Aaron Paul wants to reprise his character from "Breaking Bad" in a new series. The actor is in talks with Vince Gilligan about appearing in his "Better call Saul" spinoff. According to the Austin American-Statesman on Feb. 28, he is very interested in the prequel.
Paul says he’d had “serious talks” with “Better Call Saul” co-creator Vince Gilligan about returning to his character, a low-level drug dealer before he linked up with Bryan Cranston’s Walter White to produce methamphetamine.
Aaron Paul co-starred with Bryan Cranston in the five-season Emmy Award winning series on AMC. Gilligan hopes that many characters from the show will at least make cameos. It is currently unknown if Cranston will appear, but Dean Norris, who played DEA agent Hank Schrader is definitely out.
"Better Call Saul" is going to be a prequel to "Breaking Bad" starring Paul and Cranston's very odd and questionable lawyer, Saul Goodman, played brilliantly by Bob Odenkirk. it is rumored to focus on the events leading up to when Saul became Walter White and Jesse's criminal attorney on retainer. Pinkman was but a low-level dealer at that point, so he could find a place in the series.
Aaron Paul was nominated four times and won two Primetime Emmys for his work on "Breaking Bad." Since the show ended in 2013, Paul has been very busy with his film career. He is slated to appear in no less than 6 new movies in 2014.
