Aaron Paul announced a scavenger hunt in honor of “Breaking Bad” for the Los Angeles area. The actor revealed via Instagram that he would be holding the LA-based event on Monday, Aug. 25, the same day as the Emmys broadcast.

“There will be signed ‘Breaking Bad’ scripts, posters, dolls, action figures and some really cool Breaking Bad art hidden all over the Hollywood area,” the actor wrote.

Paul added that he’s throwing the hunt as a way to thank fans for their support of “Breaking Bad” through the years. “We couldn’t have done it without you,” he wrote on his Instagram page. “Happy hunting.”

The actor doesn’t specify how the event will be coordinated, or how fans will be able to find out when and where to start looking. As he announced it via Instagram, though, it might be safe to assume those interested in the Los Angeles area should stay tuned to his Instagram feed for updates.

“Breaking Bad” has been a perennial favorite at the Emmy Awards, nabbing a total of 49 nominations, with 11 wins so far. Paul has won twice for his role as junkie Jesse Pinkman, and is nominated again this year. All told, “Breaking Bad” has six nominations for the upcoming awards ceremony, including Outstanding Drama Series.

With “Breaking Bad” behind him, Paul is eyeing his next big projects, and he indicated to TheWrap he might have some interest in comedy. “I would love to have a stint on ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’” the actor said, noting that it would be a fun departure from the intensity of “Bad.” He also gave a shout-out to “Veep.”

“The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards” airs on Monday, Aug. 25 at 8/7c on NBC.
