In case you missed it yesterday (which hopefully if you are as obsessed with Breaking Bad as we are, you didn’t), Jonathan Banks (aka Mike Ehrmantraut) has joined the cast of Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel. Banks will appear as a series regular. In Breaking Bad, Mike, a former police officer, worked as the Head of Corporate Security at Los Pollos Hermanos and as an enforcer for Gus Fring’s meth operation. He later became involved with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s meth business. In one of the greatest tragedies on the show, Walt shot Mike in the Season 5A finale.
There has of course been speculation about which other Breaking Bad characters may appear on Better Call Saul, but nothing has been released yet.
We are very, very happy to have Mike back on TV.
