Aaron Paul on Joshua and the size of Ridley Scott’s Exodus

Aaron Paul on Joshua and the size of Ridley Scott’s Exodus February 22, 2014

Aaron Paul has started doing publicity for Need for Speed, the car-race movie that opens next month. And along the way he has started to say a thing or two about Ridley Scott’s Exodus and the character he plays within it. Speaking to the website Movies with Butter, Paul said Joshua “is definitely a little bit different than Jesse Pinkman,” the character Paul played on Breaking Bad, but he “also has a lot of inner turmoil, a lot of anger. He’s just ready to fight back.” Comparing the work environments on his two biggest films to date, Paul said Need for Speed was “massive and so much fun, but then you go to a Ridley Scott biblical epic and you’re surrounded by 200 camels and elephants. There may be a couple cheetahs and you’re like what is happening? Everyone looks like they’re walking straight out of the bible. It was epic.” He also commented on the size of the crew: “There’s about 600-700 crew members. It’s impossible to meet everybody. Then you don’t remember if you had met the person and you feel bad.” The film, which stars Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton as the Pharaoh and Ben Kingsley as Joshua’s father Nun, comes out December 12.
