Could we see Jesse Pinkman back on TV?
Hell yes, bitch.
Aaron Paul, who won two Emmys for his portrayal of prodigious meth cook Jesse Pinkman on AMC’s Breaking Bad, says he’d love to appear on Better Call Saul, the upcoming prequel spinoff featuring sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk.)
In fact if you read between the lines, it almost sounds like a done deal.
“I’m definitely up for it. I mean, I think we all are,” Paul said Wednesday in Toronto, where he was promoting his road revenge movie Need For Speed, in theatres March 14.
“I know Bryan (Cranston) said he’s up to do another little Walter White cameo,” Paul said. “We’re such an incredible family, we love each other so much and if we’re able to play these characters that kind of gave us all careers, then yeah, why not do it again.”
Paul said he wouldn’t be a regular character on the show – it would be maybe a one- or two-episode guest spot – but he’s definitely open to it.
But does that mean this is actually happening?
“Possibly. Honestly, I can’t really say,” he said. “If it happens, people will find out when they’re watching the episode. I mean, they’re going to keep it under wraps.”
Better Call Saul premieres this fall on AMC, starring Odenkirk and Breaking Bad’s Jonathan Banks, reprising his role as Mike Ehrmantraut.
