FanBolt recently had a chance to chat with Breaking Bad stars Giancarlo Esposito and RJ Mitte during Walker Stalker Con Chicago and it seems that Breaking Bad fans haven’t necessarily seen the last of Gus Fring.
We all know how Gus met his untimely end on Breaking Bad, but with Better Call Saul rising in the ranks of AMC’s popular shows, it would have been a crime to not ask them about whether or not they’ll be involved with the prequel at some point, to which Esposito replied, “There’s always the chance.”
“I love [Better Call Saul],” the actor continued, “and early on they said ‘Would you, if we were able to find a place for you?’ and I said, ‘You know, I love these filmmakers so much, of course I would.’ I would very much enjoy going backwards in Gus’ life to the rise of Gus.”
Esposito even has his own ideas about what bringing Gus back should look like. “If I were to appear on the show, I’ve suggested to Vince [Gilligan, the shows’ creators) ‘Look, take it further. Let’s do a limited edition of the rise of Gus after I would appear, possibly, on Saul. I don’t know if that’ll happen, but I do hope so and there’s always a chance.”
So what do you think Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad fans? Would you like to see Giancarlo return as Gus and possibly even get a mini-series event dedicated to following the rise of Gus? We think it’s a great idea, but we’d rather hear what you have to say in the comments below!
