Say what? Aaron Paul is super excited about a new gig– and he’s bragging about it big time! Is Jesse Pinkman getting a ‘Breaking Bad’ spin-off?
Oh my god… Bitch! Aaron Paul, who most famously depicted the ill-fated drug dealer Jesse Pinkman on AMC’s smash hit series Breaking Bad, is working on a “top secret” project. And so, when he went on Periscope on June 15, fans pretty much lost their minds when he said that the project was actually a spin-off show all about Jesse! However, don’t whip out your yellow hazmat suit just yet. We’ve got the real scoop for you!
On June 13, Aaron posted a photo on Instagram of the word “congratulations,” alongside a pretty thrilling caption. “Can’t wait to tell you what this is all about,” he wrote. “It’s top secret for now but you all will know soon enough. It’s a new gig that I am over the moon about. Thank you angel for sending this to me from across the country. Love you lots and lots.”
Immediately, fans began to pinpeculate that the new project might be Walter Whiter-adjacent. And then, Aaron decided to add fuel to fire! Two days after posting the Instagram, Jesse went on Periscope and actually said that the project would be a Jesse Pinkman spin-off. He said it!
Alas, the announcement was actually just Aaron having some fun (the sadist’s version of fun that is!). A few minutes after announcing the Jesse spin-off, Aaron clarified via Twitter that he was playing. “Sorry for the joke everybody. I love you all so much. Hugs and kisses.”
Didn’t anyone ever teach Aaron that that is not how you treat people you love? Well, we already know that Breaking Bad spin-offs are not actually out of the question (hello, Better Call Saul!), so whenever you’re actually ready to step back into the sad life of Jesse Pinkman, Aaron, we will be here waiting.
Would you want to see a Jesse-centered spin-off?
