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.
