The best rumors running through Hollywood right now? One says Aaron Paul is being considered for the male lead in one of the upcoming Star Wars spinoffs. The other says Bryan Cranston is being eyed for the villain role in the upcoming Star Trek 3.
F*cking sweet, right? Breaking Bad in space.
I must reiterate, though, that these are just rumors.
Earlier today, THRreported that Oscar-nominated Theory of Everything star FelicityJones has been cast in the unnamed Star Wars spinoff being directed by Gareth Edwards. Then, further down in the article, it was reported that Aaron Paul and Edgar Ramirez were being considered for the male lead. Though one can only assume that, if the former Breaking Bad star does end up getting the part, Edwards will kill him off 20 minutes into the movie.
As for Cranston, that rumor comes to us from Film Divider(via Screen Rant). They reported that filmmakers apparently want someone "Bryan Cranston-like" for the villain role and have actually "had words" with Cranston himself. There's no telling what those words were. They may have been "no, sorry, I don't want to be in your space movie," or "wait, you want us to pay you how much?" But they might also have been, "yeah, that would be awesome, let's figure this out!"
Personally, I'm hoping both rumors prove to be true. The big screen needs way more Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
