Aaron Paul has shared his initial reaction reading the Breaking Bad script for the first time.
It has been six years since the Breaking Bad finale, which stands to be one of the most talked-about TV series finales of all time. Since then, the majority of the Mexican cartel have returned for the BB spin-off, Better Call Saul, starring Bob Odenkirk. One character that is yet to make an appearance, however, is fan-favorite, Jesse Pinkman.
As it turns out, Vinge Gilligan had other ideas for the character. Pinkman will be returning for a Breaking Bad spinoff movie on Netflix later this year. Gilligan recently dropped the first trailer for the film, titled El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Now, Aaron Paul has revealed his initial reaction to reading the script for the first time.
Speaking with The New York Times, Paul said: “I couldn’t speak for a good 30, 60 seconds. I was just lost in my thoughts. As the guy who played the guy, I was so happy that Vince [Gilligan] wanted to take me on this journey.”
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will land on Netflix October 11.
