'Better Call Saul' Goes To Court: Updates On 'Breaking Bad' Spinoff

AMC

The details of "Better Call Saul," the "Breaking Bad" spinoff that may either be a prequel or a sequel to the show, have been sketchy.

But in a recent interview with Yahoo TV, writer/ producer Peter Gould hinted that Saul the lawyer will spend some time inside a courtroom. Gould noted that Saul (Bob Odenkirk) has a clownish look and said, "I've been hanging around in courtrooms lately, and it's not as broad as I thought originally. He dresses in a ridiculous way, he's got billboards, he's got ridiculous ads, but he is a shrewd customer."

When asked if he was hanging around there as research for the spinoff, Gould said, "Yeah, there's a little bit of that. A little bit of research."

Gould also noted why they chose to focus on Saul: "I think we started realizing that this was a character, and Bob was certainly a guy, who could carry a TV show."

Earlier, THR reported that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul expressed interested in appearing on the show. At the time, show creator Vince Gilligan said, "Personally, I'd have a hard time resisting putting all these guys in for a cameo or two every now and then." So would we, Vince. So would we.
