Better Call Saul is currently in the middle of its second season.
During a panel conversation at PaleyFest, several of the series’ cast members mentioned which Breaking Bad character they’d like to see return. Patrick Fabian, who plays Howard Hamlin, picked one of the original series’ more minor characters:
I always thought it would be funny if somehow Howard ran into [Saul’s future bodyguard] Huell (Lavell Crawford) at the hot dog stand. Maybe they don’t even say anything, but just the idea of the two of them standing beside one another and looking at one another, I think that would be a treat for the fans.”
Meanwhile, Rhea Seehorn, who plays Kim Wexler, said she’d just like a scene with Mike (Jonathan Banks):
I was a huge Breaking Bad fan. Even just meeting the entire cast, as I have at the premieres, I think they’re all amazing. But I haven’t had a scene with Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) yet. I’m going to rope him into a scene whether he likes it or not. I’m going to make him do a scene with me. There would probably be a stare off. They’re both silent people. I think Kim always has her stickers, though, at the toll booth. I don’t think she likes upsetting that guy.”
Series star Bob Odenkirk revealed he’d like to see Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) appear:
I would love to see Aaron [Paul] (Jesse Pinkman). In Breaking Bad, he was the one who referenced Saul, so I imagine he’s had some interaction with Saul. But my character isn’t Saul yet, so I don’t know, but I would love to see him in it. He’s such a great actor and I’m so excited for the things he’s doing. He stays busy, and I imagine when we want him, he’ll be too busy to do it.”
Odenkirk may not be too far off the mark. Recently, Paul teased a possible cameo on Better Call Saul.
