker was eventually cast.
Paul became engaged to Lauren Corinne Parsekian in Paris on January 1, 2012. The two met at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, and began dating a year later at the same festival. They were married on May 26, 2013.
