James Corden helped Aaron Paul’s search for redemption following an epic loss on “The Price Is Right” 17 years ago.

In 2000, when Paul would have been about 20 years old (and long before his “Breaking Bad” fame or even many acting jobs), he got the chance to play “The Price Is Right.” It turned out that his knowledge of what items were worth was pretty good and he made it all the way to the show’s final game, the Showcase Showdown. That’s when his luck changed, though. He ended up overbidding on the prize package, a sports car, by a mere $132.

“I got to be honest,” Paul said on Wednesday’s episode of Corden’s “Late Late Show,” “When I did the show, I was struggling, had no money, and it was really a source of possible income. When I lost that damn car, I was so depressed for so long.”

Corden gave Paul an opportunity for a do-over. In the sketch, the pair breaks in to the game show’s set and then goes through the various motions of the show.

“The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey also drops in and agrees to help Paul in his quest to redeem his former Showcase Showdown blunder. Will Paul accomplish his goal and walk away with one less life regret?
