‘Breaking Bad’ Jesse the Meth Cook to play Joshua in Film

“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul is set to play the biblical hero Joshua in the upcoming film “Exodus,” directed by Ridley Scott and based on the epic story from the Hebrew Bible, Variety Magazine reported.

Paul, who rose to fame for his dynamic portrayal of Jesse Pinkman on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” will play the Joshua, who joins with Moses to lead the Jewish people out of slavery in Egypt. Following Moses’s death, Joshua then leads the Israelites across the Jordan River, where they conquer the land of Canaan.

Paul will be joined by the star of the “Batman” trilogy, Christian Bale, who will play Moses, as well as stars Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro, who will portray the parents of the pharaoh Ramses. Australian actor Joel Edgerton will play Ramses.

Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” is the latest attempt by Hollywood to bring the biblical story of the Jews departure from Egypt to the big screen. The famous 1956 film “The Ten Commandments,” starring Charleston Heston, is widely considered an American classic and is still featured annually on American television, coinciding with the Jewish and Christian holidays of Passover and Easter.

  1. The Bible, Exodus 39:1-2
    And from the blue, and purple, and scarlet wool, they made elaborately woven garments for officiating, for serving in the Holy, and made garments set apart for Aharon; as God commanded Moshe. And he [Bezalel] made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet wool, and twisted fine linen.

    Yechezkel 16:15-16
    “‘But you put your trust in your own beauty and began prostituting yourself because of your fame, soliciting everyone passing by and accepting all comers. You took your clothes and used them to decorate with bright colors the high places you made for yourself, and there you continued prostituting yourself. Such things shouldn’t happen, and in the future they won’t.

    Acts 7:40-44
    saying to Aharon, ‘Make for us gods to lead us; for this Moshe, who led us out of Egypt — we don’t know what has become of him.’ That was when they made an idol in the shape of a calf and offered a sacrifice to it and held a celebration in honor of what they had made with their own hands. So God turned away from them and gave them over to worship the stars — as has been written in the book of the prophets,

    ‘House of Israel, it was not to me that you offered slaughtered animals and sacrifices for forty years in the wilderness! No, you carried the tent of Molekh
    and the star of your god Reifan, the idols you made so that you could worship them. Therefore, I will send you into exile beyond Bavel.’

    “Our fathers had the Tent of Witness in the wilderness. It had been made just as God, who spoke to Moshe, had ordered it made, according to the pattern he had seen.

  3. Richard K.–f*ck you. I hope this Joshua movie is not another damned Christian production. And did you know that your 666 spells Tarsus (TRSW) the place of your religious founder’s origin, Ricky? Christianity was invented by Satan.

    It should be mandatory that every member of the Israeli government study Jewish History, the Torah, to better serve the Jewish people of Israel since they seem devoid of it bring us closer to doom. When Menachem spoke with his kipa on his head, the world listened and respected Israel. before and after him. the world laughed at Israel. How embarrassing.
