I guess Aaron Paul just looks like drugs. He captivates audiences as the meth-dealing Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, and now he will play the hard-partying husband to Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) in Smashed.
When Winstead's character Kate decides to get sober, it forces her to confront her demons, and question the nature of her bond with Paul's character Charlie. Watch the trailer below:
The film also stars Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and Mary Kary Place. James Ponsoldt directs Smashed, which he co-wrote with Susan Burke.
Smashed premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and will be released October 12.
