Bryan Cranston hints at a role for Walter White in Better Call Saul
“If they were to call me and say ‘We have this idea'... I would say ‘Yes’... I would do whatever they want.”
Granted, it might not be as ridiculously popular, but Better Call Saul has done a damn fine job of living up to the lofty bar set by Breaking Bad.
With two seasons done and dusted, the prequel to one of the biggest TV shows ever has been a certified critical and commercial success and has fans eagerly awaiting what’s coming down the line in Season Three.
A number of characters from Breaking Bad – Saul (obviously), Mike, Hector Salamanca – are already involved in the Vince Gilligan-created series and there could be another pretty major addition to come.
Asked about a possible role for Walter White in Better Call Saul on the Rich Eisen Show, Bryan Cranston was very effusive (not for the first time), thanks mainly to the huge role Gilligan has played in his career to date.

"I would do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and the storyline," Cranston said.
"It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I'm all in."
Cranston, who is a huge Better Call Saul fan himself, also revealed that he is considering an invitation to direct an episode, so whether it’s in front of the camera or behind it, it looks like there’s a good chance he’s going to be involved.
Which is very exciting news indeed.
