The casts and producers of "Breaking Bad" and his prequel "Better Call Saul" were at Comic-Con on Thursday to remember the former and talk about the future of the latter.
In a panel for "Better Call Saul," creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould teased that the upcoming fourth season would bring more overlap with "Breaking Bad." Among the revelations, viewers will encounter a character that has never been seen in "Breaking Bad" next season, but Bob Odenkirk's Saul Goodman references in the first episode in which he appears.
"This season, you meet Lalo, portrayed by a great actor named Tony Dalton," Gould said. In the scene of Breaking Bad, where Walter and Jesse take Saul for dessert and threaten to bury him, Saul's reprimand Lalo.
"I think you'll see some familiar faces that you'll enjoy," Gould said. "I know that I do it too."
Gould and Odenkirk also talked about the connection between the two shows ̵
Gould said that a similar idea came to him from Noah Hawley, creator and showrunner of "Fargo" and "Legion".
"Noah Hawley told me we were at an event, & # 39; I have a pitch for you for your show – he'll never be Saul Goodman."
After the "Better Call Saul" panel took the Actors of "Breaking Bad" on the Hall H stage. Gilligan, who joined them as presenter Bill Burr, said that none of the actors could appear on stage in "Better Call Saul," that neither Walter White by Bryan Cranston nor Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman would appear in "Better Call Saul." but added, "I suspect we would be painfully negligent" if Walter and Jesse did not appear in "Better Call Saul."
Gilligan also talked about it when he discovered that the show had cultural influence and Cranston said, "When you got the Emmy nomination and then won the Emmy for our first seven episodes, that was the turning point for me." Gilligan said when they named Cranston's name for his first "Breaking Bad" Emmy victory in 2008, "all the air went out of my lungs, I jumped up, I never did that shit, I jumped up and got lost so hard in the hands that I had to put them in ice water.
