Bryan Cranston Says He Wants To Make An Appearance On 'Better Call Saul'

Bryan Cranston Says He Wants To Make An Appearance On 'Better Call Saul'

Walter White was an odd character.

In the beginning of Breaking Bad he was lovable and ultimately, we supported his venture as a Methamphetamine king-pin - basically because the American health system fucked him over.

However, as the series went on he became a power wielding, murdering, conniving psychopath. But for some reason, we all felt a feeling we couldn't explain when he died in the final episode. He was the perfect anti-hero.

Bryan Cranston also has unprecedented love for the character he played so well, and isn't shy about showing his undying love for Breaking Bad as a whole.

So much so, he's said that if Vince Gilligan were ever to reprise the role of Walter White for Better Call Saul, he'd jump at the chance.

"I would like to be part of that. Vince Gilligan and Breaking Bad changed my life. They presented me with opportunities I wouldn't have had otherwise. I am very grateful for that. So yes, if Vince Gilligan called me today and told me: 'I want you to be in Better Call Saul', I would say yes before he could finish asking me! It hasn't happened yet though. We'll just have to see how things go. I love this series. And I'm really lucky with how great it all went for me," Cranston told Konbini.

Given that Better Call Saul is the prequel to Breaking Bad, it's tough to see where Walter White would fit into the series.

It'd be in his pre-cancer days, meaning Heisenberg wouldn't even be a thought in the back of his mind - so chances are we'd just get a glimpse of the chemistry teacher dressed in beige. Nevertheless, it'd be an exciting addition to an already exciting series; which Bryan Cranston is also a massive fan of.

"I really like Better Call Saul. It's an atmosphere I know well: the city of Albuquerque, its suburb, the people there. It's something I'm very familiar with, but at the same time the story is very different. It's no longer Walter White who's the main focus, but Jimmy McGill. So I watch the show with a new perspective. When I meet Vince Gilligan, I beg him not to tell me anything! I want to experience the series as a true fan and not as an 'insider'. I like it that way," he said in a Skype interview with Konbini.

Until any of this happens, though, we'll just keep binge watching the entire series of Breaking Bad. It's never going to get old.

Well, apart from The Fly episode. That can always be skipped.
