'Breaking Bad's' Bryan Cranston to return in 'Better Call Saul'

According to Liberty Voice on Friday, "Godzilla" and AMC's "Breaking Bad's" Bryan Cranston was suggestive of the possibility of Walter White's return. But sources reported he will be returning in the prequel "Better Call Saul" starring Bob Odenkirk. It's also likely that Heisenberg may have survived the series finale after the five season run.

According to a Cranston interview, he said, even though White keeled over in front of some meth making equipment, "you never saw bags zip up" and the Golden Globe winner doesn't even know if the character will return for future projects. However, a few sources have reported that with the 24-episode season of "Better Call Saul"will indeed come a helping of Walter Hartwell White. Also, reports stated that this will be no "gimmick" either, that the return of the iconic pre-Heisenberg character will bring meaning to the "Breaking Bad" prequel.

As far as the future of the seemingly dead Walter White, this leaves one to speculate how he might make his return. Whether it be popping up somewhere on the opposite end of the United States or perhaps even South America to continue his meth making empire, one can only speculate. But rest assured, he'll be coming back in "Better Call Saul." with Bob Odenkirk playing the part of Saul Goodman, a sleezy lawyer who had done business with White in establishing his empire growth through personal contacts.

Other additions to the prequel will included Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in "Breaking Bad as well as the possibility of Anna Gunn's return to the cast. Saul's "fixer", played by Mike Ehrmantraut, will be coming forth to the prequel series as well. Also, another "Mike" will be thrown into the mix, Michael McKean. For those unfamiliar with McKean, he once played Lenny on the hit comedy series "Happy Days."

It's only speculated how fans may see Walter White's return to the show. He'll likely be younger and with a full head of hair. Chances are he'll be portraying Jesse Pinkman's chemistry teacher whom some viewers of "Breaking Bad" have seen the former student rummaging through his old chemistry results with "Apply yourself!" written in red ink. This is obviously reminiscent of the self reflection of Jesse's own abilities to become a successful meth making chemistry assistant. That being said, this doesn't eliminate the possibility of future flash backs and flash forwards that's popular with the franchise.

Cranston had also spoke of his defining moment when he first explored acting as a student. He talked about how he had his first onstage kiss with a woman that was so convincing that he thought she was into him. Of course, his short term crush was defunct when she rejected him in a patronizing fashion. It was only then he realized how convincing and believable how he he could convince the audience of the same thing.
