BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Due to illness, actor Jonathan Banks had to postpone his scheduled visit to the Indiana University Bloomington campus this week, but he plans to visit in the fall.

The "Breaking Bad" actor was originally scheduled to speak at the IU Cinema on Wednesday, April 30, and host a screening of clips from his film and television career. Banks had also been scheduled to conduct an afternoon master class on Thursday, May 1, for students at the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance within the College of Arts and Sciences.

IU Cinema director Jon Vickers said Banks will likely visit in September, after he wraps up shooting for the prequel to the award-winning TV series "Breaking Bad," titled "Better Call Saul." Banks will reprise his role as former cop Mike Ehrmantraut in the spin-off.

In his 47 years of acting, this is only the second gig Banks has missed -- the last being the second act of "A Little Night Music" on stage in 1974.

Vickers said Banks apologizes for any inconvenience and looks forward to visiting the IU Bloomington campus.
