'Breaking Bad' Movie Will Bring Back 10 of the Show's Original Characters!

Aaron Paul is on the cover of THR‘s latest issue, speaking all about El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

In the interview, creator Vince Gilligan revealed that 10 characters from the original show will reprise their roles, and we know that Aaron will be back as Jesse Pinkman, as well as Charles Baker as Skinny Pete and Matt L. Jones as Badger. Here’s what else they shared…

Aaron, on what he learned from co-star Bryan Cranston: “The first couple years [of Breaking Bad] were really torturous for me…. I just didn’t want to mess it up, and so I stayed in that guy’s skin, but I learned from Bryan it’s OK to shake it off and wash up at the end of the night and just have time for yourself.”

Aaron, on reviving with his character: “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.”

Vince, on the idea for El Camino: “I didn’t really tell anybody about it, because I wasn’t sure I would ever do anything with it. But I started thinking to myself, ‘What happened to Jesse?’ You see him driving away. And to my mind, he went off to a happy ending. But as the years progressed, I thought, ‘What did that ending — let’s just call it an ending, neither happy, nor sad — what did it look like?’”
