Aaron Paul returns as Jesse Pinkman in a first look at the Breaking Bad Movie.
With El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie less than a month away from debuting on Netflix, Aaron Paul returns as Jesse Pinkman in a brand new look at the film. The feature published by The Hollywood Reporter extensively looks at the making of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie through the eyes of creator Vince Gilligan – and why the film risked bringing back Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman after the perfect ending in Breaking Bad‘s final season.
Aaron Paul also discussed the idea of coming back to the Jesse Pinkman role and revealed that he found it easy to jump straight back into his mentality for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. He also said that he empathised with the immediate reaction from the fans when it came to returning to the world of Breaking Bad and Jesse Pinkman. Aaron Paul explained that since it was Vince Gilligan who came up with the plot of the film, he couldn’t have turned it down. Read Aaron Paul’s comments from the interview with THR below.
“”I’m like everybody else on the planet — I think Vince and the rest of the writers really nailed the landing with the ending of Breaking Bad, and why mess with that? But it’s Vince we’re talking about. I would follow Vince into a fire. That’s how much I trust the man. I would do anything that he asked me to.It was so easy for me to just jump into where Jesse’s at mentally, emotionally, because I lived and breathed everything he went through and then some, and so, honestly, it felt like a part of me had gone through that as well. All I had to do was just memorize these words and then play them out when they yelled ‘action.'”
