Bryan Cranston Says He'd Love To Appear As Walter White In 'Better Call Saul', But There's A Catch

It's been three long years since the final episode of Breaking Bad aired, and ever since we've been slipping down a Walter White-less spiral.

Thankfully, last year Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad, gave us Better Call Saul - a spin-off prequel series that focused on the much loved character and 'criminal lawyer' Saul Goodman.

The first episode aired in February, 2015, and ever since people have been crying out for appearances from Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, and Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

Cranston has not been shy about him being a fan of the spin-off show, and has now said that he'd definitely be up for making an appearance. However, there's a catch. There's always a fucking catch.

Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, Bryan revealed that he'd love to appear on Better Call Saul, but would hate to be clued in on all the spoilers, ruining the show for him as a fan.

He said: "I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role. I was the guy coming off Malcolm in the Middle.

"If they were to call me and say, 'We have this idea, we'd like...,' I would say, 'Yes, you don't have to finish the pitch. I'm there, what do you want me to do?'.

"I'm a fan of the show and in order to direct, I need to know what no fan knows; and there's a part of me that says that would kind of kill it for me as a fan to peek behind the curtain, so I don't know if I am or not."

Sacrifice the spoilers Bryan, we all need some fresh Walter White in our lives. If Skyler White could be kept out of it though, that'd be great. She became far too annoying.

Anyway, I'm off to watch the entire box set of Breaking Bad and forget about life for the next week.
