'Breaking Bad' Creator Having Second Thoughts about 'Better Call Saul'

'Breaking Bad' Creator, Vince Gilligan is  Having Second Thoughts about 'Better Call Saul'

Filming for the Breaking Bad Spinoff, 'Better Call Saul', has started filming this week. According to recent reports, Jonathan Banks will be a series regular, along with Michael McKean. Patrick Fabian from The Last Exorcism, and Rhea Seehorn from Franklin & Bash will play attorneys, and Michael Mando has also joined as a career criminal. It was also reported that Aaron Paul has visited the writer's room, and it is likely that Paul and Bryan Cranston will show up with background cameos at some point during the first season. However, Dean Norris will not. In an interview with the Associated Press Norris said he had no plans on revisiting the role.

“I don’t think they’ll let me do a little cable show,” he said in an interview this week while promoting the film “Small Time.”

“I think that experience was that experience. I’m not a big fan of kind of revisiting something that has already been done. But I think it’s going to be awesome. So I can’t wait to see it.”

Last week, Vince Gilligan spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the show, and it looks like Vince Gilligan is having second thoughts about the show. He said that production is a week behind and that by the end of the week, it will most likely be two weeks behind. He also does not know if Better Call Saul would end up being a success like other TV show spinoffs, or if it will end up being a total failure.

It sounds like Vince Gilligan is actually human. Despite creating a cult classic like 'Breaking Bad' he is afraid that the next show will not do as well. Something that anyone would feel if they are creating a new show.

Casting directors are still casting extras to appear in the show. If you have not already, apply today.
