Not only do older actors bring experience and wisdom to television, but they also bring an I-don't-give-a-sh-- attitude about spoilers and blab away because what are producers going to do, ruin their careers? Jonathan Banks was on hand at Sunday's 71st Primetime Emmys as a nominee for his role in Better Call Saul, and he without a doubt broke spoiler code on the red carpet when he was asked if he would appear in Netflix's upcoming Breaking Bad movie, El Camino.
"Yes, and they'll hit me in the head for saying this, but yes, why not?" Banks told ET Canada. "None of those guys hit very hard anyway."
First of all, we'd like to hear what Vince "Noodle Arms" Gilligan thinks of that, and second of all, that basically confirms what we had hoped: El Camino, which follows Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after the events of the Breaking Bad series finale, will feature flashbacks to earlier in the Breaking Bad timeline. Banks' Mike Ehrmantraut was killed in the final season of Breaking Bad, so unless he's playing a corpse or a ghost or a long-lost identical twin, the only way Banks would be in it is if we're going back in time.
That obviously means that no Breaking Bad cameo -- of which there are supposedly many -- is off the table, including one from the granddaddy of meth himself, Walter White (Bryan Cranston). So far only Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger (Matt Jones) have been confirmed to appear in El Camino.
Let's just try to act surprised, OK?
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie premieres Friday, Oct. 11 on Netflix.
