Deadline reports Paul is heading to a world of artificial intelligence with a role in Westworld's third season. The 39-year-old will reportedly become a series regular.
Paul went to Twitter to share the news with his followers. "I feel like I’m in a dream Dolores. Can you wake me up from this dream?" read the tweet, referencing Evan Rachel Wood's character. The tweet was accompanied by a photo of one of Westworld's famous images of an all-white muscular system forming into a host.
It's been 10 years since Breaking Bad went off the air but Paul's been pretty busy. He voices the co-lead Todd Chavez in Netflix's BoJack Horseman and starred as Eddie Lane in Hulu's The Path. He also lent his voice for a cameo in Black Mirror's "USS Callister." Next up he's set to star in Apple's anthology drama Are You Sleeping? But as Deadline notes, since it's an anthology, it's likely he'll have a single-season deal leaving him ample time to fulfill his Westworld duties.
Westworld has been quite the hit on HBO. It nabbed 21 Emmy nominations for its second season and already won three Creative Arts Emmys. The series stars Jeffrey Wright, Jimmi Simpson, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, Anthony Hopkins, and more. Whether Paul winds up being a scientist, host, guest, or a Delos Destinations' figurehead, there'll will be plenty of moments for him to use his Breaking Bad catchphrase: Science, bitch!
