That BREAKING BAD prequel spin-off, BETTER CALL SAUL, has added a familiar face to join star Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman — Jonathan Banks will bring back tough guy Mike Ehrmantraut, according to Deadline.
The casting makes sense because Mike was introduced (in season two) as someone that Saul already knew and dealt with on a regular basis. I guess we’ll see how that business relationship began… or maybe Mike will just be one of those “guys” — as in when Saul says, “I know a guy….”
It’s certainly nowhere near as high-profile as some films due for imminent release (coughCaptainAmericasequelcough), but Paul W.S. Anderson’s upcoming Pompeii has a couple of things going for it: It’s based on an intriguing and haunting historical event, and it has a pretty terrific cast, including Kit Harington (GAME OF THRONES), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Kiefer Sutherland (24), Jared Harris (MAD MEN), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (LOST) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Matrix trilogy).
I’d like this movie to be a success because I’m a fan of Ms. Browning, but the rest of the cast also deserve for the project not to suck, however, looking at the trailer…
So who’s going to party like it’s AD 79 when Pompeii opens Feb. 21?
