To this day Breaking Bad remains one of my favourite shows, and Walter White was definitely well played by Bryan Cranston. After its conclusion, AMC moved ahead with a prequel series called Better Call Saul which follows Jimmy McGill a.k.a. Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) prior to his introduction in Breaking Bad. There’s no doubt that Breaking Bad fans wondered if Walter White would ever make an appearance in Better Call Saul, and it turns out that Cranston has an idea on how that just might happen.
“I don’t know. You could [see me on Better Call Saul],” Cranston said. “I actually think it would be fun. I have not been approached by it. I know that [creator] Vince [Gilligan] wouldn’t do anything that would damage the overall brand that he’s worked so hard to develop on a stunt cast kind of thing. And then I think, well what if it isn’t?”
“What if it’s just a brush-by?” he said. “Just two guys in a market. ‘Are those ripe?’ ‘I don’t know.’ And we don’t even register that we knew each other three years before we see each other again. That’s life. It’s actually very honest that this happens. So the bottom line is I would do it in a second. If Vince wanted me to be on the show, I’d be on the show.”
It’s definitely an interesting idea, but I’d love to see more than just a brief cameo if Walter White was to make an appearance. For those who haven’t been watching, Breaking Bad villain Gus Fring (played by Giancarlo Esposito) is joining Better Call Saul for season 3, presumably to play a pivotal roll in McGill’s transformation into Goodman.
