Emmy® Award-winning actor Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Smashed, Big Love) has been cast as the lead male actor in the Hulu Original The Way (wt).
Paul will also serve as a producer on the series and his production company Lucid Road Productions has made a first look deal with Universal Television.
The Way was created by Jessica Goldberg who will write and executive-produce the series, along with Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions.
Paul will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to a controversial movement with a wayward past. He’s a husband (to “Sarah Cleary” played by Michelle Monaghan) and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he’s come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged.
The Way examines a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power, with each episode taking an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want. The series is slated to premiere this winter.
