With Breaking Bad now behind him, it's time for Vince Gilligan to look toward the future. That's the focus of a big article on him over at The Hollywood Reporter. The hollywood report is a full three Internet pages of great stuff, but the last page in particular is chock full of great Better Call Saul details.
As you probably already know, Better Call Saul is the Breaking Bad prequel focusing on the lawyering adventures of Bob Odenkirk's Saul Goodman. The show will probably be mostly a comedy, but that doesn't mean there's no room for a little drama either.
And amazingly enough, the high artistic achievements displayed by Saul's parent show does not necessarily prohibit one of television's favorite cheesy pastimes: The spin-off cameo!
From the article:
Both Cranston and Aaron Paul, in addition to some of Bad's other actors, have expressed interest in making appearances, which Gilligan intends to make happen. "Personally, I'd have a hard time resisting putting all these guys in for a cameo or two every now and then," he says, smiling at the very thought.
This is exactly the kind of thing that I should narrow my eyes at, but I kind of think it's awesome. However they work these cameos out, if they even happen, I will likely meet them with nostalgic fondness rather than critical wrath. I just want to see these people again, no matter how convoluted their appearance.
In addition to cameos, Better Call Saul will also film in Albuquerque to look as much like Breaking Bad as possible. That's actually the more exciting bit of news. Even if the show has a different kind of mission statement, it will go a long way if it really appears to take place in the same universe.
