It's never a surprise when incredibly talented directors attract A-list talent to their projects. With the case of acclaimed director Ridley Scott, that truth has been realized, and then some, for the insane ensemble he is locking in for his upcoming biblical epic "Exodus".
The film already has Christian Bale set to play Moses and Joel Edgerton locked into play the evil Egyptian pharaoh Ramses. Now it's been reported that Aaron Paul, Sir Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro, are either in final negotiations or are already set, to round out the already amazing cast.
Kingsley is as good as it gets, and Weaver and Turturro are very talented actors as well, but I am personally the most excited to see Paul join the cast. He has spent the last five years on the cult-classic TV show "Breaking Bad", opposite Bryan Cranston. Quite arguably one of the best shows to ever grace our televisions, Paul has made the character of Jesse Pinkman come alive in all his tragic beauty. A beyond layered and complex character, the passion and commitment he brought to that role was incredibly inspired. Paul will be expanding his range and will be taking the big-screen by storm, to be seen next in Disney's "Need for Speed", directed by Scott Waugh ("Act of Valor" ).
Weaver is a familiar face for Scott, having previously worked together on "Alien" and "1492: Conquest of Paradise".
