Here's an interesting development, via Deadline: Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul (currently working on Apple TV's forthcoming anthology series, Are You Sleeping?) is joining the cast of Westworld in its upcoming third season.
As you might expect, details about Paul's character are currently being kept under wraps, but we're guessing he'll be playing one of the following:
- A mean cowboy robot
- A nice cowboy robot
- A cowboy robot of indeterminate morality
- A shady businessman
- An altruistic businessman
- A noble scientist
- A crooked scientist
- A crooked scientist who humps the robots
- Jesse Pinkman
It's definitely gonna be one of those, but chances are we won't find out until Westworld returns in...well, we're not precisely sure when Westworld is coming back, to be honest, but in all likelihood the wait won't be as long as it was in between seasons one and two (est. duration: five years). We're excited to see how this turns out.
While we're on the subject, though (and because there's literally nothing else to report here): where did you folks land on Westworld's second season? I was a big fan during season one, but found season two difficult to get into, and - after several failed attempts to get through the season's first few episodes - I decided to set the whole thing aside and loop back around to it the next time I'm laid out with the flu/nursing a two-day hangover. Of course this means that at least half of season two's beats were ruined for me by social media, but life is filled with hard choices that carry with them hard consequences.
Let us know where you're at with it (and what you think of Paul joining the series!) in the comments section we have helpfully provided for you below, and stay tuned for more on Westworld S3 as further updates become available.
