Aaron Paul to team up with Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried for Fathers and Daughters

Jesse Pinkman continues his post Breaking Bad career trajectory!

Aaron Paul is set to co-star with Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried in FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS for director Gabriele Muccino (SEVEN POUNDS), based on the blacklist script by Brad Desch. It's unknown what role Paul would be playing the film, but the speculation is that it would be a love interest for Seyfried, which is ironic as he played her love interest on the HBO show Big Love.

Here's the story breakdown from Variety:

Story follows  a father and daughter living 25 years apart in New York City. Crowe will portray a famous novelist and widower struggling with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year-old daughter. Seyfried will portray the now-grown daughter in present-day Manhattan as she battles the aftermath of her troubled childhood.

Paul also has the upcoming NEED FOR SPEED on the docket, his first big starring gig post Breaking Bad, and is also starring in the drama HELLION as well as Ridley Scott's biblical epic, EXODUS. I like that Paul is taking on notable work and projects befitting his stature rather than jumping into every starring vehicle that's likely coming across his plate. Although I'll miss Jesse Pinkman, I look forward to seeing what Paul brings to the table as he moves on to the next phase of his career and thus far the choices have been varied and interesting. Off to a good start, I think.

FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS is currently in development. NEED FOR SPEED hits theaters on March 14, 2014.

I think he's a good enough actor to make the transition from character to character without being seen as Jesse Pinkman, but even if he doesn't completety, he's still a great actor.

I will always see Hugh Laurie as House, Sutherland as Bauer, Hall as Dexter, etc. Doesn't make them less of a great actor.

Aaron is a good enough actor that he can transition, I think. He will never be able to shake Jesse, I think. BB was one of the best shows in the history of television, so it will be hard for any of the actors involved to overcome their characters from it. But that doesn't mean we can't accept them as other characters in other projects. I think Aaron will have a fine career, provided his coming projects don't tank (looking at you, Need for Speed).

pseudo intellectual babble

Actors generally only have so many masks they can assume within a lifetime - Pinkman is definitely a prominent one- so let's hope he'll segue comfortably. Paul's still young enough to assume characters strange and appealing... but it's not like Pinkman was one-note and redundant. I'm sure he'll be fine. He's already done 'Smashed' which is a start - 'Need for Speed' is something distinctive and new (albeit generic action picture) - stoic, afflicted action hero - as if Pinkman had emerged out

I'm sure Paul is resigned with playing characters somewhat built on the Pinkman persona. Unlikely he'll ever free himself of that mask completely.

I think he'll always carry Pinkman with him, but the range that he showed on BB was outstanding. He took what could have been a disposable goofball and made him into a fully formed, flawed, and even rage-filled character. I'm just hoping he's given the opportunity to explore that range again and take it to new heights. We'll see...
