Fans of “Breaking Bad” are sad to see the series end for many reasons and Aaron Paul‘s riveting portrayal of Jesse Pinkman is one of them.

Not to worry though, the 34-year-old’s talent hasn’t gone unnoticed by Hollywood.

Paul will soon appear in the action flick “Need for Speed,” and based on the trailer for the video game adaptation, it’s obvious that the star has range beyond the meth dealer with the heart of gold he portrays on the small screen.

In the highly anticipated film, the actor stars as a street racer out for revenge after he is falsely imprisoned. The film also stars Imogen Poots, Kid Cudi, and Michael Keaton.

The two-time Emmy winning actor is clearly having an easy transition from the TV to film. In addition to “Need for Speed,” Paul is set to take on the dramedy “A Long Way Down,” opposite Rosamund Pike and Pierce Brosnan, as well as the historical drama “Exodus,” with Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton.

The final “Breaking Bad episode is set to air this Sunday, September 29th, on AMC.

“Need for Speed” hits theaters on March 14 2014.
