‘Breaking Bad’ Star Aaron Paul Gets AnimatedBy: Ann Casano - December 11, 2013
Aaron Paul just completed the role of a lifetime with his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman on the hit television series “Breaking Bad.” Now it looks like the young actor is doing a 180 degree turn from the violent, cruel, crime-filled world of “Bad” and has signed on with an animated series.
Paul will join Will Arnett and Amy Sedaris in the Netflix animated comedy series “Bojack Horseman, A Tale of Fear, Loathing and Animals.” Ted Sarandos from Netflix describes what audiences can expect from the 12-episode series. “Bojack Horseman’ is a brutally funny and unique take on what can happen after pop stardom. Raphael [Bob-Waksberg, series creator] has created an amazing set of characters voiced by some of the best comics and actors in the world.”
The 34 year old actor is set to voice a character named Todd, who is Bojack’s human sidekick. The irony of Paul playing a guy named Todd will not be lost on “Breaking Bad” fans.
No exact release date for the series has been set. However, television audiences around the world can expect to see the show on Netflix sometime in mid-2014. In the meantime, you can check out the actor on the big screen. Paul has three films currently in post production: “A Long Way Down,” which is an adaptation of the best-selling Nick Hornby novel of the same name, “Need for Speed,” will feature Paul in the lead role as a speed racer, and finally “Hellion” where Paul will take a turn at playing an absentee father.
