Aaron Paul, who you probably know best as Jesse Pinkman from “Breaking Bad,” was spotted on the North Fork Monday morning while filming scenes for the Hulu series “The Path.”
Rena Wilhelm, owner of The Weathered Barn, snapped the above photo of Paul and co-star Rockmond Dunbar filming in front of her Front Street shop.
A location scout dropped off his business card at the store several weeks ago, said Wilhelm, who is a fan of the series. She said she played it cool when she reached out to the scout and didn’t mention her love of the show or its star.
“I’m a huge, huge fan of Aaron Paul,” she told us. He and his wife Lauren Parsekian even stopped in her store and posed for selfies with Wilhelm and Lucharito’s bartender Sterling Smiley.
Stores on Front Street are open, but the street is closed to traffic.
“The Path,” which has been picked up for a second season, is “a classic family drama mixed with a psychological thriller set in the world of an emerging religious movement,” according to Variety.
Hugh Dancy stars as Cal Roberts, leader of a religious group called the Meyerist Movement that believes in a higher purpose. Aaron Paul stars as Eddie, a member of the group who has begun to question his beliefs. Michelle Monaghan plays Eddie’s wife, Sarah, who remains a steadfast believer of the faith she grew up with, Variety reported.
The first season can currently be streamed on Hulu.
There will be no parking allowed on the east side of First Street from Adams Street to Front Street, or the north side of Front Street between First Street and Main Road, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday.
Additionally, there will be “brief, intermittent traffic diversions” on Carpenter Street from eastern Front Street and Main Road to Bay Avenue and Carpenter Street from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., a post on the village’s website reads.
The production crew is expected to park their vehicles on the western side of the Adams Street municipal lot, near the IGA.
