Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul Boards Jason Katims' Faith-Based Hulu Drama

Aaron Paul Hulu The Way

Three-time Emmy winner Aaron Paul has joined the cast of Hulu’s The Way.

The news comes on the heels of the actor “announcing” on Periscope that he had signed on for a Jesse Pinkman-centric, Alaska-based Breaking Bad sequel, and then immediately apologizing profusely for the fib.

A 10-episode series created by Katims’ fellow Parenthood scribe Jessica Goldberg, The Way examines a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power.

Paul will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to the movement with a wayward past. He’s a husband (to Sarah Cleary, played by Michelle Monaghan) and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he’s come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged.

Paul will also serve as a producer on the series.

The Way is slated to premiere in early 2016.

    I remember when Aaron Paul was a contestant on The Price is Right with Bob Barker as the host. TPIR should booked him for an appearance one day.

    Looking forward to more Katims! Paul is an added bonus. Was so disappointed that About A Boy was officially canceled because it was a a real gem.

      I agree! I really loved About A Boy. I’ve actually loved everything Jason Katims has done. I think this will be a great show.

        I wonder if we will see the remaining episodes since NBC pulled it??? The best thing about the show IMO was it gave me hope that we would continue to see Crosby Braverman after Parenthood was done… Alas, it’s done so Crosby is lost to the Ether unless there’s a reunion show down the road..

    …”faith-based”???

    I thought Aaron Paul was going to be a great big giant movie star. A Hulu series seems like a BIG step down.

    • johnhelvete says:

      He has 5 upcoming movies but I dont think he is more of the third or fourth actor in a movie type and not the leading man type. Doing a 10 episode series for 5 months still gives him time to film movies for the other 7 months out of the year. Hulu might not have the cachet of Netflix or even Amazon, but they have several very interesting series coming up.

    • Brooke says:

      In 2015, a Hulu or Netflix series is a much more impressive feat than a movie. Today’s movies are just not that good. Television storytelling is in a golden era and streaming services are at the head of the pack.
