Jonathan Banks has a great friend in "Breaking Bad" co-star Aaron Paul who likely wanted to help bring some positive publicity to his new television show, "Better Call Saul" by releasing a picture of Jonathan Banks on his Instagram page. The picture is hilarious as it has the tough-guy actor wearing a white robe while relaxing on a white chair with a party 'cone' hat on the top of his bald head, a fork in one hand, a piece of cake in the other and a grumpy, tried look on his face.
If ever there was a picture that is the exact opposite of the tough-guy persona that Jonathan Banks has created for himself in his film career than this is the picture and it has the social media fans of "Breaking Bad" and in particular those of Jonathan Banks laughing hilariously.
The picture has also attracted the attention of entertainment insiders and agents who note how impactful the picture has been for this talented actor. It has been almost two years since he left "Breaking Bad" and since then he has been involved in several projects including the television series "Community" in 2014. Yet this picture showing Jonathan Banks far removed from his regular 'tough' man role has resulted in people looking into his career and wanting to know about his upcoming projects.
The move was brilliant in that fans and entertainment insiders are talking about his upcoming role in the film "Horrible Bosses 2" which comes out in November 2014 and his role as a criminal lawyer Mike Ehrmantraut in the 2014 television series "Better Call Saul" which he is currently in the process of filming. The series is a comedy/crime drama and revolves around his time leading up to him establishing his strip mall law office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
When an actor needs to bring attention to his upcoming projects don't worry about finding a marketing firm. Instead have one of your acting colleagues to upload a funny picture of yourself to their social media page and once people learn of the picture they will start enquiring about what the actor is doing in their career. It is a strategy that seems to have worked for Jonathan Banks.
