Bryan Cranston Says He'd Play Walter White Again 'In A Second'

Bryan Cranston Says He'd Play Walter White Again 'In A Second'

***WARNING: CONTAINS BREAKING BAD SPOILERS (IF YOU STILL HAVEN'T SEEN IT)***

Bryan Cranston has said he would play Walter White again 'in a second' - which is pretty exciting.

To clarify, he meant it in a 'I'd bite your hand off' kind of way, not a 'stop nagging me I'm playing Call of Duty' kind of way.

The star of Breaking Bad could obviously not play the character in the show anymore, considering that the show has ended and how it ended. However, there is one more series of prequel show Better Call Saul in the pipeline, so perhaps Walter could make an appearance in that? Cranston is certainly up for it anyway.

Speaking to Collider, he said: "I would be in it [Better Call Saul] if Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, who are co-executive producers on it, wanted me to be in it. I would do it in a second.

"But it hasn't happened yet, I can tell you, and we'll see. I don't know. There's one more season to go and we'll see what happens!"

Hold on, he has to wait for Vince and Peter to ask him? I thought he was the one who knocks?

They have asked him to get involved from behind the camera though, but that hasn't materialised yet either.

Cranston said: "I have been asked to direct an episode every single season and it just didn't work out because of a commitment to doing a play or doing a movie or something, so I wasn't able to section out the times available.

"But I do love the show. I think it's a fantastic show."

Indeed, Vince made it clear in a previous interview with Collider that he's keen to see the 64-year-old take a seat in the director's chair.

He said: "I'd love to have Bryan direct an episode. I got to write an episode [of Breaking Bad] that Bryan directed and I was on set with him every day, and it was a wonderful experience.

"He's a magnificent director. He's one of the few directors who has a facility for the lightest comedy and the darkest drama. He's remarkable."

Whether Cranston will be involved in the sixth and final series of the show remains to be seen. For the time being, he's feeling 'lucky', having recovered from coronavirus.

Writing on Instagram, he said: "I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant.

"We can prevail - but ONLY if we follow the rules together. Be well - Stay well."
