Charles Baker is back in El Camino as Skinny Pete.

In a teaser video for the film, Skinny Pete, Jesse Pinkman’s lifelong friend and former meth-dealing colleague, is being interrogated by police about where Pinkman is.

He says: “I don’t know what to tell you, I said like 500 times already. I don’t know where he is. I don’t know where he’s headed neither. North, south, west, east, Mexico, the moon. I don’t have a clue. But yo, even if I did I wouldn’t tell you. Cause I’ve been watching the news, same as everyone else. I see that little cage they kept him in. I heard about what all they did to him to make sure he kept cooking. So sorry, I don’t know what to tell you. No way I’m helping you people put Jesse Pinkman back inside a cage.”

Charles Baker also featured in US detective show The Blacklist and had a small role in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
