Jesse Plemons Talks Todd


When I auditioned, I had no idea about the acts Todd would commit, so it was pretty easy to like the guy in the beginning because he was so polite. When he killed Drew Sharp, it was utter shock.


Did Vince Gilligan or any of the writers talk to you about that turning point for Todd?Oh, yeah, Vince and I talked. Once I read that script, it made so much sense how all the writers had been dealing with me with trepidation, because they knew what was coming and I didn’t [laughs]. Vince was there for the train heist and he told me a great story that gave me a place to build off of. He said, “You know when you’re driving and a raccoon wanders out into the street? If you swerve to avoid it, you’ll go off the road, so you just hit it.” I was like, “Okay, that makes total sense.” Am I gonna go down, or is the raccoon going down? That raccoon had to go down.
