Need For Speed

BREAKING Bad luminary Aaron Paul has joined the forthcoming third season of Westworld.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will be a regular on the series – although, somewhat predictably, details of his character are being kept under wraps.

However, Paul will be the second Breaking Bad star to appear in Westworld, following Giancarlo Esposito, who had a memorable cameo in season two.

It will also be a couple of years before fans can expect to see how Paul shapes up in the series, given the length of time being taken between seasons.

The show’s sophomore run ended earlier this year, with series mainstays Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) having escaped into humanity, but that second run came two years after the first series.

Showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan do not want to rush the writing, which remains as complex as ever.

They have, however, promised a ‘radical shift’ for the series in season three.

Paul is currently filming the first season of the anthology series Are You Sleeping for Apple. He also starred in and produced Hulu’s series The Path.
