Is Westworld about to break bad? 

Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on AMC's iconic Breaking Bad, is about to join the HBO theme-park show, his representative confirmed Thursday.

Deadline was first to report the news. HBO didn't respond to a request for comment.

Breaking Bad ended in 2013, and Paul won three Emmys for his role as Walter White's former student-turned-meth-business partner. He's an executive producer of Bojack Horseman, and voices Todd Chavez on that show. Paul's also a regular on Are You Sleeping?, an upcoming Apple drama.

There's no word on Paul's possible role. Westworld star James Marsden is set to appear in a new Netflix series, Dead To Me. While there's been no confirmation that he won't return to Westworld, this could leave a leading-man role open for Paul.

Westworld has no announced return date, though it's been renewed for a third season.
