While appearing on Tuesday’s episode of The Rich Eisen Show, Cranston touched on the possibility of reprising his role on Better Caul Saul, the prequel to his Emmy-winning AMC hit.
“You know, here’s the thing. I owe [series creator] Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role,” said Cranston, 60. “If they were to call me and say, ‘We have this idea, we’d like ‘ – I would say: ‘Yes, you don’t have to finish the pitch, I’m there, what do you want me to do?’ “
“I would do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and the storyline,” he added.
According to Cranston, if White were to appear on Gilligan’s Saul, he’s confident it wouldn’t be “a stunt casting kind of thing.”
“It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in,” he said.
Meanwhile, while he hasn’t gotten the call to star on the show, Cranston revealed he does have the opportunity to direct an episode – but he’s feeling conflicted about it.
“I’m debating whether I want to or not because I’m a fan of the show,” he said. “There’s a part of me that says that would kind of kill it for me as a fan, to peek behind the curtain.”
“I know nothing about it other than what every other fan [knows],” he added. “I don’t want to hear anything about it, I want to watch it when it comes out and I’m tuned in.”

And while fans bemoaned the conclusion of Breaking Bad in 2013, Cranston surprisingly doesn’t miss it.
“I think the reason is because Vince Gilligan crafted what I think is the perfect beginning, middle and end to a story,” he said. “I want people to miss it, and I’m glad that they do, but I don’t want the feeling of fans to [roll their eyes and] go: ‘Is that still on? Oh God.’ ”
