‘Better Call Saul’: Will ‘Breaking Bad’ Star Aaron Paul Make an Appearance?

Breaking Bad” fans have been asking the cameo question ever since “Better Call Saul” was announced — will Walter White or Jesse Pinkman make an appearance on the prequel?

Aaron Paul, who played fan-favorite Pinkman on the original series, tells Variety he hopes he can eventually guest star on “Saul.”

“We always have fun having that discussion — Vince [Gilligan], myself, Peter [Gould], the writers,” Paul said at Variety‘s annual unite4humanity charity gala. “We just have no idea how that would happen. But hopefully one day.”

Paul, who was honored at the pre-Oscar event with his wife, Lauren, for their work with her Kind Campaign, says he’s enjoying “Better Call Saul.”

“I love it,” he said. “It’s a little weird because it kind of looks like ‘Breaking Bad.’ It has somewhat of a little bit different tone, but I know everyone involved, and I’m not involved in it at all and it’s a little weird, a little sad, but it’s great.”

“Breaking Bad” executive producer Michelle MacLaren also told Variety that she’d like to see Paul and Bryan Cranston make a cameo on “Saul,” for which she directed an episode, but she doesn’t have much intel on the probability of a “Bad” reunion.

“Who knows what they’re gonna do, but it is a prequel, so [Paul] absolutely could,” MacLaren said. “I think it’s open to whoever Vince and Peter decide to bring in. I would imagine that everyone who would ask would say yes, but I have no idea what they’re going to do with it.”

    Jesse started Breaking Bad at 24 years old. Better Call Saul takes place six years prior, so Jesse is a Senior in High School right now (The first season of Better Call Saul). Walters Chemistry class was probably when he was a sophomore.

    But you could find Walt and Jesse in the hallway at the High School, hanging around a store front, or at the car wash.

    Okay, So I am great at puzzles. AMC should come up with a contest. Who ever can connect the dots, with different scenarios, of how to incorporate the two. Then the prize could be something like meeting the cast. We love Arron Paul !! The make up artists can make them look younger.

  4. the could because in the breaking bad series jessie suggested saul to walter when badger got arrested

  5. Warner Brown says:

    If they do cameos, I’d start with Jesse selling his wooden box for weed. Bongloads. He walks in late to his chemistry class, eyes bloodshot. “Sorry Mr. White” Our pre-Heisenberg Walt orders him to stay after class. Walt: “Consistent F’s, late everyday. You might not even graduate. Jesse, in my class..you haven’t been applying yourself..” *gravely coughs” – Cut.
