Westworld fans were recently delighted with the news that a third season had been ordered of the sci-fi drama.
Now they’ve got even more reason to look forward to season three of the show, as Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul is set to join the cast.
Producers are being tight-lipped on just what Paul’s character will be in the series, though it’s reportedly set to be a rather substantial role.
The Emmy winner will be the second Breaking Bad character to step into Westworld, joining Giancarlo Esposito, who played Gustavo Fring in BB, the owner of Lol Pollos Hermanos.
Esposito had a memorable cameo in season two as El Lazo, and despite his ending, he hopes it hasn’t fully shut the door on his time on the show.
The season which Paul will be stepping into is said to be a huge change of pace for viewers.
The show’s co-creator, Jonathon Nolan said “I think it’s a radical shift.”
Lisa Joy, the other mastermind behind the show, went on to reinforce how different things would be, adding that “It really is like repiloting,”
Something which Nolan explained could be terrifying: “And that’s terrifying and exciting in equal measure. I’m just thrilled that we have this incredible group that we’re working with to build it.”
Paul is a series regular on Apple’s upcoming drama Are You Sleeping? It is an anthology series, so most of the cast, including Paul, have one-year deals for the Season 1 story arc.
He most recently took a leading role in Hulu’s The Path.
