LOS ANGELES, June 29 (UPI) — Bryan Cranston is open to reprising his role as high school teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White on AMC’s “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul.”
“You know, here’s the thing. I owe [series creator] Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role,” the actor said on “The Rich Eisen Show” Tuesday when asked if he would like to appear on the series.
“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,?'” he continued.
“I would do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and the storyline.”
According to Cranston, he believes his signature television role is in good hands and confident that White’s appearance on “Better Call Saul” wouldn’t be seen as a “stunt casting kind of thing.”
“It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in,” he said.
