Bryan Cranston seems pretty convinced there's a place for Walter White in Better Call Saul, so start speculating. Saul, of course, is one hell of a show—praise be to the AMC gods. But the Breaking Bad spin-off, much like the highly watchable Fear the Walking Dead, has one tiny issue: fans can't stop chattering about the idea of bringing in characters from each show’s respective spin-off source. This may come as a bit of a shock to all the certified lames out there who don't keep up with the modern classics, but Breaking Bad's Walter White ends the series with a very low chance of survival (i.e. dude is definitely dead). But thanks to Saul's strategic setting, a Walt pop-in is very doable.
"If they were to call me and say, 'We have this idea,' I would say, 'Yes! You don't have to finish the pitch, I'm there, what do you want me to do?'" Cranston said on Tuesday's The Rich Eisen Show. "I'll do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and storylines and it wouldn't be something, 'Oh, isn't that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing?' It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative. I'm all in."
In fact, Cranston has already been offered a Saul gig of a different kind. "I have an opportunity to direct an episode of Saul and I'm debating whether I want to or not because I'm a fan of the show," Cranston revealed. "In order to direct, I need to know what no fan knows. I need to go back and they'll tell me what's going to happen leading up to the episode and there's a part of me that says, 'That would kind of kill it for me as a fan to peak behind the curtain.' So I don't know if I am or not."
Bryan Walter. Do it!
