[TV] Aaron Paul in Serious Talks to Appear on Breaking Bad Spin-Off Better Call Saul Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.28.2014
Jesse Pinkman may be back...
Aaron Paul has revealed that he is in "serious talks" to join the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. Paul was speaking with the AP in an interview to promote Need for Speed and when talk turned to his role as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, Paul dropped the bombshell news.
Paul said, "Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there. I owe him my entire career. And the idea of jumping into the skin of Jesse Pinkman again in his lighter days — because it's all a prequel — it would be fun."
Gilligan has said in the past that he is trying to get cast members from Breaking Bad to appear in the spinoff, which focuses on Bob Odenkirk's lawyer character of Saul Goodman. He told Rolling Stone earlier in the year that he may have problems doing so for scheduling, noting, "They're off making big movies and doing Broadway plays and whatnot, and that's exactly the way it should be. That is a high-class problem that we will have to contend with as we go forward with Better Call Saul, if we do indeed want to touch base with some of these characters."
However, that doesn't seem to be a problem for Paul, who told Details last month, "Both Bryan [Cranston] and I want to be a part of that, if they'll have us."
Don't expect to see Hank Schrader, though. Dean Norris said he wasn't likely to come back, noting, "I think that experience was that experience. I'm not a big fan of kind of revisiting something that has already been done. But I think it's going to be awesome. So I can't wait to see it."
