Aaron Paul says he’s had “serious talks” with producers about appearing in the Breaking Bad spinoff series currently in the works, where he could again play the low-level drug dealer Jesse Pinkman.

Paul’s career saw a breakthrough with Breaking Bad and he says he’s eager to work with creator Vince Gilligan in the upcoming series, reports the Associated Press.

“Anything Vince is involved with, I’m there,” Paul said in an interview while promoting the upcoming movie Need For Speed. “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.”

The critically acclaimed Breaking Bad series ended after five seasons last year, and Gilligan, the show’s creator, is looking to draw on the show’s roster of talents for his new series about a shyster lawyer. Bob Odenkirk will reprise his role as lawyer Saul Goodman in show set to premiere in November on AMC.
