Former Breaking Bad star and Emmy winner Aaron Paul is joining HBO’s Westworld for its third season, Highlight Hollywood has confirmed.
The actor will be a regular on the series, but the show is keeping details of his character a secret for now. Paul will be the second Breaking Bad mainstay to appear on Westworld, following Giancarlo Esposito, who had a cameo in season two.
The Westworld that Paul will step into may look quite a bit different than the one viewers have watched unfold over the first two seasons, as season two ended with a fully upended status quo. Most of the hosts that viewers came to know across the first 20 episodes were either dead or gone from the park — including Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), both of whom escaped for new lives among humanity, harboring very different intentions toward mankind.
