Breaking Bad - Aaron Paul In Talks To Reprise Breaking Bad Character In Series Spin-off

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is in "serious talks" to reprise his role in the hit Tv drama for the show's upcoming spin-off series, Better Call Saul.

Show co-creator Vince Gilligan has been working on a prequel based on the dodgy dealings of lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, and Paul reveals he has been invited to reunite with his old co-stars as troubled youth Jesse Pinkman.

His character will be portrayed as a low-level drug dealer before he joined forces with his high school chemistry teacher-turned-drug lord Walter White (Bryan Cranston).

He tells the New York Daily News, "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."

Paul won't be the only familiar face making an appearance on Better Call Saul - Jonathan Banks, who played private investigator Mike Ehrmantraut, has also signed on for the series.

It is not yet known if Cranston will also return, but Dean Norris, who was cast as his onscreen brother-in-law and drug enforcement agent Hank Schrader, will not be part of the reunion.

He says, "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."

Better Call Saul is due to debut on America's Amc network in November (14), a year after Breaking Bad's fifth and final season aired on Tv.
