Aaron Paul Reprises Series Role

On Tuesday, a trailer dropped for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie that’s bound to get fans of the show psyched and ready for more.

Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) is sitting on a couch in a living room as Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) is setting up a camera.

Hank instructs Jesse:

“Just tell us everything you remember. Any business dealings. Any personal dealings. Any criminal activity you are a witness or party to. Anything and everything. Just tell us your story.”

At this point, “Enchanted” by Chloe x Halle kicks in and fans are reminded of highlights from the AMC series, including Jesse and Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in their garden chairs out in the desert from the early days. When Jesse first meets Jane (Krysten Ritter), her death, Jesse and Walter’s move to the secret lab below the laundromat, the death of Gale (David Costible). The song wraps as a Jesse makes his escape from the compound in an El Camino.

Here it is:

Last week, the actor took to Instagram to share a cryptic picture of himself in character as Jesse:

This wee refresher arrives just over two weeks after fans learned that the long-rumoured follow-up film was actually coming this fall. At the time, Netflix shared a teaser showcasing Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) in a police interrogation room.

He discusses what he knows about Jesse and his unwillingness to help them:

And talking of Skinny Pete, “What about Badger?” I hear you ask. Well, Matt Jones is set to reprise his role of Brandon Mayhew aka Badger for the upcoming movie. Jones appeared in a number of episodes for the series across its five seasons, even appearing in the series finale alongside Baker’s Skinny Pete.

The film is written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad. The movie is produced by Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, Diane Mercer and Paul, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

As the aforementioned clips showcase, the story follows Jesse after the events of the series and death of Walter White.

This should be great, I can’t wait to see it. In Vince we trust!

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will stream globally on Netflix from Friday, Oct. 11th.
