Bryan Cranston Turned Up To The Set Of 'Better Call Saul'

Now that we're excited for Gustavo Fring to return to our screens in Better Call Saul, people obviously want more Breaking Bad cameos in the series.

So, it's pretty unfair that while filming was taking place for season three, that none other than Walter White himself, Bryan Cranston, dropped by.

Now of course if he were to have a cameo in Better Call Saul it'd be pretty under whelming because at this stage of Jimmy McGill's career Walt was nothing more than a boring high school chemistry teacher. Still, it'd be a big cameo.

In a behind the scenes video it was made perfectly clear that Cranston will not be appearing in the show in anyway, and that he was just there to see the crew he used to work with.

In the past Cranston has not been shy about him being a fan of the spin-off show, and has of course expressed interest in making an appearance. However, there's a catch.

Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show last year, Bryan revealed that he'd 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."

Like I said before, he'd just be a pre-Heisenberg Walter White, which is pretty boring. Let's just thank our lucky stars Skyler White is being kept out of it though. She became far too annoying.

As for Walter White's companion, Jesse Pinkman, it'd make more sense for him to appear in Better Call Saul.

We might be in with a chance of seeing that happen, too. Appearing on The Ellen Show to promote his latest project cult drama The Path, Aaron Paul hinted that he'll be reprising his role as Jesse in the prequel.

Paul played Jesse in Breaking Bad for five years, a stint that saw him win three Emmys. From there, Ellen naturally asked him if he'd be making an appearance in the prequel to the show.

He replied: "God, I hope so... Maybe I already shot the... They just wrapped the last season... Yeah, I could be. Yeah, I would love to be on."

Better Call Saul returns on AMC on April 10, so get it in your diaries.
