Aaron Paul Returns For "Better Call Saul"?

By Garth Franklin Saturday March 1st 2014 12:28AM

Actor Aaron Paul has revealed he has had "serious talks" with Vince Gilligan about reprising his iconic role of Jesse Pinkman from AMC's "Breaking Bad" for the upcoming prequel spin-off series "Better Call Saul".

Out doing promotion for "Need for Speed," Paul tells CBS News that the prospect is appealing as Pinkman will be back to being a low-level drug dealer without all the torture and baggage of the events from 'Bad':

"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."

It's still unknown what other actors will be back, one unlikely one though is Dean Norris, who played brother-in-law Hank Schrader. Norris' commitments to CBS' "Under the Dome" apparently get in the way:

"I don't think they'll let me do a little cable show. 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."

'Saul' is slated to premiere in November.
