Aaron Paul Stays Mum About His Rumored Role In 'The Dark Tower'

The former "Breaking Bad" star had little to say about all those casting rumors.

According to the rumor mill, actor Aaron Paul will be signing on for the film adaptation of "The Dark Tower." But when the former star of "Breaking Bad" stopped by HuffPost Live on Wednesday, he stayed tight-lipped about the reports.

"I cannot confirm or deny," he told host Alyona Minkovski. "These rumors keep resurfacing and I always, deep down, think, 'Do I not know everything?'"

Paul said he was itching to be included in the on-screen version of Stephen King's book series, so he reached out to the writer on Twitter to ask for a role in the project.

"It would be absolutely a dream of mine. I've been such a fan of those books for many years, huge fan of Stephen King," he said. "I talked to Stephen last night about it. I hit him up on Twitter. It's incredible the people you can talk to on Twitter."

King responded back, remaining unsurprisingly cagey about whether Paul would be joining the ranks of actors, including Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Tom Taylor, who have reportedly been cast in the film.
