Sometimes you don't have to speak to make an impact. Just watch Aaron Paul in the exclusive clip up above from “A Long Way Down” and you will see what we mean.
The movie, based on a Nick Hornby novel of the same name, follows four individuals who meet while attempting to commit suicide at the same spot on New Year's Eve. The four folks-played by Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots, and Aaron Paul-end up opting to, at minimum, delay their plans for a few weeks and form something of a non-traditional family.
The particular clip above has them playing the famous “three wishes” game – wondering what they would each do if they were granted three wishes. Sadly, we don't hear from Aaron Paul's J.J. in the clip, but he does have a number of choice reaction shots, including the one at the end after Martin (Brosnan) has finished offering up his wish.
You don't need Paul to speak to know what J.J. thinks of Martin's wish. You also don't need him to speak to know what he think's of Maureen's (Collette) wish. Still, we do wonder if he has any specific wishes of his own or if he opts to not play.
“A Long Way Down” is currently showing on VOD and is going to arrive in theaters on July 11th. It is directed by Pascal Chaumeil with a screenplay from Jack Thorne.
