Could Walter White – Bryan Cranston’s phenomenal character from Breaking Bad – be coming back despite seemingly dying at the end of the hit series?
Last week on CNN, Cranston was asked by host Ashleigh Banfield if Walter was definitely dead: “I’m going to ask you, really, seriously, I wasn’t so sure that you died, I really wasn’t. Your eyes were open and I thought, ‘What if the police just take him into custody, he gets better, breaks out and just goes nuts?'” Cranston was asked by Banfield, “Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything,” he replied.
“Is he dead?” Banfield enquires, “I don’t know.” Cranston replied. Then in a last ditch effort, Banfield said: “No movie? No nothing? No Walter White ever again?”
Cranston smiled, looked at the host as he said “Never say never.”
And that was that, Cranston could well have just been messing CNN around… however, it seems there might be more to it after all.
The Radio Times is reporting that Cranston, or rather Walter, will be appearing in Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Caul Saul.
HollywoodLife.com are saying that Cranston’s character will “definitely” appear in either flashback or flash-forward scenes that will not be “gimmicky”: “With the new show coming and the possibility of flashbacks or flash-forwards, there is going to be something with Walter White,” a source revealed.
Of course nothing is known about the time period Better Caul Saul (based around the lawyer played by Bon Odenkirk in Breaking Bad) will be set in and depending on that, the appearance of Walter could be before his apparent death. Whatever they do, we’re confident it will be worth checking out.
Better Caul Saul is being developed by AMC.
