Sunday was the premiere of “Better Call Saul” on AMC, a year and half since the finale of “Breaking Bad.” It was nice too see some fan-favorite characters from “Breaking Bad” return -- Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and even Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz) appeared in the premiere -- but the debut of the spinoff series had us wondering what has become of the rest of the original cast.
Here’s where all your favorite “Breaking Bad” actors are today:
The man behind “Walter White” has been relatively quiet since the show went off the air. Aside from his role in 2014’s “Godzilla,” the actor has had a slow year since the finale and has yet to return to television. However, 2015 will see him portray blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in the film “Trumbo,” as well star in the comedy “Get a Job.”
Aaron Paul, who played Jessie Pinkman, has been busy launching a budding film career. The actor scored roles in “Need for Speed, “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “A Long Way Down,” and “Hellion.” Paul also voices the part of Todd Chavez in the acclaimed Netflix series “BoJack Horseman" and has an adorably public relationship with his wife Lauren Parsekian.
Anna Gunn, who played Sklyer White, went from one television series to another. After the “Breaking Bad” finale, Gunn appeared in “Gracepoint,” the 10-episode limited run remake of the UK drama “Broadchurch.” Gunn played a local detective investigating the murder of a young boy in the small town. However, “Gracepoint,” which aired this past fall, was not renewed for a second season.
In addition to some film roles – “The Counselor,” “Small Time” – Dean Norris, who played Hank Schrader, landed a role in the hit television show “Under the Dome,” which will come back for its third season later this year. The actor also portrayed Ben Franklin in the History Channel miniseries “Sons of Liberty,” which aired in January.
Betsy Brandt, who played Marie Schrader, has been all over television since the finale of “Breaking Bad.” The actress has had recurring roles in “The Michael J. Fox Show,” “Masters of Sex” and “Parenthood.”
Famous for those “Breaking Bad” breakfast memes, R.J. Mitte, who played Walter White son’s Walter Jr., rebounded from the end of “Breaking Bad” with a role in the hit ABC Family series “Switch at Birth.” Mitte plays Campbell, a wheelchair bound premed student.
The "Better Call Saul" premiere continues tonight at 10 p.m. EST on AMC.
