It’s official: Lalo is going to be a permanent fixture on Better Call Saul. It was announced at the AMC Summit that actor Tony Dalton will be a series regular for season 5 of the Breaking Bad spinoff.
Dalton’s Lalo was a character that was first referenced in the season 2 episode of Breaking Bad when Saul Goodman was first introduced. In case you don’t remember, Saul asked Walt (Bryan Cranston) & Jesse (Aaron Paul) if Lalo sent them as he was kneeling over a grave dug by our favorite meth-dealing duo.
Saldana, who plays Gamora in the series, previously joined her cast mates supporting Gunn, who was temporarily fired when old and offensive online posts surfaced. The resulting uproar saw Disney elect to sever its business relationship with him.
But Disney, allegedly at the prodding of Marvel executives, later re-thought Gunn’s quick banishment and reversed it.
“I was very proud of Disney and all of the executives there,” Saldana said of the decision to reinstate Gunn in an interview with the New York Daily News. “They’re sending a very strong message that, yes, accountability is important. It is a must. We’re not going to surrender that moving forward. But when the opportunity presents itself where it’s just the first step, redemption must be the second step.”
Zoe has a new film coming out soon. Perhaps you’ve heard of Avengers: Endgame. But it’s unclear whether her Gamora character is one of the survivors of the Thanos cleansing, and she admitted that the partial scripts and multiple shoots have even left her puzzled as to the character’s final disposition.
The final season of Game of Thrones is right around the corner and Williams’ tenure as Arya Stark is coming to a close. But one thing has fans more intrigued than how it all ends for everyone’s favorite girl with no name. The people want to know what the heck is going on with The New Mutants.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Williams discussed several things, including the troubled horror X-Men experiment, which has wrapped principal photography but is still waiting to undergo reshoots. Much like her Game of Thrones character, the actress’ response was very blunt when the subject was broached.
“Who knows when the f**k that’s gonna come out,” she says. “Hopefully this interview will make everyone hurry up a little bit!”
Williams also pointed out that when she recently spoke to a co-star of hers from The New Mutants, he was as clueless as she was. That person being Charlie Heaton from Netflix’s Stranger Things, which has a new season on the way this July.
