MANILA, Philippines – Aaron Paul has played some pretty interesting roles – from an ill-fated drug dealer to a cult member who has a crisis of faith – and his next project is no exception. The award-winning actor is set to appear in the upcoming season of the HBO series, Westworld.

“Thank you, Jonah [Nolan, executive producer and writer] and Lisa [Joy, executive producer and writer] and all of the people over at [Westworld] for allowing me to come play in your park. See you all very soon.”
