Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul lead actor in upcoming Need for Speed Movie

Don't worry guys, I haven't forgotten what I said in my last post about how I found some things in my house, but that'll still have to wait. Anyway I do have some good news to share!

As some of you may have heard, DreamWorks is actually creating a Need for Speed movie based off of the "Need for Speed" video game series. Over the years, Need for Speed games have mixed high speed action arcade racing, with open world exploration, and online multiplayer, and it is normally all tied together with some kind of story. From being an undercover cop in the underground racing world, to a street racer who decides to join an across country race as he runs for his life, Need for Speed has covered many different stories over the years, and it is only natural that a movie would be made of it one day.

Well anyway, details on the movie are still currently limited, but it turns out the lead actor will be someone a lot of you may know from the popular series Breaking Bad! Yep, Aaron Paul has signed on as the lead actor! Although Aaron has played many other smaller roles (for example he was in the "super hero" episode of Bones, and he was also the "psychic kid" in the juicy fruit gum ad quite a few years ago), he is the most well known for his role as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, which he has won two emmys for.

So, what do you guys think? Is Aaron Paul a good choice for the main character? Well, although we really don't know too much about the movie at this point, judging by his other works, he'll make a great main character. He's a very good actor, and I think it's nice to see him playing the lead.
