‘Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul Joins ‘Westworld’ For Season 3
‘Breaking Bad’ star Aaron Paul is joining ‘Westworld‘ for it’s upcoming 3rd Season it has been announced.
Set in a futuristic theme park staffed by artificial beings, guests of ‘Westworld’ can live out their wildest fantasies. However, when the robots begin to run amok, the guests find themselves in a place where anything can happen.
At the moment, HBO and the ‘Westworld’ creators, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, are keeping quiet about exactly what Paul’s role will be, but he is said to be a series regular. They have a number of interesting places the show could go following the conclusion of Season 2, which apparently saw (WARNING, SPOILERS!) most of the synthetic hosts escape the park into the real world.
Aaron Paul has been pretty busy since his iconic role as the blue meth cooking Jesse Pinkman on ‘Breaking Bad’. He starred as Eddie in the Hulu series ‘The Path’ (which you can see in Amazon Prime UK), along with providing voices for various characters on Netflix’s ‘BoJack Horseman’.
His next project sees him join Apple’s anthology drama ‘Are You Sleeping’, based on the novel by Kathleen Barber, which explores people’s obsession with true-crime stories and podcasts. As it’s an anthology, most of the cast, which includes Octavia Spencer, Lizzy Caplan, Ron Cephas Jones, Elizabeth Perkins, and Mekhi Phifer, are only signed up for one year, which leaves Paul open to join ‘Westworld’.
Paul is following in the footsteps of fellow ‘Breaking Bad’ castmate Giancarlo Esposito, who popped in a cameo role last season on the sci-fi western drama. Esposito is currently reprising his part as drug boss Gustavo “Gus” Fring in ‘Better Call Saul’, which airs weekly on Netflix in the UK.
‘Westworld‘ Season 3 doesn’t yet have an official premiere date, but we’re expecting it to land in Spring 2020, as the show has a 2-year development cycle due to the complex filming and CGI work.
