Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston wouldn’t mind making a guest appearance on the proposed spin-off Better Call Saul. However, don’t start holding your breath just yet.
Now that AMC’s hit series has officially come to an end, everyone is eager for the return of criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Details about the show have been in high demand these days, though nothing solid has come down the proverbial pipeline as of this writing.
According to the folks at Digital Spy, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston could make a guest appearance on Better Call Saul at one point or another. How writers would work his character into the storyline is still up in the air for the moment.
“I would definitely do any appearance on the show. If it made sense, sure absolutely. We’ll see,” Cranston recently explained to Access Hollywood.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan recently told The Hollywood Reporter that Better Call Saul would mostly likely follow in the same vein as its predecessor. Gilligan also suggested that Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston might make an appearance in the series.
“We’re both [Gilligan and producer Peter Gould] one-hour drama guys. So we figured, ‘Why not shoot Saul in the same way?’Let’s shoot it in Albuquerque, let’s get as much of the crew back together as possible, and let’s do it the way we did it before so that it will be of a piece with that pre-existing fictional universe that we had so much fun creating,” the series creator revealed.
As for Pinkman and White: “Personally, I’d have a hard time resisting putting all these guys in for a cameo or two every now and then.”
Breaking Bad writer and co-executive producer Peter Gould recently told Yahoo! TV that Better Call Saul might spend a fair amount of time in the courtroom. Gould added that he’s been spending a fair amount of time observing actual cases in recent days.
The writer explained:
“He looks like a clown… He dresses in a ridiculous way, he’s got billboards, he’s got ridiculous ads, but he is a shrewd customer. If you listen, most of his advice to Walt over the years in the show was really good advice. If Walt had listened to Saul a little bit more, I think the show would have gone very differently and probably would not have been as exciting.”
Do you think Walter White and Jesse Pinkman should appear on the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul?
