There are many different words that could be used to describe Westworld on HBO. Some of which I definitely can’t use on this site. But one thing for sure is that is definitely complex and gets your brain working in ways that shows like Legion and Mr. Robot often do. And perhaps Maniac on Netflix, but I haven’t seen that for myself just yet. But one casting news we did learn about earlier this year was that Aaron Paul would be joining the HBO series. And Digital Spy had a chance to catch up with the Breaking Bad actor to discuss the series.
Naturally, Aaron Paul wouldn’t say much about his role in Westworld, as there’s a high level of secrecy around the series, even with how complex it is, but Paul did state that he’s been a fan of the series since the beginning and that this is a fun opportunity for him to take on next:
“All I can say is it’s par for the course. What is so great about Westworld is it’s just so inventive and different and dangerous and gory, but this doesn’t shy away from that, this particular new addition. I’m excited to join the team, that’s really all I can say.”
And that’s about as vague as you can possibly get with a series like Westworld, which doesn’t currently have a set or even expected release date yet. Chances are HBO may be gearing up first for the final season of Game of Thrones next year and then focus on Westworld, but regardless, it remains an ever-present mystery as to who Aaron Paul will play in the series when it returns…some time in the future.
With that in mind, what sort of role would you want to see Paul play in Westworld? And what direction do you hope to see the science fiction series head in next? Let us know in the comments below.
Westworld stars Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Tessa Thompson, Ed Harris, Angela Sarafyan, Shannon Woodward, Zahn McClarnon, Fares Fares, Luke Hemsworth, and Simon Quarterman. The series is currently available on HBO.
