“Breaking Bad” fans are in for a treat according to sources close to the “Better Call Saul” production. E! News reports that Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston are in talks to reprise their respective roles as Jesse Pinkman and Walter White in the “Breaking Bad” Spin-Off. The stars of the multi-award winning show is rumoured to appear on multiple episodes of the prequel series created by ‘Breaking Bad’ creative genius, Vince Gilligan.
We haven’t received any confirmation from AMC that the two stars will reprise their roles, but Paul himself confirmed that he spoke to Gilligan about reprising his role, he said:
“Anything Vince [Gilligan] 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.”
While no confirmation is available for Paul and Cranston’s return, fans can expect Saul Goodman’s trusted private investigator Michael “Mike” Ehrmantraut to reprise his role. The character portrayed by Jonathan Banks will join Bob Odenkirk who will reprises his role as Saul Goodman. Dean Norris, who played Walt’s DEA Agent brother-in-law Hank, said it’s unlikely for him to join the cast of the “Breaking Bad” spin-off due to his commitments on CBS’ “Under the Dome”.
“I don’t think they’ll let me do a little cable show,”
“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.”
The show is set as a “prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.” “Breaking Bad” writer Peter Gould, will executive produce the new show, while Gilligan plans to direct the pilot.
