The three-time Emmy winner will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to the controversial religious movement with a wayward past. He's a husband (to Sarah Cleary, played by Michelle Monaghan) and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he's come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged.
Paul, best known for Breaking Bad, will also serve as a producer on the series.
The Way, which was developed by Parenthood showrunner Katims and writer-producer Jessica Goldberg, is slated to debut this winter on Hulu.
