Typography in the drama arena is still a big elephant in the room, though there is more awareness of it and it seems to be an anachronistic Hollywood practice. Unfortunately it is still too real. And it could get worse as more cult shows are made for cable and larger movie franchises.
Nobody would have thought that someone like Aaron Paul would go through something similar. After starring in Breaking Bad he found himself somewhat confronted with typography, though not with the wrath of the industry as a flash in the pan just because a movie did not succeed. At least he's trying to overcome this by revisiting his Jesse Pinkman character in the upcoming Netflix Breaking Bad movie El Camino. However, we wonder if he needs a bigger reinvention so Pinkman will not follow him everywhere.
Aaron Paul admits to having big disappointments on the big screen.
In a recent Vulture-led interview, Paul said he looks forward to seeing greater success in streaming or on television after failing to film. He probably makes the right choice, since streaming and cable are anyway or at least partially the new cinema. His way of becoming the next big action star was not exactly what he and others had imagined.
When he played Breaking Bad the movie bids piled up. The first film he selected ( Need for Speed ) landed at the box office. Perhaps too many people took it for a quick and furious knockoff, proving that one can not always say how a film will evolve from the written page.
Later, Paul appeared in Ridley Scott's new biblical version of Moses in Exodus: Gods and Kings. Although it is a spectacular 3D production, there were only minimal box office scores.
These were two high-profile projects, but Paul has continued to work in films. None of them was a big breakout hit, so the return trip to Breaking Bad was almost necessary.
The timing could be with & # 39; El Camino & # 39; not be better.  Obviously Breaking Bad the creator Vince Gilligan wanted to write a follow-up to Breaking Bad regardless of Paul's career problems. Paul did not hesitate to sign up immediately when such a project finally became known.
In recent years there has been a lot of frustration on Paul's side, especially as he was accused of having had movie flops. None of this was his fault, because the decision on film parts is always a gamble. Considering that he had made his film selection while still playing in Breaking Bad, he probably does not have enough time to clarify what might or may not work.
Now with El Camino, Paul says his wife was thrilled that he could return to a role with a real advantage. The parts he's been filming lately are far from the complexity Pinkman had.
This is about a potential spinoff series with Pinkman, even though Paul will be employed in the third season of Westworld for a while.
Would there ever be a spin-off series with Jesse Pinkman?
Do not count the streaming spin-offs of Pinkman's character that occur, bearing in mind that he has a lot of his past to pay for and at Fix to find a sense of mental healing. For the most part it is about El Camino possibly with a cameo of Bryan Cranston's Walter White in flashback form. Since Gilligan said Walt was definitely dead, we know that Paul's Pinkman will be the showcase.
It's a complex character that we can easily see in another series. Of course we all have to wonder if this would improve the type Paul was trying to break.
Perhaps his role in Westworld will be compelling enough to transcend any memory of Pinkman in the foreseeable future. On the other hand, probably no character is left in the memory than Pinkman, which could lead to Paul forever holding on to this convincing character.
