Aaron Paul, the man who got his big break starring as meth manufacturer Jesse Pinkman in "Breaking Bad" announced he is in  with show creator Vince Gilligan to star in the series' spinoff "Better Call Saul," Rolling Stone reported.

The actor was promoting his upcoming film "Need for Speed" when "Breaking Bad" came up. He spoke very highly of Gilligan and mentioned working with him again.

"Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," Paul said. "I ow him my entire career. And the idea of jumping into the skin of Jesse Pinkman again in his lighter days--because it's all a prequel--it would be fun." 

Earlier this year, Gilligan mentioned hope for some of the original series cast to congregate for "Better Call Saul." 

Paul has been in full support for a role, "Both Bryan [Cranston] and I want to be a part of that, if they'll have us." However, one cast member who won't be a part of the spinoff is Dean Norris, who played DEA Agent and Walter White's brother-in-law Hank Schrader on "Breaking Bad."

"I think that experience was that experience," Norris said. "I'm not a big fan 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."
