Bryan Cranston 'All In' To Bring Back Walter White

Breaking good news

Just a week after Matthew McConaughey teased the idea of bringing back his True Detective lead role, Bryan Cranston has gone and stolen his thunder.

Speaking on American talk show The Rich Eisen Show, Bryan Cranston admitted he would be "all in" to join the familiar Breaking Bad faces cropping up on its spin-off show Better Call Saul. 

Cranston praised the show's producer and creator saying:

"I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get this role. 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'll do whatever they want because I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and storylines and it wouldn't be something, 'Oh, isn't that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing.' It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I'm all in."

Cranston also told Eisen he was offered a different role on the spin off which he explained his reservations about:

 "I have an opportunity to direct an episode of Saul and I'm debating whether I want to or not because I'm a fan of the show, and in order to direct I need to know what no fan knows, I need to go back and they'll tell me what's going to happen leading up to the episode and there's a part of me that says, 'That would kind of kill it for me as a fan to peak behind the curtain.' So, I don't know if I am or not."

For the good of the fans, we're hoping Walter gets his overalls back on.
