Westworld season 3: Aaron Paul joins the cast

Aaron Paul has nabbed a role in Westworld season 3, adding another prestigious TV show to a CV that already includes Breaking Bad, The Path and BoJack Horseman. 

Deadline Hollywood broke the news of Paul’s casting in Westworld, reporting that the show’s producers are “being tight-lipped on the character”, who is believed to be a series regular in the upcoming third season of HBO’s robot drama.

Of course, this being Westworld, there is one main question we have about this casting: is Aaron Paul playing a human or a host, a man or a machine, a robot or a no-bot?

This is exactly the sort of information that we wouldn’t expect to get ahead of time, especially on a show like this, so we’ll just need to wait and watch to find out the true nature of Paul’s character.

Paul also has a role in an Apple original series entitled Are You Sleeping, but that is believed to be a one-year contract for an anthology show, which shouldn’t conflict with his new commitment to Westworld.

Over on Twitter, Paul posted this Tweet about this casting in Westworld:

The Westworld season 3 release date has not been announced yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as we hear more about the show’s highly anticipated return.
