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.
