I won’t let you get away again.
“I love Jesse. I loved playing him, I miss him. My favourite job hands down – and I think I can speak for everyone involved – was Breaking Bad. Everyone involved, from top to bottom, we were all running to work. We couldn’t wait to get there, we were all very proud to be a part of it. It was so good.”
This would seem a sure sign that Paul had signed on for Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff that Gilligan is currently shooting in New Mexico. Indeed, previous interviews have quoted him as saying he is on board, but he now claims he isn’t. Was there some drama behind the scenes? “I wish I could tell you something exciting, but honestly there is nothing happening with me and that show.” And then, keeping all bases covered: “I would love to be a part of it. Who knows if or when that’s going to happen, but that’s definitely out in the open in the writers’ room.”
