Vince Gilligan may be getting (some of) the gang back together! According to Rolling Stone, Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on “Breaking Bad,” said he was in “serious talks” to appear in show’s upcoming spin-off, “Better Call Saul.”
“Anything Vince is involved with, I’m there,” Paul said. “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.”
When we last saw Jesse, he had just escaped with his life after being enslaved a meth cook for those awful Neo Nazis. Where he was headed and what his life would be like now that he was free — from the Nazis and from Walter White — remained a mystery … but maybe we’ll find out after all.
“Better Call Saul” was originally conceived as a half-hour sitcom, but Gilligan ended up going with an hour-long show about Walt and Jesse’s slick and shady lawyer, Saul Goodman. I’m not sure why Jesse would want to be within even 100 miles of Saul after everything he’s been through, but if Paul signs on, I’m sure they’ll think of something. November, when the show is set to debut, can’t come soon enough! [Rolling Stone]
