Vince Gilligan Wants Mike on Better Call Saul

Great minds think alike. "The character that springs to mind would be Mike (Jonathan Banks)," the Breaking Bad creator told EW when asked who he wanted to appear on Bob Odenkirk's upcoming prequel. "I would say the sky’s the limit, at least theoretically speaking. Realistically speaking, we’ve got a whole lot of actors, and the world is now well-aware of their wonderful talents and abilities, and therefore Breaking Bad has probably made it tougher for Peter and I to get some of these folks pinned down for another TV show." Don't worry. If you want Banks back, all you have to do is pry him out of Community's cold dead hands. Or the cold dead hands of whatever project he might be working on this spring. If he's in someone's hands, they will be cold and dead before he can be pried from them.
