One of the lead actors in “Breaking Bad” may land a new gig in the next Star Wars movie.

A website called The Wrap says Jesse Plemons, 25, who played the young gangster Todd on the AMC series filmed in Albuquerque, is a contender for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son in “Star Wars: Episode VIII.”

Plemons reportedly did so well in his first audition he’s been asked to read for the director next week.
