WARNING: The following article contains possible spoilers for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, streaming on Netflix Oct. 11.
Jonathan Banks, who played Mike Ehrmantraut on both Breaking Bad and the series' spin-off Better Call Saul, has revealed he will reprise his role for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
While speaking with ET Canada on the red carpet at the 71st Emmy Awards, Banks was asked if he would be appearing in El Camino. "Yes," he softly replied. "They'll hit me in the head for saying this. But yes, why not? I mean, none of those guys hit very hard anyway."
While Mike Ehrmantraut seemingly died in his last appearance on Breaking Bad, it is possible the character will appear in El Camino during a flashback. Banks first appeared as the character in the final episode of Breaking Bad's second season. His last appearance was in the seventh episode of the fifth season.
The actor will join several other Breaking Bad alums set to join El Camino, including Matt Jones (Badger Mayhew), Charles Baker (Skinny Pete) and, of course, Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman).
Written and directed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie stars Aaron Paul. The film arrives on Netflix Oct. 11, with a later release scheduled for AMC.
