Aaron Paul Rumoured to be in The Dark Tower
Aaron Paul way back in 2012 stated that playing character of Eddie Dean was a massive dream of his. In 2014, he told AICN that he'd had a "ton of meetings" toward fulfilling it. Now it seems that dream may have come true.
The Breaking Bad alum has been reported for a role by Blastr, though the source couldn't confirm who Paul is playing. Dean doesn't appear in the series until the second book, The Drawing of the Three. If that is Paul's role, it could mean director Nikolaj Arcel is looking to throw a few elements from throughout the series into the mix for the first film.
Pre-production is underway for the film. Idris Elba is playing Roland, the Gunslinger. Matthew McConaughey will play the opposing character Flagg, the Man in Black. The film is aiming for a January 2017 release.
