Bryan Cranston Game For Walter White Cameo In Better Call Saul

30 June 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since AMC issued the go-ahead on Better Call Saul, speculation ran amok over the possibility of Walter White popping up in Slippin’ Jimmy’s origins story; perhaps not as the marauding alter-ego we know and fear, but a pre-Heisenberg Walter White that was more concerned about cooking breakfast and teaching chemistry than climbing to the tip-top of Albuquerque’s drug ring.

Much like Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman, key creatives behind the spinoff series – namely Vince Gilligan – have stated before that it’s it’s really a question of when, rather than if Walter White will appear, and during a recent interview with The Rich Eisen Show (via ScreenRant), Bryan Cranston himself has declared he is “all in” for a cameo.

“I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get [the Walter White] role. I was the guy coming off Malcolm in the Middle. If they were to call me and say, »

Bryan Cranston on returning as Walter White: He’s ‘all in’

30 June 2016 2:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Say what you want, Better Call Saul is slowly turning into greatness. Just two seasons in and we’re already hooked. With the likes of Breaking Bad characters like Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks) and Tuco Salmanca (Raymond Cruz) already popping up fans are getting hopeful of a return of the ultimate – Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White, probably one of the greatest TV characters of the last 10 years.

Well, Cranston has been on the road on the interview circuit and the subject of Bb and a potential return to the prequel series Better Call Saul has popped up.

Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show Cranston said, “I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get [the Walter White] 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. »

Over its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has pulled in more than a few familiar faces from Breaking Bad. There’s Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks), of course, but also criminal power players like Tuco Salmanca (Raymond Cruz) and even random minor characters like Ken (Kyle Bornheimer).

Review: ‘Better Call Saul’ Coasts Across Finish Line in Low-Key Season Finale (Spoilers)

18 April 2016 8:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At first, “Better Call Saul” was a very good series, if a rather pallid, slow-moving prequel to its sire, “Breaking Bad.” In season two, the AMC program has developed into two very good series in one, existing in the same, barely overlapping space — the saga of Jimmy McGill, Bob Odenkirk’s ethically challenged lawyer; and Mike, Jonathan Banks’ grizzled former cop turned part-time enforcer.

As usual, anyone looking for a lot of pyrotechnics out of the season finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), co-written (with Heather Marion) and directed by Vince Gilligan, has misjudged “Saul’s” understated rhythms. But the show ended both of its parallel plots in rather tantalizing fashion, setting up another slow burn until the series returns — likely with another fleeting flash-forward of Saul, post-“Bad,” looking over his shoulder, before easing into its next phase.

Perhaps foremost, this season took two characters who »

9 ‘Breaking Bad’ Characters We’ve Already Spotted in ‘Better Call Saul’ (Photos)

18 April 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Better Call Saul” inhabits the same sad Albuquerque underground as “Breaking Bad,” so it’s natural that characters in the AMC shows would overlap. Ready to see how? (Spoiler warning: This gallery contains lots of details about both shows.) A few “Better Call Saul? faces are obvious, but others are deep pulls by showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. Sure, you knew about Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz). But what about Jim Beaver’s weapons dealer? Or Ken (Kyle Bornheimer), the ever-boasting stockbroker who annoys both Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn)? Lots »

Is This 'Breaking Bad' Character Returning in the 'Better Call Saul' Season 2 Finale?

13 April 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk shot down a theory that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston will return as Walter White this season. Oddly enough though, Vince Gilligan teased at PaleyFest last month, via The Hollywood Reporter, that they almost had a big Breaking Bad cameo in the Season 2 finale, Klick, which airs Monday, April 18 at 9 Pm Et on AMC. But he wouldn't say which character was being eyed to return. TV Line has discovered a unique tweet from Twitter user Sirena6783, who appears to have solved this mystery.

While apparently on vacation, Sirena6783 discovered that all 10 episode titles for Better Call Saul Season 2 may in fact be an anagram that, when deciphered reads, "Frings Back," referring to the iconic Gus Fring, played by Giancarlo Esposito in Breaking Bad. Since Better Call Saul takes place before the events of Breaking Bad, a Gus Fring cameo certainly wouldn't be out of the question. »

Did This Breaking Bad Favorite Get Cut From the Better Call Saul Finale?

13 April 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Better Call Saul isn’t quite ready for a game of chicken (or so it seems).

RelatedBetter Call Saul Renewed for Season 3

Though the Breaking Bad prequel has been quick to bring back both Tuco and, more recently, Hector Salamanca (played respectively by Raymond Cruz and Mark Margolis), evidence is mounting that an appearance by Giancarlo Esposito‘s Gustavo “Gus” Fring was scrapped from Saul‘s Season 2 finale (airing April 18).

In discussing Margolis’ encore as Tio, series creator Vince Gilligan shared that Better Call Saul had “a perfect opportunity for someone [else] from our Breaking Bad universe to show up” during its sophomore finale, »

'Breaking Bad' Favorite Talks 'Better Call Saul' Return: "I Hope They Keep Me Going for a While"

14 March 2016 8:04 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This article contains spoilers for Monday's episode of Better Call Saul, "Rebecca."] Ding! Ding! Ding! After keeping the Breaking Bad camera returns to a relative minimum in its first season, Better Call Saul has begun to bring the two worlds together in earnest this season. The returns started with Kyle Bornheimer's Ken in the second-season premiere, followed by Jim Beaver's Lawson and Raymond Cruz's Tuco on last week's episode.  Monday's hour featured perhaps the biggest cameo comeback yet, as Mark Margolis reprised his Emmy-nominated turn as Hector "Tio" Salamanca, joining Mike at a luncheonette to

‘Better Call Saul 2×04: Gloves Off’ Review

9 March 2016 1:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“That’s a bell you don’t un-ring.”

The secret to not living in a state of perpetual regret is, of course, to make the right choice in the first place. Witness Jimmy scrambling to correct his eminently preventable error, one that saw Kim banished to document processing in the basement of Hhm, and you have all the object lesson you need in playing by the rules over taking the path of least resistance. “You’re like an alcoholic who can’t admit he has a problem,” a deeply un-self-aware Chuck, so brittle from an imagined disease that his every motion crackles and crunches thanks to the foil he wears, chides his errant brother. He’s right, though. Jimmy does what he wants and then tries to paper over the cracks. To him, life really is one big episode of Let’s Make a Deal.

'Better Call Saul' Co-Star Michael Mando: Nacho is a "Peasant Who Wants To Be King"

7 March 2016 8:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This interview contains spoilers for Monday's episode of Better Call Saul, "Gloves Off."] Monday's Better Call Saul was a treat for Breaking Bad fans, culminating in a showdown between Mike (Jonathan Banks) and Tuco (Raymond Cruz), a head-to-head brought about by Nacho's (Michael Mando) desire to wipe out his partner in criminal enterprise. Mike, however, preferred to get Tuco sent away to prison rather than assassinating him. Since Tuco's a key part of Breaking Bad and Nacho is only mentioned once in dialogue (by his given name, "Ignacio"), that decision may end up being important.  After

Breaking Bad Star on Surprise Better Call Saul Cameo: 'Shooting It Was Vicious'

7 March 2016 8:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Better Call Saul got a blast from the past (or technically from the future?) in Monday's episode of the Breaking Bad spinoff. Mike (Jonathan Banks) was tasked with helping Nacho (Michael Mando) get rid of a problem he can't solve. And that problem is one very scary man in the Albuquerque drug scene, whom Nacho wants Mike to kill. Warning: Spoilers ahead for Monday's Better Call Saul. Tuco (Raymond Cruz) made his return to the series, with Mike opting not to kill the drug kingpin, but instead orchestrating his arrest by tricking Tuco into beating him in front of some cops. »

Review: Mike takes the 'Better Call Saul' spotlight in 'Gloves Off'

7 March 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Better Call Saul coming up just as soon as I'm here to get my brother's ink blotter... "That all ya got?" -Mike I occasionally hear from readers who wish Better Call Saul focused more on its other Breaking Bad alum, and on the higher-stake drug world of Albuquerque pre-Walt. As one put it in a recent email, "Why are the scenes with Mike so much punchier and emotionally involving than those with Jimmy?" I strongly disagree with the premise of that question, and think Saul has only gotten better as the show has embraced the Jimmy McGill of it all and slowed down its journey towards Breaking Bad-dom. The tragedy of Mike is perhaps greater because of its permanence, and because the sins he commits along the way are worse than what Saul does, but becoming Gene from Cinabbon is presented as a fate almost worse than death, »

Review: Jimmy pulls a 'Better Call Saul'-style stunt in 'Cobbler'

22 February 2016 8:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Better Call Saul coming up just as soon as you fetch my other solid gold blimp... "You're going to have to make a video." -Jimmy Because last week's season premiere had to devote so much time to unringing the Saul Goodman bell from the end of season 1, not much happened, plot-wise. Of course, there are very few shows, or creative teams, better-suited to devote an entire hour to a guy floating in a pool and hustling a jerk out of tequila money, so I've got no issues with "Switch." But "Cobbler" feels like the proper beginning of Saul season 2 — even though, ironically, it climaxes with Jimmy pulling his most Saul Goodman stunt to date. A lot happens in this one in both of Jimmy's worlds. Chuck returns in all his odiousness — and I remain impressed by how easily and convincingly the show reversed our sympathies about him and Howard, »
