Bob Odenkirk says there are more Breaking Bad cameos on the way for Better Call Saul
Better Call Saul concluded its second season on AMC Monday night, and while the episode had much to offer, there was one special moment that ultimately hit the writer's room floor.
Said writer/director Vince Gilligan to EW, "Since Chuck was in the hospital and was about to get a CAT scan, I thought it'd be a fun for Hank's wife, Marie, played by the gorgeous Betsy Brandt to be the one operating the machine, since as we know she's an X-ray technician."
Gilligan was ultimately talked out of the idea by his staff. "They love Betsy just as much as I do, but it would have distracted the viewer in the moment. It was a big moment in which we wanted to stay squarely inside of Chuck's head as he goes through the terror and the agony of the scan. If our attention was diverted by Betsy, it would sort of dull the moment as it were, dramatically."
While not getting the Brandt cameo is a bummer, it makes sense. Here's hoping we can get it back sometimes in the episodes to come!
