Aaron Paul lands his first major TV role since Breaking Bad

Paul is set to star and produce in new Hulu original drama The Way opposite Michelle Monaghan – his first live action role since he said goodbye to Jesse Pinkman

Aaron Paul’s heading to the small streaming screen for his first live action TV role since Breaking Bad.


The actor is set to star in and produce new Hulu drama The Way about a family who are members of a “controversial movement”. 

Airing exclusively on the US streaming service, the series will see Paul play Eddie Clearly, a husband who has started to question faith group The Way’s ‘teachings’, while his wife (played by Michelle Monaghan) is suspicious of her partner’s disillusion.

This is Paul’s first live action TV part since he ended his run as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, a role that won him a record three Emmy Awards for Best Supporting Actor. The Way is expected to run on Hulu this winter, although the streaming service isn’t currently available in the UK.

After a so-so mix of movie roles in 2014, Paul’s been teasing what his next projects will be, even announcing a prank Breaking Bad spin-off earlier this month.


He’s currently voicing a part in Netflix animated comedy BoJack Horseman, and is working with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul executive producer Mark Johnson on a new film called The Parts You Lose.
