Aaron Paul Is In 'Serious Talks' For 'Better Call Saul,' But Dean Norris Is 'Not A Big Fan'

Some "Breaking Bad" actors are eager to jump the "Better Call Saul" wagon and reprise their characters in the early, pre-Heisenberg days -- but others aren't.

Jonathan Banks, who played Mike Ehrmantraut, was the first "Breaking Bad" cast member to officially join the prequel spin-off series. Both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have mentioned interest in making cameos in "Better Call Saul," and while there's no word on whether we'll see more of Walt, it seems like there's a strong chance for more Jesse.

Paul recently told the Associated Press that he's in "serious talks" with Gilligan about playing Jesse in the spin-off. "Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," Paul said while promoting his new film, "Need For Speed."

While it seems pretty likely that we'll get to see Jesse in his baggy clothes-wearing, small-time drug dealing days, don't hold your breath for Hank. Dean Norris, who played DEA agent Hank Schrader, recently said in an interview with the AP, "I don't think they'll let me do a little cable show."

"I think that experience was that experience," Norris said. "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."

Whatever, Hank. Go play with your damn minerals.
