Bryan Cranston Eyes Directing ‘Breaking Bad’ Spin-Off
Better Call Saul is already shaping up to be a highly anticipated television show, and now there’s news of Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston’s plans to direct an episode of the show’s upcoming spin-off series.
The prequel is based on the dodgy dealings of lawyer Saul Goodman and has been created by Vince Gilligan, the writer and producer behind Breaking Bad.
Aaron Paul revealed in March that he would reprise his role of troubled student Jesse Pinkman for occasional episodes but his co-star Cranston is not satisfied with simply playing his character Walter White once more – he wants to work on the show behind the scenes too.
He says, “If Vince calls me, I will do anything he wants. I hope to go back and direct an episode as well.”
Jonathan Banks will also reprise his role as Saul’s private investigator, Mike Ehrmantraut.
Better Call Saul is set to premiere on AMC this November.
