'Fifty Shades of Grey' Dakota Johnson Stars With 'Breaking Bad' Aaron Paul in 'Need for Speed' [PHOTOS]
Who would have thought that "Breaking Bad" star's' Aaron Paul would be in the same film as "Fifty Shades of Grey's" Dakota Johnson? For fans hoping it's something related to the film adaptation of E.L. James' erotica novel, it's far from what they'd hope. Instead, Aaron and Dakota star in the much anticipated film, "Need for Speed."
If Dakota Johnson is currently making headlines all thanks to her kinky role as Anastasia Steele, Aaron Paul's name has long been in the limelight. Better known as Jesse Pinkman in the AMC series, Aaron stars in "Breaking Bad" which is now on its final season. Thanks to his rising popularity, Aaron is set to star in the upcoming film adaptation of the popular video game, "Need for Speed."
Joining Aaron Paul is none other than the women set to play Anastasia Steele in "Fifty Shades of Grey," Dakota Johnson. The film also stars Michael Keaton and Dominic Cooper under the direction of Scott Waugh. Aaron Paul plays the part of Tobey Marshall, a mechanic who partners with Dino Brewster, played by Dominic Cooper, an ex-NASCAR driver in the hopes of saving his garage. As for Dakota Johnson, her part is yet to be revealed.
"Need For Speed is going to surprise everybody. I think a lot of people are thinking it's going to be this car film, but it's not that at all," explained Aaron Paul in an interview with Empire Magazine, adding, "There's no actual narrative in the game, it's just superfast cars with the point of view of the driver: his point of view as his car blasts around. And, of course, cops chasing them. It's just plain make-believe, pure imagination - it's really, truly a blank canvas using really incredible supercars."
