‘Better Call Saul’ Could Include Breaking Bad’s Pinkman, Fring–But Not DEA Agent Schrader

Better Call Saul, the upcoming Breaking Bad prequel, could include Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) and Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito).

The prequel stars Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman and Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut has been confirmed as on board.

Esposito told TheWrap that he would be open to the idea of dropping in on the prequel. He currently stars in NBC’s “Revolution,” but that show is expected to be canceled.

Paul said that he’s had “serious” talks about returning to Jesse Pinkman before his character produced meth with Walter White.

“Anything Vince is involved with, I’m there,” Paul told the LA Times. “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.”

It’s not clear whether White (Bryan Cranston) would be involved.

But it’s for sure that his brother, DEA agent Hank Schrader, will not be. Dean Norris, who played him, is set to star in the second season of “Under the Dome” on CBS.

“I don’t think they’ll let me do a little cable show,” Norris said. “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.”

Filming for Better Call Saul is slated to begin in Albuquerque soon and the series will premiere on AMC in November 2014.
