Bryan Cranston said he'll appear in Better Call Saul if asked

There are three universal truths that unite every single Better Call Saul fan. Number one: fuck Chuck. Number two: Ernesto is the besto. And number three: we-swear-we're-not-watching-this-to-see-Walter-White-but-oh-god-please-show-us-Walter-White.

Thankfully, although we have no answer to the fates of Chuck (fall down a well, please) and Ernesto (become king of the entire world, thank you), Bryan Cranston hinted today about the return of our favourite chemistry teacher slash meth cook.

Speaking to The Rich Eisen Show, Cranston confessed he'd appear in BCS in a heartbeat. 

 

“I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role. I was the guy coming off Malcolm in the Middle - seven years of playing this silly, hapless dad and he said 'He's my guy'," he said.

“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?'", Cranston went on.

Walter White

But the star admitted he was reluctant to direct an episode of Better Call Saul, despite being offered the opportunity by Gilligan. 

“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."
