Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul hints Jesse Pinkman may have a role in new Better Call Saul
The Better Call Saul guest appearance we’ve all been waiting for might finally be happening in the upcoming third season.
Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, told Ellen DeGeneres: “Maybe I already shot it? We just – or they just – wrapped the last season.”
He was responding to a question from The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘s host asking if he would ever show up in the spinoff.
He added: “Yeah I could be, I would love to be.”
In six seasons of Breaking Bad, Jesse went from small-time meth dealer to Walter White’s partner in the methamphetamine trade.
The character has a good chance at being included in the Better Call Saul spinoff, owing to the fact Jesse apparently knew Saul Goodman prior to Walt meeting him.
Not to mention, Paul said last April that he’d be totally up for doing the show if a convincing return for Jesse was written.
He told the Guardian: “All I can say is that we’ve had multiple conversations about that possibility, and if it were to happen it would happen for absolutely all the right reasons.”
“They wouldn’t want to throw Jesse in just so the audience could see him in the background. He’d have to really enter the story.”
We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Jesse Pinkman makes an appearance! Fingers crossed.
