Yeah, bitch: With unbounded enthusiasm, we're here to announce that Aaron Paul is going to be on Better Call Saul. It's not 100 percent confirmed yet, but Paul noted that he would love to team up with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan for the Breaking Bad prequel starring the one, the only, the amazing man with the amazing receding hairline, Bob Odenkirk. In an interview promoting his new film Need For Speed, Paul said "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."
Aaron Paul LOVES fun. When he's not Jesse Pinkman he's like the most life-lovin' dude out there, being nerdy in talk show interviews and Instagramming the crap out of his cute wife, because they are madly in love. All the warm fuzzies need to be tempered a little bit, though, because we want our "bitch" Pinkman back, so it's good news for everybody that he's eager to join Gilligan's reprise.
One Breaking Bad fixture we won't see in the new series is party pooper Dean Norris, who currently stars in the show Under the Dome on CBS. Of potentially making a cameo on Better Call Saul as Walter White's DEA agent brother-in-law, Norris was all poo-poo: "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."
Perhaps he's too busy collecting rocks (I'M SORRY, minerals).
Forget Norris, though, even though we did end up rooting for him in the final season of Breaking Bad. We have Jesse Pinkman, our goofy, well-to-do romantic meth head to look forward to. And what would an evergreen, more innocent Jesse Pinkman be like, before Walter White crushed his very body and soul? Let's take a look.
He was so sweet, he made sure to eat a balanced breakfast.
He played around like a kid at the go-kart track.
Wasn't afraid to cry over Sleepless in Seattle.
Our sweet boy gave vegetables the old college try, but they just weren't his bag.
And though he was terrible at it in a classroom setting, he possessed an insurmountable love and wonder of science.
Better Call Saul, featuring lovable wayward goon Jesse Pinkman, will premiere this November on AMC.
