Bryan Cranston is definitely on board to reprise his famous role as Walter White for ‘Better Call Saul’…
When ‘Better Call Saul’ first launched, many fans of the show wondered how many Easter eggs would be planted throughout the series from ‘Breaking Bad’.
Considering ‘Better Call Saul’ is largely a prequel to ‘Breaking Bad’, several notable characters have popped up over the first two seasons with a huge addition about to join the cast in season 3 as Giancarlo Esposito returns as meth kingpin Gus Fring.
Aaron Paul has even hinted that perhaps he’ll be back at Jesse Pinkman for ‘Better Call Saul’ season 3.
But what about Walter White?
Well according to Bryan Cranston, who played the science teacher turned meth cook to critical acclaim for five seasons, he hasn’t been asked to appear on ‘Better Call Saul’ but he would jump at the chance to do it, even in a brief guest spot on the show.
“I actually think it’d be fun. I have not been approached by it. I know that 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. Then I think, “Well, what if it’s just a brush-by? If it’s just two guys in a market. Are those ripe? I don’t know.” We don’t even register that we knew each other three years before we see each other again. That’s life,” Cranston told Moviefone recently.
“It’s actually very honest. It 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.”
Because ‘Better Call Saul’ is a prequel to ‘Breaking Bad’ and the lead character in the series, Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk) didn’t even meet Walter White or Jesse Pinkman until season 2 of the original show it might be kind of tough to figure out a way to work them into the current series.
There’s also the small problem that Cranston’s character, Walter White, seemingly expired at the end of the final episode of ‘Breaking Bad’ but he’s always speculated that the audience didn’t see him go out in a body bag so anything is possible!
‘Better Call Saul’ season 3 will debut on AMC on Monday, April 10 at 10pm ET.
