Dean Norris is currently doing press for Jason’s Reitman’s Men, Women and Children, which is out in expanded release in theaters today. Which is great and all. Really, good for him! However, in a recent interview Norris was asked about what we’re all wondering, on whether or not he’d be open to making a cameo in Better Call Saul — as both Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have both expressed interest. Long and short of it, he’s not into the idea.
I have very conflicted views on ‘Better Call Saul.’ You know, I’m such a big fan of ‘Breaking Bad.’ So, I thought it was the perfect show and I thought it ended perfectly and to just kind of mess with that in any way, what’s the upside? You have to make another perfect show, you know? I’m going to watch it like a mother watches her kids playing baseball or something, because I want it to be so good and I want it to work and I want it to be great. But I think they’re going to turn that show into something completely different. And, smartly, it’s going to be its own show. And maybe, years down the line, maybe I’ll show up on that show. But, I’m afraid.
As an audience member, we said our goodbyes to him. And it might be weird to see him again. I know that sounds corny.
Oh, I agree with you. Maybe a few years down the line, once that show gets established and has its own rhythm, maybe then something comes up. But, it certainly wouldn’t be for a long time. If ever.
I do agree on that point, that with the way the character of Hank exited the series, it might be almost kind of traumatic to see him again. Sometimes it’s best the dead stay buried. (Well, most of the time, it’s best that the dead stay buried.) Plus, contextually it wouldn’t make much sense, since Hank and Saul barely even had any direct interactions in Breaking Bad in the first place.
But as far as making another perfect show? Dude. I get what he’s saying but homeboy is still currently appearing in Under the Dome. That is so far from a perfect show that you’d need to take a bus, train, ferry, canoe and then a ten mile hike just to get there. What I’m saying is that Under the Dome is not a very good show.
