Want to watch a remarkably good character actor completely devalue his career by starring in an action movie devoid of nuance, depth or interest? Yea, me neither.
But here is Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul in the first trailer for Need For Speed. And it looks awful. This trailer watches like someone mashed together Michael Bay, John Woo and Justin Lin's brains, let them fester in the sun for a couple of days, then hooked the grey, soggy pile up to the DirectorBot3000. I don't know why Paul took this role, but how could anyone cast him as a stone-faced action hero? What made him so incredible in Breaking Bad is the fear he showed throughout the series. Now he's just going to tear a swath through society, murder-killing anyone who gets in his way? Great use of a talented rising star. That's what you get for hiring a director whose last actors were Navy SEALs.
