Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is going through serious withdrawal at the moment.
Since the actor developed a very strong bond with the cast and crew of AMC’s acclaimed series, Paul said he misses these folks every single day. Although he does try his best to keep in contact with everyone, it’s not the same as spending lots of time on the set.
“We’re all having withdrawals. It was such a beautiful, functional family that we didn’t want to leave one another, and we’re still very close,” Paul recently explained.
However, he isn’t just sitting around. The Breaking Bad star continued, “I’m just keeping busy. I think that’s the thing. I haven’t stopped since we wrapped. We had a little break for the holidays, which is nice, so that’s when I took my belated honeymoon, and now we’re doing all this, and then jumping onto another thing.”
If Aaron Paul has anything to say on the subject, then he will have a part in the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. Although Vince Gilligan previously suggested that certain characters might pop up in the series at some point during the show’s run, he hasn’t confirmed any details just yet.
“I’d better be in ‘Better Call Saul.’ I hope so. I’ve definitely thrown my name in the hat. That’s what’s so great about ‘Better Call Saul’ — it’s a prequel, so all the characters that had died in the past seasons can come back to life,” explained at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Aaron Paul is definitely staying busy after wrapping up the final season of Breaking Bad. Not only does the actor star in the upcoming action flick Need for Speed, he also has a major role in Hellion and the British comedy A Long Way Down with Pierce Brosnan.
Paul said about the upcoming Need for Speed movie:
“‘Need For Speed’ is going to surprise everybody. I think a lot of people are thinking it’s going to be this car film, but it’s not that at all. There’s no actual narrative in the game, it’s just superfast cars with the point of view of the driver: his point of view as his car blasts around. And, of course, cops chasing them. It’s just plain make-believe, pure imagination — it’s really, truly a blank canvas using really incredible supercars.”
The Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, which stars Bob Odenkirk, is slated to premiere on AMC this November. Are you looking forward to the new series?
