Ehrmantraut Lives!! Jonathan Banks Hired As Series Regular For BREAKING BAD Prequel BETTER CALL SAUL!!
My favorite “Breaking Bad” character is being resurrected for “Better Call Saul.” Jonathan Banks will joined the series as a regular, reprising his role as Mike Ehrmantraut.
"Saul: is slated to premiere in November.
Ehrmantraut, the former Philadelphia beat cop who became head of security for the Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant franchise, eventually became a partner in former chemistry teacher Walter White’s meth empire.
The new series from AMC and Vince Gilligan will focus on lawyer Saul Goodman’s life before he met White. Like Goodman, Ehrmantraut was in the employ of meth baron Gus Fring.
Which suggests to me that we may soon be hearing about some guest appearances by Giancarlo Esposito as Fring.
The role of Ehrmantraut brought Banks his second Emmy nomination (the first was for his work as bespectacled FBI supervisor Frank McPike, my favorite character on “Wiseguy”).
Banks, who also iced Axel Foley’s best friend Mikey Tandino in “Beverly Hills Cop,” is currently a regular on the NBC sitcom “Community.”
