Epic sci-fi series "Westworld" already has a starry, sprawling cast, and it's adding yet another big name to its orbit for its upcoming third season.

Deadline reports that Aaron Paul will be joining the HBO show, in an undisclosed role. Though details are scant right now, Deadline's sources say Paul will be a series regular, suggesting that his character will be a significant addition to the ensemble.

Paul is no stranger to celebrated television, having won three Emmys (and securing an additional two nominations) for his role as Jesse Pinkman on crime drama "Breaking Bad." He also recently starred on Hulu series "The Path," though that show was recently canceled after its third season, which wrapped earlier this year.

"Westworld" shows no signs of slowing down just yet, though, securing another boatload of Emmy nominations this year for its second season. Though the series was shut out at last year's ceremony, perhaps the addition of Paul will sway Emmy voters to hand over some statuettes soon. (And the show may very well win some trophies this year, too, since the awards will be handed out on September 17.)

There's no word yet on when fans can expect to see the third season of "Westworld." Stay tuned.
