True Detective Premiere Recap: I Was Not Caught, Though Many Tried

21 June 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Remember when being a TV cop meant being a cool badass instead of being an emotionally frayed burlap sack of misery?

It’s not hard to imagine Officer Frank Poncherello shaking his head in shame at True Detective‘s men and women of California law enforcement, so woeful are their backstories, so apparent is their sadness. The Season 2 opener does little more than introduce these featured cops and tee up the crime that kicks off their shared narrative — and that’s compelling enough to make you want to come back next week — but oof, is it tough to witness so much unhappiness. »

Watch: Aaron Paul’s Imperfect ‘Breaking Bad’ Audition

18 June 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

With the announcement of Aaron Paul snagging the lead in Jason Katims’ (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) upcoming Hulu drama “The Way,” we thought we’d take a look at where it all began for the actor formerly known as Jesse Pinkman. As Jesse in “Breaking Bad,” Paul won three Emmys, was nominated another two times, and developed a fan base like no other. By the end of the series, he embodied Jesse completely, but in the audition video below…not so much.  A nervous Paul fumbles his lines, swears, and even apologizes at the end. But, of course, it’s not necessarily about your ability in the moment, but your suitability for the role—and imagine if someone else had yelled “bitch!” for five straight seasons? Want to see more?

Aaron Paul Will Star in a Hulu Series (But It’s Not a Breaking Bad Spinoff)

17 June 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

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. »
