All of the 'Breaking Bad' Cameos From 'El Camino' Ranked (PHOTOS)
9. Kenny (Kevin Rankin)
This member of Uncle Jack’s gang reappeared in a flashback sequence, but his lack of development in the series made for lesser excitement when it came to his short cameo.
8. Old Joe (Larry Hankin)
Old Joe may have been a fun face to see, but considering his small role in the original series, the reappearance wasn’t as meaningful as some others.
7. Mr. and Mrs. Pinkman (Michael Bofshever and Tess Harper)
Jesse’s parents appeared in the film, and it’s the first time fans have seen them since Season 3 of the original series. Considering their lack of presence in the show, their reappearance here isn’t such a big deal either.
6. Skinny Pete and Badger (Charles Baker and Matt Jones)
Jesse’s lovable friends Skinny Pete and Badger were among the only characters fans could anticipate seeing ahead of the film’s release. So, while it was nice to see them, they’re not making the top of the list since their presence was not surprising. But, there’s no denying that we teared up when Skinny Pete called Jesse his hero.
5. Ed (Robert Forster)
Ed — also known as the man who makes people disappear — made a pivotal and hefty appearance in the follow-up film. His ultimate role in helping Jesse escape is made even more meaningful in the fact that the star passed away the day the film was released.
4. Todd (Jesse Plemons)
As if we couldn’t stand Todd before, El Camino proved us wrong in one of the strongest cameo moments in the film. Todd’s scenes encapsulate the brutal moments Jesse was exposed to during his captivity, and Todd’s lack of empathy creates a chilling environment for all involved.
3. Jane (Krysten Ritter)
In a surprising moment, the film ends with a brief scene between Jesse and his former love Jane. Their conversation consists of allowing life to take you where it leads or carving your own path, with the latter being the better option.
2. Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks)
The film begins with a moment between Jesse and Mike in which they discuss fresh starts. Their onscreen reunion is layered with emotion considering fans’ knowledge of how things panned out for Mike and Jesse’s concern for the man when he disappeared. The moment sets the film’s tone and teases its ultimate ending.
1. Walter White (Bryan Cranston)
Certainly the cameo fans were looking forward to most, Jesse shared a flashback with his teacher, Walter White, and the conversation over salad bar selections turns profound. “You’re really lucky, you know that? You didn’t have to wait your whole life to do something special,” Walt tells his protege of their drug empire. But at the end of the day, fans know something even greater is hopefully around the corner for underdog Pinkman.
