AceShowbiz - The upcoming third season of "Westworld" will feature a major addition of the cast. The hit HBO show has tapped three-time Emmy-winning actor Aaron Paul to join the cast for the new season.
Detail of "Breaking Bad" vet's character on the apocalyptic series is kept tightly in the wraps. Fans will seemingly have to wait a little longer to find out whether Aaron will play a human, a host or even a host who mistakenly believes themselves to be a human. However, Deadline reports that the actor will be a series regular.
The actor takes to Twitter to tease his involvement in the upcoming new season of the Emmy-winning series. "I feel like I'm in a dream Dolores. Can you wake me up from this dream?" he writes alongside a picture of the show that's based on Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name.
Aaron is currently filming Apple drama "Are You Sleeping", on which he stars opposite Octavia Spencer and Lizzy Kaplan. "The Path" alum, who is best known for his role of Jesse Pinkman on the critically-acclaimed AMC show "Breaking Bad", has received four Emmy nominations and won three of them. Aaron's credits include "Triple 9", "Eye in the Sky" and "Long Way Down" among others.
Season 3 of "Westworld" will see a different world than what fans have seen in the first two seasons. The second season ended in a fully upended status quo with most of the hosts either being dead or going from the park.
Of the upcoming season, star Jeffrey Wright (Bernard), revealed that he's "excited to explore the idea of host as guests, as Bernard and Dolores [Evan Rachel Wood] are guests now." He added, "The mirror reflection seems that it's turned on this new [incarnation of] Westworld, and that is the human world. I think the exploration now of [pretending to be] human inside this world as hosts could be rich territory. Once again, it seems there's a possibility, again, without having read one word of season three, that the worlds are turned upside down and inside out once more."
HBO has yet to announced the premiere date of season 3 of "Westworld", though it's expected to arrive sometime in 2020.
