It looks like we may really not have seen the last of Jesse Pinkman just yet. Aaron Paul has reportedly been in serious talks to reprise his role as Jesse in the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off prequel, Better Call Saul, which focuses on Bob Odenkirk's lawyer characer Saul Goodman before he ever met Walter White (Bryan Cranston). The Associated Press reports:
"Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," Paul said in an interview while promoting the upcoming "Need For Speed" movie. "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."
While Paul might feel positively about the spin-off, the same can't be said about Hank Schrader himself. Apparently, actor Dean Norris expressed apprehension towards returning as the ill-fated DEA agent.
“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.”
As previously reported, Jonathan Banks has jumped on board as a series regular to play, Mike Ehrmantraut.
Better Call Saul is slated to air in November. Until then, check out Saul Goodman's website here and give him a call if you need a shady lawyer to get you out of a shady situation.
