RJ Mitte Says He’s Not in the ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie, but He Has an Idea for Walt Jr
We still don’t know much about the “Breaking Bad” movie that is reportedly a sequel following the events of the original series. But sadly, Walter White’s son, aka Flynn, will not be in it.
That, at least, is according to actor RJ Mitte, who says he’s “not a part of” the film that the Albuquerque Journal reported may be code-named “Greenbriar.” It’s a shame, because Mitte envisioned a future for Flynn in which the character has now joined the DEA and is committed to finding out what happened to his uncle Hank.
“Walt escapes capture, Jesse came back to Walt after the whole shootout, Walt and Jesse disappear for five years, and Walt Jr. is still living with his sister, almost in like DEA housing,” Mitte told TheWrap, while also sharing his involvement as a judge in the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge. “Then Walt Jr. pretty much joins the DEA and is hunting after his father. He kind of takes Hank’s role where Hank left off. My idea is that he’s trying to go out, find what happened to Hank and go after Jesse and Walt.”
The show’s star, Bryan Cranston, has reiterated that Walter White is, in fact, dead, but it’s not clear if Flynn would necessarily know that. Things ended poorly between Flynn and his parents, with Flynn refusing to go by the name Walt Jr. after learning of Walter White’s criminal secrets and then accusing his mother Skyler of being just as bad for her involvement in money laundering. What’s more, Flynn is the only major character on the show who never met Jesse Pinkman.
News broke last year that “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan was developing a sequel, with Slashfilm reporting that it would center around Aaron Paul’s Jesse.
Mitte, like his character, has cerebral palsy and took the role on “Breaking Bad” when he was just 13. Though he insists he’s not involved and doesn’t know anything beyond what has been reported, he’s on board if asked.
“Of course I would be interested in being a part of it. I miss being part of a job that actually pays well,” Mitte said. “It’s been an iconic part of my life. I started that show when I was 13 years old and I finished it when I was 20 years old, and that was my whole career, that was my whole existence for those 7 years, and I miss that family. I miss those people. It would be great to be a part of that.”
