In 2012, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul expressed a “HUGE” dream of his to play Eddie Dean, from Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series.
“@ThomasStratman: @aaronpaul_8 if theres a Dark Tower movie you gotta promise me you’ll play eddie dean” Trust me. HUGE dream of mine.

Jessie Pinkman fans can breath easy – Blastr is reporting that Paul has indeed been cast in The Dark Tower. “Well, as casting quickly comes together for the February 2017 Sony picture — now to be directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) with production beginning in less than two months — we’re learning from reliable sources close to the production that Aaron Paul has been cast in The Dark Tower.” Blastr reported.
Though no one has said that Paul will be playing Eddie Dean, one can only hope. Like most, I can now only picture him in the role.
