Some might say that beggars can’t be choosers. And, even if Aaron Paul has experienced tremendous success via “Breaking Bad,” he’s still pretty new to the silver screen. Interestingly enough, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Paul was pretty choosy when he was handed the script for his upcoming action film, “Need for Speed.”
“I didn’t even want to read the script,” said Paul, “I saw the script and I was like, ‘Oh, no, another video-game movie’…So, it took everything in me to turn the first page. And once I turned the first page, I kept turning. I was so surprised that it had a great human story behind it and great characters that I found myself instantly invested in.” First impressions don’t tell the whole story, it seems, which is good for Paul, who is starting to build his filmography. In addition to “Need for Speed,” Aaron appears in the soon-to-be-blockbuster, “Exodus,” and an indie film called “Hellion” which premiered at Sundance.
As far as returning to television, Paul has his eye on a few shows. First, “House of Cards” is a show he’d love to be a part of. “’House of Cards’ is I think the greatest show that’s on right now; I love it,” he said. “What they’re doing is brilliant. What Netflix is doing is incredible.” Paul also sighted “True Detective” as a show he’d like to be involved with. Paul hasn’t seen it yet, and time will tell if we’ll see him on it.
