No, Jack Daniel’s isn’t getting in on the original content game, but they might as well be. WGN America has commissioned a new historical drama with Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul, following the life and times of the famed whiskey brand’s creator after the Civil War.
A decade’s worth of Breaking Bad “Before They Were Stars” articles have drilled into the public conscious that Aaron Paul made a memorably tragic turn on The Price Is Right long before picking up the beaker. Surprisingly, Paul never took a second stab at the Showcase Showdown, but now finally gets his chance.
The third season of Better Call Saul couldn’t help leaning into the announcement of its biggest Breaking Bad cameo to date, but don’t think stars Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will ever stop teasing their own returns. The latter even suggests that Jesse Pinkman might already have shot a Season 3 appearance, but how?
Hard as it was to get a handle on the first season of Hulu’s Aaron Paul-Hugh Dancy-Michelle Monaghan religious drama The Path, our first look at Season 2 is going significantly darker. See for yourself in the first trailer in photos, complete with cult support groups, faceless straphangers and sexy meditation!
No more than halfway through November, and already TV is partitioning out your schedule for 2017. The latest to set its round of new premieres is Hulu, with a religious return for The Path Season 2, along with Elisabeth Moss’ adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, and more.
It’s a classic premise, and for good reason: guy’s wife/girlfriend/daughter vanishes into thin air, guy drives himself halfway to madness in dogged attempts to get her back, guy grows unkempt beard of mourning. It has drama and intrigue wired right into the plot beats, allows for some salacious secrets, and who doesn’t love a good mystery? George Sluizer’s 1988 film The Vanishing may have done it best, but just a couple of years ago, David Fincher gave him a run for his money with Gone Girl. And today, we get our first look at the latest entry in this grand storytelling tradition.
Aaron Paul has a way with deeply flawed characters — you might even say it’s his specialty: He takes the sort of guy you’d normally despise (like Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman) and injects him with startling pathos, transforming a character into a painfully empathetic human being. This is what he does in The 9th Life of Louis Drax, a psychological fantasy-thriller in which Paul plays the enigmatic role of imperfect father to the eponymous protagonist. Directed by Alexandre Aja (Horns) and co-starring Sarah Gadon and Jamie Dornan, the somewhat surreal drama takes advantage of Paul’s particular set of skills in a subversive bit of typecasting. We had a chance to speak with Paul about the new film, what attracts him to such flawed characters, and those persistent Dark Tower rumors.
A tragic accident. A strange mystery. A family with a dark secret. A desperate race to uncover the truth. They all come together in the new psychological thriller The 9th Life of Louis Drax, which opens in theaters this Friday, September 2.
BoJack Horseman picked a hell of a weekend to debut his third Netflix season, to coincide with the madness of Comic-Con 2016, but never you fear an end to that binge. The star-studded animated comedy will get right back to Horsin’ Around in 2017, as Netflix confirms Season 4 for BoJack Horseman.
And lo, the internet was gifted a first trailer for BoJack Horseman Season 3 this week, albeit without the strictest sense of what to expect from the down-and-out horseman’s post-Secretariat resurgence. Now, a new batch of photos give us clue into the July premiere, including BoJack and Princess Carolyn’s early days, and an encounter with Officer Meow Meow Fuzzyface.
