'Smashed': Nick Offerman, Aaron Paul In Talks

Aaron Paul's current gig has him cooking up crystal meth, but it looks like he'll be making a little detour for alcoholism.

Variety reports that the "Breaking Bad" star is in talks to join the indie dramedy, "Smashed," a film about a couple who bond over their shared addiction to booze. Things go awry, however, when the wife decides to sober up and go to AA meetings.

"Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman is also in talks to join the film; he would, quite hilariously, play an assistant principal at the school where Paul's character teaches.

There's just something about Paul and dark roles; he just wrapped up filming "Right Angle," a drama about a fast-living salesman who becomes a paraplegic. As for Offerman, he'll next appear in the Spanish language Will Ferrell comedy, "Casa de Mi Padre," and then the comedy, "Gay Dude," with wife Megan Mullally.
