A new face is headed to Westworld.
The Path and Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul will join the upcoming third season of the HBO sci-fi series, Deadline confirmed earlier today.
While producers have yet to reveal any further details about Paul’s role in Westworld, Deadline hints it is likely to see the actor in a series regular gig for the season.
Paul himself confirmed the news with a tweet reading, “I feel like I’m in a dream Dolores. Can you wake me up from this dream?” Of course, fans of the sci-fi thriller will note is a reference to Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores.

Westworld, created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, explores artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin on the show. The series was renewed for a third season back in May, and showrunners Nolan and Joy promised a “radical shift” for the series this season.
Most recently, Paul can be seen on Apple’s upcoming drama Are You Sleeping?
