The Stars May Finally Align…
As the fourth season of Better Call Saul edges closer (August 6 on Netflix in the US), the burning desire to witness Walter White and Jesse Pinkman enter the show isn’t as pie in the sky than initially thought.
“I think we’ve waited long enough.” Vince Gilligan.
In an interview with EW on Breaking Bad’s 10th-anniversary reunion, creator Vince Gilligan said he desperately wants to bring Walter (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul) into Better Call Saul somehow.
Gilligan said “I desperately want to see both of them on Better Call Saul. Peter wants it, the writers do, the actors do. It wouldn’t feel as satisfying if it was just a cameo or an Alfred Hitchcock walkthrough. I think we’ve waited long enough. We damn well better have a good reason for them to show up. I just hope we figure it out because I’ve got to hear, ‘Yeah, bitch!’ one more time.”
Aaron Paul commented that he is “happy to jump on board.”
Paul said “My attitude towards it is the same I had from when Better Call Saul first started. If Vince decided to put Jesse in Better Call Saul, it’s going to be for a reason, and that reason’s going to be very satisfying for me.
Cranston added that he would immediately say “yes” if asked to appear on Better Call Saul. “If he asked, I would just say yes. Vince takes such meticulous care of his characters and the story, and he changed our lives.
“Yes is the answer,” Cranston said.
