Aaron Paul has kept rather busy since hauling ass off Breaking Bad. He’s dabbled in voice acting, completed three films that are in post-production, and he’s currently in the midst of filming Eye In The Sky, opposite Colin Firth and Helen Mirren. Now, according to Variety, Paul has also joined the cast of The 9th Life Of Louis Drax, the latest from The Hills Have Eyes director Alexandre Aja. Paul will portray the father of the titular 9-year-old character, the sort of paternal role he’s similarly tackled before. The 9th Life Of Louis Drax, based on Liz Jensen’s 2005 novel of the same name, involves a boy who suffers a nasty fall on his ninth birthday, subsequently entering into a deep coma and receiving help from a special psychologist. Jamie Dornan (Mr. Grey himself) will star as that psychologist.
