Aaron Paul may reprise ‘Breaking Bad’s’ Jesse Pinkman in upcoming prequel

Could Jesse Pinkman from “Breaking Bad” return to television? If things can be worked out between showrunners involved in the prequel spinoff “Better Call Saul” can work things out, Aaron Paul says he’s in, according to a March 1 post on People.

Paul says he’s had "serious talks" with the co-creator of “Breaking Bad,” Vince Gilligan regarding Paul’s addition to the cast of “Better Call Saul.” The spin-off will be centered on shady lawyer Saul Goodman played by Bob Odenkirk and will be set up as a prequel to the original hit series.

"Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," Paul said while promoting his new film, “Need for Speed.” "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 role of Jesse Pinkman put Paul on the map. He earned 2 Emmy’s for the role of the low-level drug dealer who rose to the upper echelon of the meth industry after teaming up with his former high school chemistry professor, Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

No word on whether or not Cranston could turn up on “Better Call Saul” or not. Dean Norris who played DEA Agent Hank Schrader has already said he would not be interested in revisiting his character. For him, that ship has sailed.

“Breaking Bad” ended its run last year, a year in which Paul got married to Lauren Parsekian.
