Jesse Plemons said lying about the existence of the Breaking Bad movie was fun.
For the longest period of time, the only thing you could hear coming from the people involved in the making of the highly anticipated 'Breaking Bad' movie was the lie, saying it was not happening. The writer and director of the movie, the cast all said the same thing, they were not involved in the making of the movie, and there is no film to speak of.
They went to great lengths to protect the secrecy of the film, and when the time neared to release it to the masses, then people started to leak stuff for the first time. Finally, we go to the trailer, which revealed the movie (which was not being made) would be released on 11 October 2019.
When the movie finally arrived on Netflix, there were a plethora of old characters making a cameo in the film and none better than the actor Jesse Plemons who played the character of 'Todd' in the movie. (Spoiler Alert!) He died in the series in the final episode of the show, and here he was back as a flashback, but the character's presence was felt in the real world.
Jesse was in 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' when the actor was asked by Seth about all the secrecy around the movie. Todd actor Jesse said, “It was really strange at the beginning to flat out lie to strangers repeatedly. And then, you kind of get used to it. It started to become more and more fun; I have to say. Nope! Not me, not in that.”
Well, he was in the movie, and he did a fantastic job of returning to a character he played about six years ago. But Jesse was also surprised people did not figure out about the movie before it came out.

“I have no idea how it didn’t surface,” he explained. “There was one day in particular where we were filming in downtown Albuquerque, driving around in Todd’s car, Jesse was in the passenger seat. know there was a guy that was like, ‘Oh s—t, that’s Todd,’ and people were filming and somehow I guess it just didn’t get traction online.”
It was a nice surprise when Jesse Plemons appeared on screen in 'El Camino,' and we are thankful the surprise was not ruined by people filming in Albuquerque. The movie was great because people did not know what to expect and at the end of the day, it was a great film, with great actors playing extraordinary characters and finally provided us with the answer of what happened to Todd after the escape from the pit.
