Aaron Paul might've been joking about a Jesse Pinkman Breaking Bad spinoff, but he wasn't entirely kidding about getting his own show. Hulu has announced that Paul will star in the streaming platform's upcoming ten-episode series The Way, from Friday Night Lights executive producer Jason Katims. Once again, he'll play a guy with a "wayward past" — only now that past has driven him to "a controversial religious movement" instead of a meth-cooking chemistry teacher. Paul's character will reportedly experience a "crisis of faith" that puts a strain on his relationship with his wife, played by Michelle Monaghan, who has a lot of experience with this sort of thing.
