Actor Jonathan Banks has been on screen for more than four decades, but he's best known for his role as Mike Ehrmantraut in the series Breaking Bad. Since the mid-1970s, Banks has worked steadily in a variety of roles on television, often as a guest star, but also in the 1981 mini-series The Gangster Chronicles (he played Dutch Schultz) and the action series Wisguy (1987-90). Banks has also been on the big screen, in movies such as Airplane! (1980), Gremlins (1984), Beverly Hills Cop (1984) and Dark Blue (2002). He often plays a villain -- as with his Breaking Bad character, a patient, murderous "fixer" who was in the show for its last three seasons (2009-2013). Banks then appeared as the same character in Better Call Saul, the 2015 spin-off of Breaking Bad (starring Bob Odenkirk).
