After just finishing five remarkable seasons of the critically-lauded TV drama "Breaking Bad," you would think Aaron Paul -- aka Jesse Pinkman -- is tired of playing reckless characters who end up with the short end of the stick. Not the case. You can expect this Emmy-winning actor to again play a hapless lawbreaker in next year's big screen adaptation of the well-known video-game franchise "Need For Speed," in which a brand-new full-length trailer has been unveiled today.
Working under the direction of "Act of Valor" helmer Scott Waugh, the "Breaking Bad" alum stars in this Fast-and-Furious-esque actioner, playing a newly-paroled, ex-road-racer who's out to exact his revenge on the double-crossing scoundrel responsible for his two-year incarceration. His rage-fueled path, however, leads him straight into a heavy-duty street race across America, where he finds the stakes are as high as the gas prices (and body count).
Framed for a crime he didnít commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey -- one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption.
The Need For Speed stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Michael Keaton, Nick Chinlund, Dakota Johnson, Rami Malek, Ramon Rodriguez, Kid Cudi, Scott Mescudi
