‘Better Call Saul’: Aaron Paul, Bryan Cranston Could Appear in Show

January 15, 2014 Updated: January 15, 2014

“Better Call Saul” could see Aaron Paul, Bryan Cranston, and other “Breaking Bad” actors appear in the show, said Vince Gilligan, the creator of both shows.

“We are plugging away on ‘Better Call Saul’ and [executive producer] Peter Gould and I will be hitting up all these wonderful actors for cameos at some point,” Gilligan told reporters, according to the Huffington Post.

Gilligan made the comments during the Golden Globes show on Sunday.

He said, “We have to figure out how to work that out, story-wise.”

“Better Call Saul” has currently been said to be a prequel to “Breaking Bad” starring Bob Odenkrk as Saul Goodman, who appears in the show.

The show will premiere sometime in November, AMC told Rolling Stone

“It will be Saul Goodman’s world, it won’t be Walter White’s, and it will have a different feel, even though there will be some overlap on the Venn Diagram that exists between Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul,” Gilligan recently said. “But it will have to succeed on its own terms as its own show. If it doesn’t, it won’t be satisfying, and satisfaction is the key word. We want to satisfy.”

The network has already created a website for the fiction lawyer, with Saul Goodman’s signature videos boasting how he can get anyone out of legal trouble. The website includes “testimonies” from a drug dealer and prostitute who tell potential clients how he got them out of jail.

“Breaking Bad,” which ended last year and was filmed in Albuquerque, followed former high school teacher Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston. White produced methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.

Odenkirk played their attorney who came up with money laundering schemes from his Albuquerque shopping mall office.

AMC has given few details on the upcoming spinoff nor have show creators said how much of it would be filmed in Albuquerque.

But the fictional website shows “Breaking Bad” characters bragging in video on the streets of Albuquerque about how the convincing lawyer was able to pull them out of jail

For example, one such testimony comes from Badger, a methamphetamine dealer on “Breaking Bad” played by Matt Jones, who tells viewers that Goodman got him out of legal trouble after undercover officers arrested him for selling drugs — a reference to an episode of “Breaking Bad.”

“And then, bam! Saul Goodman shows up,” Jones says in the video. “He’s like, get out of here cop, because of the Constitution.”

Within two days, Jones said he was back on the street and “burning one with my homies.”
