Who is Jonathan Banks?

With his droopy eyes and laid-back demeanor, Jonathan Banks was a staple in a number of American crime drama series, the most famous of which include Breaking Bad which debuted in 2009, Better Call Saul in 2015, and Wiseguy in 1987. He worked on a wide variety of cop films, from serious action dramas to comedy cop films such as 48 Hrs. and Beverly Hills Cop. Still, out of all these roles, it was his role as Mike Ehrmantraut, a former policeman turned hitman in Breaking Bad that led him to widespread television fame. To date, Jonathan Banks has received a huge number of nominations as an outstanding supporting actor. He has starred with the best Hollywood actors including the likes of Liam Neeson in the film Commuter. He has also done some voice acting, one of the most memorable is in Incredibles 2 where he played Rick Dicker, a government agent.

For his most recent role, he is moving away from the cop film genre and to something completely different! He has just been signed for an Apple TV exclusive sci-fi conspiracy thriller, Constellation. There are very few details about it just yet, but if his past roles are anything to go by, we just know that it is going to be epic!
