I was born in Washington DC and grew up in Chillum Heights (Prince George’s County) before moving to MoCo, where I graduated from Northwood High School in 1966. My first notable film roles were in Airplane!, 48 Hours, and Beverly Hills Cop in the early 80s. In 1987, I got a break on television and earned a Primetime Emmy nomination for my role in Wiseguy.
My most popular role has arguable been that of Mike Ehrmantraut, a former police officer turned private investigator, in Breaking Bad. I reprised the role in Better Call Saul and in the sequel film– El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Who Am I? I’m Jonathan Banks.
