Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul has confirmed that he is in "serious talks" to join the show's spin-off series Better Call Saul.

The actor first expressed interest in joining Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks in the Breaking Bad prequel back in January.

Paul has now revealed to The AP that he is talking with creator Vince Gilligan about reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman.

"Anything Vince is involved with, I'm there," the actor disclosed.

He went on to say: "I owe 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."

Bryan Cranston has also said that he is willing to reprise his iconic role as teacher-turned-drug baron Walter White, although there is no word yet on if a deal is likely.
