Aaron Paul To Reprise Jesse Pinkman Role on BETTER CALL SAUL?
By Clarke Wolfe on February 28, 2014
Aaron Paul shot to stardom as the misguided yet lovable druggie Jesse Pinkman on AMC’s hit drama Breaking Bad. In five seasons, Paul picked up two Emmys and countless other awards and nominations for his work on the series.
While promoting his latest film Need for Speed, Paul was asked whether he would be appearing on the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. As we know, Paul told Details magazine earlier this year, “Both Bryan and I want to be a part of that. If they’ll have us.”
Looks like they might have him, as Paul was quoted by the Associated Press as saying he was in “serious talks” with Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan regarding his character’s return. Paul explained, “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.”
The AP also mentions that Dean Norris, who can now be seen on the CBS series Under The Dome is not interested in reprising his role as Hank Schrader, although he wishes the new series the best. Norris said, “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.”
