Bryan Cranston has finally confirmed he’s okay to reprising his role as Walter White, the unforgettable character from “Breaking Bad.” Fans have long dreamed he will appear in the prequel “Better Call Saul,” which depicts the beginnings of Walter White’s lawyer Saul Goodman.
Cranston was said to have nixed the idea of playing Walter White in “Better Call Saul” before, but it looks like he’s changed his mind. In a recent interview with “The Rich Eisen” talk show, Cranston said that he’d love to do the part again.
“I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role,” he said. However, he also pointed out that Walter White in this prequel’s timeline is far from being the Heisenberg that fans got to love and hate in “Breaking Bad.” He’s not up for stunt casting too. So in order to be pulled towards the guest appearance, Bryan Cranston has one request: “It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in,” he added, per Vulture.
It should be recalled that Walter White didn’t meet Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, until the second season of “Breaking Bad.” By then, Walter White’s world has undergone extreme changes as he rises to become one of the most prolific meth dealers. Prior to meeting Saul, he was a meek chemistry teacher, who has learned he’s suffering from lung cancer.
